The blue bracelet is made with navy quilt binding as the base. I worked in some beads I found, others from broken jewelry. It is a mermaid's treasure trove of turquoise stones, lapis, and various glass beads that were stitched atop of recycled yarns and fibers that I couched on top of the binding. The second bracelet I had started some time ago, and had posted an image on the blog. I added more beads and the end crimps and clasp. This one is a hodge-podge of beads and stones, gold chain, odd fibers.
I also found two balls of cotton yarn in my stash that I must have had left over from a project, or maybe they were in a bag of scrap yarn I rescued from a thrift shop. (I've so much yarn in my baskets now, various bits and balls in so many different colors, I am not certain where most of it came from anymore!) I love how cotton crochets into these flowers, and I am going to have to dig through my yarn and see I have more.
These are the latest blooms. Three layers of petals centered by a vintage button.

And yes, I changed the blog header. Again! I just wish I could find something I am happy with, but then I guess changing it often is really sort of reflective of my personality! Now off to indulge in a bit of mythology, some coffee and cross stitch.
