Another Pandora bracelet
It was Sandy's birthday this week. She absolutely loved the Pandora bracelet that DH bought for my birthday that I featured in my blog last month and the beads that I made to adorn it. Sandy's long term partner, Chris, picked up on the hint and got her a Pandora bracelet and enlisted my help in putting together some beads to go onto it.
Sandy's colours are pink, blues and purples. I had already started knitting a pair of pink bedsocks as one of her presents and so we went with blues and purples for the bracelet. Chris paid for the bracelet, mum and dad bought the sterling silver clips to stop the beads moving about, Sharon bought the silver flower charm spacer and I made the glass beads and sterling silver PMC spacers. I'm glad to say that she was really pleased with it (and the socks!)
The photograph of her bracelet has given me an idea for presenting the large hole Pandora-style beads that I make on my website (which as you know, I am currently going through the machinations of changing the structure of in order to make it easier to maintain). More on that soon, though.
In the meantime, being self-employed this week has given me far too much freedom to watch Wimbledon and football instead of doing work!! However, Andy Murray isn't playing til Saturday (have to miss that one), there are no historically long matches on the cards, England don't play til Sunday so I am hoping to get plenty done on Friday - including the jewellery photographs promised earlier in the week. I hope I can have a productive day :-)
