I made this bracelet the other night when I made the necklace from yesterday's post:
I like how it turned out--it's very beachy and, as a co-worker called it, "fun". The problem? The beads are dyed and the color bled onto my skin! I looked down at one point and my wrist was turning green, red and orange. That's something I'm going to have to watch out for when I wear it. I know there are things you can do to prevent dyed beads from bleeding, but I can't remember what they are. Time for more research, I suppose. It may be too late to do anything since I've already strung the bracelet. If so, I suppose I'll be keeping this one for myself. I don't want to sell or give away something that will fade on the new owner.
We're enjoying a very wet, cool day here. Nap weather, as I call it. It's a nice break from the 100 degree temps we've had recently.
Seven more working days until vacation! I haven't been watching The Weather Channel. I hope no hurricanes are on their way across the Atlantic!
