Playing with beads

 Finally had a bit of inspiration, been looking at my beads for weeks and did not know what to do, finally achieved these. Above is a necklace I made myself with some nice big blue wood beads I got off Create and craft. Thought Ted could show them off for me, just love this Bear got him out the charity shop and when you switch him on he talks and moves, how could you not love him, worth every penny of his £3.50
Above are some bracelets have been learning myself to make where you do the knotting and tie your beads in as you go. I like these and are dead easy to do once you remember the sequence of the cord when you are doing the knots. Hope you like my efforts


  1. Dot, these are wonderful, all of them.
    Thank you for commenting on my slide mailer, they are always fun to alter.

  2. You do such a great job with those beads. always get compliments on the b/w ones you sent me.

  3. Brilliant job Dot. Love the necklace and teddy models well. I've seen these bracelets on people, they look so effective, x

  4. Fabulous Dot! Love the knotted bracelets and that teddy is definitely worth more than £3.50 for his looks alone. :o)

  5. they look fab Dot. something I would enjoy doing too. what a bargain Ted!

  6. Miss Multi talented - great stuff and lovely to see the variety of colours and designs. Love your teddy, too - he's gorgeous. I'm 'into' toys and baby stuff right now ... John thinks I'm cracking up!! Forgot to say on the last one that I loved your step card with Betty Boop and the wedding card is fab. You're so good at personalising things x
