Lately I've found a love for making bracelets :p I managed to find some elastic cord and figured I had to do something with all these paper beads I made. So I picked up some little glass beads as well, and here's the result!



I also found some really pretty porcelain bird beads at Walmart. The remind me of china dishes.

Come to National Pigeon Day in Central Park NYC and sell them! People would love them and maybe you could donate a little something back to the cause!

Your bracelets are really beautiful especially with the birdies. I know those would sell if you do decide to sell them.
Reti,
You beat me to the question. I'd buy a few in a minute
Daryl
I would even buy one or two.

Tell her I said congrats on making her first bracelet! :) Sure is a lot of fun.
You guys will get the hang of the site after a while. It can be confusing at first how to work all the stuff. But as far as how to post pictures, you can upload them at tinypic.com. It's free and no account is required. Just be sure to choose 'message board' where it says resize, so the pictures don't stretch out the page :) Once it's uploaded, it'll give you a list of links for your picture. You can paste the URL one here and the picture will automatically show, or you can pick the 'direct link', and it will link us to the picture instead.

Thanks everyone for the compliments :) Next time I go back to the store, I'll look for more bird beads. They didn't have very many at the time.

As far as selling them, I was thinking about that. Just didn't know what to set the price as :p 3 of the bracelets in the picture are mine, a green one, a bird one, and one with the fat round paper beads (my mom's favorite kind :p), but the rest are up for grabs.

Becky,
I'd like the other green bracelet, and one of the bird bracelets when you set a price. Just let me know, so I can send out payment.

I'll get to making some pink ones :) Hopefully I'll get to go to walmart sometime this week to get more string. Hopefully I'll be able to get some clasps too so not all of my bracelets have to be stretchy :p

Hmmm. How does $5 each sound? By the way, been making some pink beads for those bracelets :) I found out I didn't have any with pink on them anymore. Luckily I found a bunch of old pink club fliers, so I'm using those. Good way to recycle paper :D Just need to spray some acrylic sealer on them so water won't make them sticky.

Becky,
I would like one of the green bracelets, and one of the bird bracelets. Please pm me with address so I can send payment. I'm also going to check around and see if I can find you some more beads to use. There's a bead shop a few towns down, I think it's www.caravanbead.com (I'll check for sure with owner when I see her again)

Yep :) It would be much easier if I had paypal though. A [ex]friend of my dad's screwed up his paypal account, so we're working on getting it fixed. Once it is, online selling will be much easier since the majority of ebay users pay with it.
