Man Beads Grr!

For the past few days we've had our guitar loving friend friend Anthony staying with us and it was music to my ears when he said "Do you have any beads?". Ooooooh yes I certainly do- just about every sort of bead you can imagine my little chum! Woohoo! He subsequently requested a "manly" bracelet with my little glass seed beads and so I got cracking!




I've never made a "manly" bracelet before and being the ultimate girly girl I had a challenge on my hands to not choose pink and glitter. I settled for black, brown and forest green (hehe the forest green beads have a slight shimmer to them but he wont notice and I got my glitter fix- phew).




I used a seed bead needle, black nymo, a silver plated twisty clasp and size 11 beads and simply strung the beads on the nymo thread and strengthened around the clasp. I doubled up the nymo for extra manly sturdyness ("sturdy" is a rather manly word isn't it?!) and voila- a man bracelet...maybe a mracelet? haha.

Brownie Points if you can work out what the mracelet is having its photoshoot on...
