Yet another thing we’re doing!

Yep, there is just no end to it all! So as we were going through the store last night we ended up in the art section, because some people around here neeeeeeeded pipe cleaners! Yeah, I know, I know, they’re called chenille sticks, or some such thing nowadays to be all politically correct, and not influence young brains. They will always be pipe cleaners to me. 😛 So while we were in that section I saw little wooden beads. Too little for the project that I had in mind a few months back, so I started hunting for some that were a little bit bigger, and yaaaayy I found the last little container of them not on the right shelf!

SO, the idea… Celtic knot jewelery!!! I’ve been making a bunch of cord with my Lucet, and I have actually used a bit of it re-stringing pendants that I had in my jewelry box, but I didn’t wear anymore because the chains had gone all tarnished and yuck. You know how cheap costume jewelry goes sometimes.  But the pendants were still awesome, and I hated to waste them.  Oh, and we put some of our fimo clay charms on some cord too.  Anyway, a couple of months back I remembered seeing the Tying It All Together youtube channel, and he had done some knots. One was a heart, and another one was so pretty, it kind of looked like a Celtic flower! That led to a video in the side bar where a lady made a Celtic cross! So today we are making Celtic knot jewelry, and I’m adding little wooden beads to the sides just for a little weight to the cord. If we get good at it, and they’re pretty enough, I’ll add some to the shop, but right now we’re just messing around with it, and it’s turning out pretty nice.

The first heart I made was in blue and orange and white variegated yarn (just some cord I had on hand), and the UPS guy came to drop off some packages today, and even he said it looked cool. Not sure if it’s because it’s Bronco colors or not, but if it gets a comment out of the UPS guy, well, then it’s got to be pretty ok! And yep, pictures coming soon! I was thinking, that I have to dig out some natural fiber yarn instead of acrylics, because I think it would sell better as an all natural necklace, than a made of plastic yarn necklace. Although the acrylics do have a wider rage of more vibrant colors. So we’ll see.

Happy Monday folks! Back to the cord making! 😀
