The Shamparadora

20120824-080858.jpg

So this is what happens when you want ALL the bracelets ;)

I introduce to you the Shamparadora!!!

Shamballa style beading and knotting using Paracord and Pandora style beads… oh yeah :D

I recommend the Make It and Fake It tutorial to give you an idea of how to knot a Shamballa style bracelet.

I also recommend the Parcord Bracelet tutorial I linked previously for help with working with Paracord.

I used the knotting technique found on Trinkets in Bloom to fasten it.

I got my Pandora style beads from The Bead Shop in Manchester.

And all of this came from my addiction to Pinterest ;)

Paracord bracelet

Made using the following tutorial found on Pinterest:

Not only am I very happy with how this turned out, so is my husband who hasn’t taken it off since I made it. The tutorial is very easy to follow and the bracelet is very quick to make, even if you have never tried anything like this before.

I am now officially addicted to Paracord…

Knitty

Made based on the following Ideas found on Pinterest.

    

Needs more work before I’m happy with it, the pocket is too short and it bags out a lot, so will add in a few more rows and maybe some buttons.

Beading fun

Etsy Shop

So I’ve just listed my first item on Etsy, I’m keeping it simple to begin with by listing some original digital paintings to be used as desktop wallpapers. These will be inexpensive and include the right to print out a copy to use in the home.

Here’s my first one :D
