Plum Blossom Bracelet

The pattern for this lovely bracelet was created by my good friend, Carolyn DeGroff. I used amethyst fire polish Czech glass, and size 8 silver lined light amethyst beads along with size 11 transparent light amethyst AB seed beads.

Teaching a bead class

I taught my first "commercial" or paid bead class yesterday. It ended up being a private class as the second student did not show up. The class was a square stitch bracelet embellished with dagger beads. I was very happy with the progress. She nearly completed her bracelet and did not have any concerns at all about being able to finish on her own. She said she will be making more for Christmas presents, that delighted me, yes!
