new jewelry, some "purdy" things

this weekend, i made these...
crocheted bracelets from a tutorial on a craft website. pretty, No?

this is a great way to while away the hours.....
which i did, making these little beauties...
also saw a salamandar on the floor behind my craft table.... no doubt trying to see if he could fit one over his body. i don't blame him. these were super fun. i learned to crochet on YouTube. who woulda thunk it?

Hi!
Thank you for the link. I'll try crocheting to make bracelets. I've never crocheted metal before. You are from the US, right? Where do you buy the raw materials from: beads, wires,.. etc?

Yes, Sandi, they really are purdy!! I love your site and blog. As for the salamander..YIKES! I don't like 'em. It must have been a girl salamander checking out all your cool jewelry.
