About a week ago at 1:00 a.m. I was catching up on my favorite blogs. Cindy Wimmer had probably just logged off. The blog post was on these three awesome bracelets and how they were for sale in her Etsy shop. I raced over to the shop with anticipation of them already sold. No way! They were still up for grabs. As we know, there is generally nothing for sale in Cindy's shop for very long. I could not wait for them to arrive and as you can see they were worth waiting for. As usual, Cindy and I exchanged emails on the arrival and she was relieved they fit me so well. Included in her email was a compliment that ended up to be my personal challenge. She said "btw, you could have made these yourself". So, I reflected on that comment last evening and said to myself let me make this trio a foursome.
But before I show you that, you have to see this Cindy necklace I purchased over a year ago. This is one of my favorite necklaces that I will cherish forever.
The personal challenge that Cindy unknowingly gave me in that email last week is this gold and black bangle.
I am super pleased with the results and love the way the bracelets all work together. Cindy, thank you for making me reach a little higher.
When I am not making jewelry, this is my other world of crafting. How cute is that...
A late addition is this cowl neck piece with an open weave design. I have had this yarn for a few months. The fiber content is more cotton, so I had to find a pattern to support it. This open weave crochet design worked out perfect. This will be going to a friend for her birthday.
