I craft!

20110712-024205.jpgMy friend Nina had a wrap bracelet.  I coveted it.

Then I saw some lovely ones in a shop in Hawaii.  My coveting went up a notch.  But not $170 worth of covet.

Maggie Makes made one.

And I decided that I would do it.  Despite my utter lack of crafting experience or know-how.

I summoned the craftiest lady I know.  We went to a bead store and agonized over the weird selection of largely cat-lady flavored geegunk.  They didn’t have the little metal beads we wanted, so we settled on semi-precious stones.  Then, we read some instructions and just had at it.

And I’m totally pleased with the result!  I ordered some more beads online and I think I will make another one!

  1. OHMIGOSH! It looks so good!!! i’m not even halfway done with mine…I’m so proud of your newfound craftiness!!!!

    Thanks for the shout-out – we should remind all readers that this was a Maggie production 100% – if it was me in charge, we’d still be at the crazy cat lady store! Always an inspiration Miss Maggie.

    P.S. I didn’t know you had a blog! I’m so excited to forage….

  2. Love it! I have a similar wrap bracelet that I bought from Stella & Dot. Dang, I should have made my own!
