I Don’t Just Make Quilts…

I’m also a happy ‘crafter’!

Out of the different crafty things I like to make, the most favourite thing I love to create is wooden jewellery!

There’s something about working with an ‘organic’ type of medium that solely captures me…

I love the simplicities of their texture and aesthetic, the complexities of their shape and size, their smell (is that a bit gross to admit??) as well as the sound that the wooden beads make when softly clashing together.

Now this type of crafting isn’t rocket science!

To make, I simply use millinery elastic (or hat elastic) and a whole bunch of wooden beads.

It’s a super simple method but one hundred percent effective!

The itch to make something new for myself came when I was innocently perusing the craft aisles in Spotlight and came across a huge bag of mixed wooden beads for $4! Bargain! And knowing I already had millinery elastic at home, I knew I was onto some cheap crafting fun when I got home!

So here’s what I’ve made! Just a few easy-to-wear bracelets and necklaces…
