I'm addicted to Pintrest

 Just like many of you I could spend hours leaping through Pin after Pin, Pinning projects, beauty items, quotes.  In between Pinning ( it is like going steady with a guy, those first phone calls that last for hours but only seem like minutes have gone by)  Like I was saying the other day I stumble upon Anthropologie knock off Vintage Lace Bracelet and I had all the stuff to make it except for the ribbon bars

Here is the Anthropologie and the knock-off

Here is the list of supplies but go over to the site to follow her directions

You’ll need-
-two lengths of 6″x2″ ribbon or lace for the base and the backing (doesn’t have to be vintage, it gets covered)
-enough vintage lace/trim to cover the your ‘base’ (see above)
-extra lace/trim to tie
-embroidery thread
-invisible thread
-beads, pearls, etc. for embellishing

Here are the ones I made while I was watching bad TV.  I love them.  I haven't wore them yet waiting for the right outfit.  I'm such an East Coast girl. This is a great way to use left over bead from past projects.
























  I think I'm going to pull out my Denim Jacket, skirt,  white T-shirt and my cowgirl boots and sport my new  Bling



























 I really like those clear sequins. This one is the first one  that I made it took me twice as long to bead as the  one above.





Ciao for now!!!!!
