This photo was sent to me by one of my Etsy friends, Claudia. Yesterday I announced on our Native American Forum Thread that I had to do some cleaning but would rather bead. Since Claudia is also a beader she related to my words.
Claudia recently posted a bracelet on Etsy that I loved and shared with my friends on Face Book. Everyone thought I had made the bracelet....they missed that it belonged to Claudia. I had to post a clarification that it was not mine and was done by Claudia.
Later she sent me the instructions for the bracelet and I did do one in different colors. I appreciate her willingness to share. Her is Claudia's bracelet:
And here is mine done from the same pattern with different beads:
It is amazing how different two braclets made just alike can be.

Thanks Claudia for sharing my thoughts on cleaning versus beading, for your willingness
to share techniques, and being my "Beading Buddy"!
