I made the bracelets pictured above by simply threading my choice of beads on to a piece of elastic. Really easy first project to have a go at if you want to try some basic jewellery making skills.
It was my brothers birthday this week so we are celebrating with a BBQ at the weekend. Should be fun. I am going to make him a birthday cake so I will post it for you to look at once it is done ... only planning something simple though because it is the school holidays and the children's social life is pretty hectic!!
