Another despedida

Yesterday we had a despedida lunch for Joy, she’s on her way to Germany at the weekend.  I made her a bracelet, of course.

Having just made one for Jayne, I wanted to do this one a little differently.

In the UK I bought my wire from the Scientific Wire Company. I like that.

Lapis chips and more silver beads this time.

That's really fine wire, that 0.2mm stuff. I was already having my doubts.


I had to snip every single bead out. That took a while. But I couldn't waste all that silver, never mind the beads. I told the boys we could try melting down the wire scraps!

A night's sleep, and a couple hours work and here's what I came up with.

Here's Joy wearing it at lunch. This was before we all started crying!
