Hubby's First Bracelet

About this design:

This is his first attempt at making a piece of jewelry for me...they don't call me SparkleChick for nothing!
I LOVE the bling!

    Thank you Rosie, Lynn & Christine!

    Rosie, it was definitely brave of him to go near the beads! He actually went to the craft store for the wire! And yes, he’s a sweetie to make me something so very “me” :)

    Lynn, I passed along the kudos to Bob…hoping it will inspire him to get a Wig Jig! He thought that would be a fun “toy!” Yeah, Bob’s not so much into jewelry so I think any bracelet he makes will be mine…all mine! :)

    Christine, we both laughed out loud at your comment that Bob might make my beads disappear! That was funny!
    Yes Christine, you know I love pink!

    Thank you all!

    Debbi – this is amazing!
    I can’t imagine Larry attempting to make anything. We’ve said it before – he’s definitely a keeper!

    Holey Moley, what a great job he did – does that mean you have to share YOUR beads or will he get a stash of his own (that you can raid). I am in awe of this – he is sure a sweetie. At first I thought you made it FOR him – I was thinking – aw, poor guy!

    Debbi aka Sparkle Chick says:

    Jeanne, thank you for your kind words! Yep, he’s a keeper..actually Bob & I have BOTH said, “who else would have us?” :)

    Linda, thank you! That’s funny that you thought I made this for HIM! He’s sweet but I don’t think pink bling is his thing! :)

    Thanks chickies!

    Jade aka Caryn says:

    what a great job. So fun that he shows interest in your beading. Now you have to lock up your stash or have the “hub only” beads lol, hey wait now you can shop for lots and lots of beads and tell him you will share…this could work to your advantage haha
