Today I decided to play hooky and make some beaded chatelaines. I went to a retreat with a few friends about a week ago and my friend Lee was making some beautiful chatelaines. So today I pulled out my beads and made eight. They are made with beading wire specific for making necklaces and bracelets and is very sturdy. The gold loop was from a sale rack necklace that I deconstructed
for parts. The loop is spacious for hanging sewing tools from such as seam rippers, threaders, scissors, and reading glasses. I wanted one to hang my glasses from while longarming, so that is what inspired me to make these.
I decided to do a giveaway of one of the chatelaines. I'm going to giveaway the purple and white glass beaded one that is shown in the last picture on this blog.
To qualify for the drawing, you need to post a comment to my blog, and leave your email in the comment. The drawing will take place Sunday 11-21-2010 at around 5 pm. I live in WI so it is central time.
All of the chatelaines are made with either glass beads, shell, or stones.
This lovely chatelaine could be your's, so please post to my blog. You may even want to list my blog as a favorite.
Thanks for reading.
