Pretty Baubles

What treasures do these boxes hold?
Gold? Silver? Precious jewels?

Box Number One:


A beautiful bracelet handmade with sparkly, elegant Swarovski crystals and pearls. The clasp is magnetic and is sterling silver. Who made this treasure, you ask? My very talented and creative sister-in-law Sandy. She's about beading like I am about quilting...

Box Number Two tomorrow...

Isn't it great we all have our creative outlets - no matter what they are. This bracelet is so lovely. I can't believe how cute it is.

My sister also loves to bead, that is just so beautiful!

Jackie said...

That is absolutely gorgeous! She is a very talented beader. I have also dabbled in beading, but not to the extent that she has, lucky you to be the recipient!

Pretty! What is it about sister-in-laws and beading. Mine gave me a bracelet she made for Christmas. Lovely little quilt in the background.

Looks like the sister in-law is a keeper.

Beautiful bracelet - I love the colours!

Robyn said...

Oh wow!! She is a very talented lady and the piece is gorgeous!!
My sisters are very different to me in what we do as well.
One paints beautifully and the other does woodwork and restoration stuff.
Each to our own and Sandy is very gifted!

Wow, that is really pretty! I really liked beading, especially those little amulet purses that you wear around your neck. Lucky you to have someone in the family who beads.

Such a pretty bracelet, how sweet that your SIL is so talented and shares her creations with you.
