Probably not, but that’s okay, because we can!
The challenge this time is--you guessed it--all about award season. Emmys, SAGs, Golden Globes, Oscars--all of them!
Our challenge was to come up with a craft inspired by a favorite movie or TV show, or something to show off on the red carpet. I gave it some thought and since I’d just watched Pride and Prejudice, I went with that movie. That’s my favorite version!
I figured I was probably going to make some type of jewelry, but what kind? I did some research and the movie was set in 1805-1810. In that time period, I saw that women wore a lot of coral, pearls, amethyst and garnet. I headed to the craft store with a couple of ideas in mind, but they didn’t have some of the things I needed. Again. This is getting frustrating! Out of two large chain stores--Michaels and Hobby Lobby, I’m having a hard time doing one stop shopping. At the last minute, I went with this bracelet. I love it. I’ve been looking a lot at the large beads available--they’re so pretty.
So as you can see, this bracelet is my shout out to the pearl and amethyst that was so popular in Elizabeth Bennet’s time. I love the delicate flowers on the purple and silver beads.
This is truly one of the simplest jewelry pieces to make! Just unscrew one of the ends of the bracelet, slide the beads on in the order you want, screw the end back on and you’re done! You can also easily change the look by just changing the beads to suit your mood. The two beads on either end are stopper beads. They have a silicone coating inside to keep them in place and the other beads from sliding all over the place.
