micro macrame bracelet

I still have some pieces of jewellery to show you but I haven't got round to writing posts, or, in some cases, even photographing them.  Photographing jewellery is a nightmare for me.  I usually use my little light box, but that was on the top floor and I was downstairs.  It was a sunnyish day so I thought I'd go outside.... just a shame my garden isn't picturesque.

I'll put it on the edge of the bunny run and take pictures there, that should work.


Oops, I got my garden trainers in the shot and they're FILTHY.  Let's try something a bit more artistic.



Hmmm, it's not really sitting right and if I show this picture everyone will know that my lone flowerbed only contains weeds.  Overgrown weeds.  And a patch of mud.  And straw and sawdust from the hutches.  And bunny poo.  Back to the run.


Oh no, now Harry's photobombed the shot!  As if anyone is going to look at my bracelet with Harry there.  He's so cute and sweet, I'll just spend a few minutes stroking him instead.  Right, Harry stroked.  Back to the photos.


Not only is there a bunny in this one, there's also my filthy trainers AND a torn up toilet roll tube (What would Sandra think?).  It's going to have to do.  I clearly can't take a better shot.

This micro macrame bracelet was made in a workshop at The Bead Shop Nottingham a little while ago.  It's made using C-lon cord in grey/silver, silver 8/0s and some faceted beads that might be 6mm.  Or might not.  I love this bracelet and wear it a lot.

ROTFLMAO! Sandra thinks ... I hope it was Harry that was playing with that TP tube, and that Miss Wendy wasn't trying to craft with it! Harry's so cute he can get away with anything :D

I think this is the funniest photo montage you've ever posted - that's a very pretty bracelet - it looks quite elegant and floaty on the shrub :D Am I the only one that read the comment about bunny poo and then actually looked for it? LOL!

I like your photos! Real beats ideal hands-down, at least when you're looking at your own or someone else's life. Plus it's always a treat to see that handsome bunny.
Your bracelet's great. Micro macrame is fun, isn't it?

The greyish wood on the edge of the bunny run makes a rather good background, actually. Nothing wrong with your instincts at all.

The bracelet is gorgeous. I've not seen anything like it before. Of course, Harry did steal the show.

The bracelet is beautiful - such an unusual design. And ah, yes - the perennial photographing projects problem! Been there many times! :)

This is a really pretty bracelet! I loved your photo shoot too. How can you beat a bunny backdrop? So cute.
