Alphabe-Thursday - "J" - "J as in jewellery-making

Jenny Matlock

It's thursday today, and this week's letter for Mrs. Matlock's Alphabe-Thursday is "J". My "J-word" is "jewellery" or "The joy of jewellery-making" (Which is also the tagline for my blog):

Here is Elisabet stringing beads on elastic beading-cord to make her own necklace.

Here we see a beadboard,

where Elisabet has planned her colour-scheme for her necklace.

Every beader starts out with an idea for their piece.
It is happy work.

But beading can be tiring if you are only five years old.

Luckily Mother can finish the necklace for her.

And let her take a rest.

Happy Alphabe-Thursday!

Beading looks like a lot of fun. The art lady at the nursing home had the residents make a necklace with beads. My mom made a red, white and blue one. She said she had a lot of fun doing it.

I like the smiley face behind Elisabet in the first photo! :) She is adorable, Anna.

Ann said...

Elisabet looks so intent on what she's doing in that first picture. One of these days I'm going to learn how to do that stuff. I hope it doesn't tire me out like it did Elisabet :)

It must be really tiring work!

Elisabet is lovely. What a beautiful girl. And she looks talented like her Momma!

Anna, could you e-mail me your etsy address? I can't get it to link here.

Great J day post!

Not being a crafter, I'd find it exhausting too. Totally can relate!

So sweet. I love the photos of her drifting off. What a promising little jewelry crafter you have on your hands.
