It did take a lot of time creating 10 bracelets to go on their journeys. From creating special designs and beading them up, took more time than I thought it would. I enjoyed making the bracelets, playing with the colors and designs.
I am still working on bracelets (but not for the Traveling Bracelets blog, as keeping track of 10 bracelets is more than enough for me). I am working on them only because I want to. Maybe I will offer them for sale, or maybe there will be some lucky recipient. Who knows.
But for now, it's fun, easy and relaxing. After a couple more, I might do something else to challenge myself and do something different. But for now, I like the easy simple bracelets to balance other challenges I have.
Here is what I have been working on:
I will be going there in November. So that was my inspiration for that bracelet.
A Kilim is a woven rug or tapestry made in a specific way. This is another Turkish inspiration. It is a work in progress. Close to being done, but not yet. I have to finish stitching the beadwork to the cuff and add the edging..
