I'm happy to report that my first attempt is still holding together and although it does twist a bit I'm able to straighten it out!
After a bit of practise I have now completed my first 'for sale' beaded wrap.
I was a bit less ambitious so only a small amount of silver and pretty plastic button to fasten. Beads are a pretty multicolour jade and, this time, thy're all the same size. I also invested in some stronger and firmer stringing thread. The bracelet is more robust and will, I hope, be less prone to twisting.
I felt confident enough to put this one up for sale in Shoogly's Folksy shop yesterday.
I'll continue to develop these and hopefully have more to list in the coming months......
Here's the result in pictures:
