SYCN # 2 Bracelett

I made my little memory wire bracelett at my friend Michelle's when we got together the other week for a craft day.  Its safe to say that Michelle has got more beads that you can shake a stick at - LOL!!  She patiently helped me and my other crafting friends all to make some lovely braceletts and charms - we all had a really enjoyable afternoon and we are now all budding jewellery makers - with a long list of "kit" that we've got to go and buy!!!!

So if you've got something that you've made recently that hasn't been posted before don't forget to enter this "anything goes" challenge.

Until next time....
