Yarn-Wrapped Fun!

Yarn-wrapped beads are my new exciting jewelry adventure. They are quite simple to make, but you couldn't tell judging from the intricate designs the can create together!

I started wrapping the beads last Friday, when I had some 'down time' between classes. And I couldn't stop. I made 3 necklaces this weekend by stringing the beads on a satin cord and knotting the cord to keep the beads in place.

The first necklace has an orange center bead and shades of blues.

To the right is another necklace I made this weekend. It reminds me of spring!

It also matched the fabric of the chair in my craft room/office.

The necklace to the left is not for sale! I love it too much. I've already worn it twice since I've made it and recieved several compliments.

I will probably make a few more of the same style, though. The funky yarns add a little pizazz, and the graduated fade from dark red to light pink works well, in my opinion.
Let me know what you think!
