Here we go!
I have thoroughly enjoyed making new friends over the last year and enjoy reading their blogs just as much, tonight's blog hop made me think of my very dear friend 'L'. 'L' moved to Somerset a little while ago, which is about 5 hours away from us. I do miss her terribly as we do not get to 'see' each other very much but speak on the phone a lot! Anyway through a series of thoughts I decided that my theme for tonight would be presents or 'present' singular. I have made this for 'L' and I am going to show you how to make one:
Firstly, you need to cut a piece of Jewellery wire about 3 inches long and thread it through the heart bead leaving an inch of wire at the front. Bend the front piece of wire upwards:
Using your pliers, bend the shorter front piece of wire around the longer piece:
Wrap it round 3-4 times then cut off the excess (small piece only, you still need the longer piece), thread a small black bead onto the remaining wire and push down gently (I am using these small beads as spacers, but you can buy official spacers on any jewelery website):
Thread two small beads onto your wire:
PLEASE Note: you only need half of the beads on the necklace wire first!
Yes it's the letter 'E' brought to you by Rachel B!
Now for my own give-away, then I promise you can move on to the lovely Melissa at Sunlight Simplicity. You need to have a rummage round my blog and post a comment with the names of my hubbie and two children. I will draw the winner at random on Tuesday morning at 10am GMT.......
......And the prize?????
Your very own necklace that I made today!
Hope you have a great evening blog hopping - Night x
