I learned this technique on Beadwork on the forums. Last year it was discussed many times sometimes as Fringe Bracelet, sometimes as Cha-Cha Bracelet and sometimes as Urchin Bracelet.
My husband and sons can’t believe that I’m going to list this bracelet. They say it too big and beady. Men, what do they know? I made one of these in brown last year for a friend after she saw one and she loved it. I would love opinions from women, after all, they are who I designed it for!

Do you love to read? I do. And I love using a bookthong instead of a scrap of paper or a piece of junk mail. These are great because they are as thin as a piece of cord so they fit nice and snug inside the book and the beads on the end keep them from getting pulled out.
They also do double duty in my house. One of my cats, Emma (tabby in my profile photo), is the anti-literacy cat. If I am lying down with a book, she likes to get in between my face and the book. If I move the book closer to my face, she climbs over the book to get closer to my face. This is where the bookthong comes in. If I hold the book in my right hand and dangle the bookthong with my left hand Emma gets interested in swatting at the bookthong and I can read my book.

The earrings below were listed in my shop a few days ago. They really are a lot of fun. I have a pair myself that I wear at least 3-4 times a weak. They are nice and lightweight and go with almost anything. These are made from a chainmaille weave known as Shaggy Loops or Flip Flop weave - How can they not be fun with names like that?
