Happy What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday, everyone! It’s hard to believe next Wednesday will be the day before Thanksgiving here in the U.S.

Today’s desk shows I’m working on a knotted bracelet, this one will have over 100 beads on it.

I’ve long been a fan of Stephanie Sersich’s lush full bead bracelets and necklaces.

At bead shows I’ve even gotten to handle some of her knotted jewelry, and they feel just so wonderful. But I never was able to take one of her classes to learn how to do it.

Don’t know how I missed it, but six years ago she wrote a book explaining the process, and I just discovered it, Designing Jewelry with Glass Beads.

I saw her at the bead show I attended last month. Now I wish I’d bought some of her little flower beads. Ah. well. 🙁

So that’s what I’m up to today, listening to an audio book and knotting away at the Spiny Knotted Bead bracelet.

Wondering why I’m posting photos of my desk? Well it’s What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday, the day we all go visiting the creative spaces of creative people all over the world. The blog link party starts at Julia’s.

Happy creating!

P.S. Just before posting this I finished the bracelet. Meh.

I’m not thrilled with the results, but it was fun to be able to use a glass button I’d made a while back when I still had a lampworking studio. 🙂

  1. Happy WOYWW. I love those bracelets. They look heavy, but the feeling must be fantastic. Loving your creation. I have always thought about making some jewellery and bought myself a beading loom yesterday. Looking forward to it arriving and having a go. My fingers are not as agile as they used to be, so I may just find it too difficult. We will see. Ali x #42

  2. Hahahah! I love your honesty: “Meh.” But I think the bracelet looks amazing. Do you have other plans for the spiny beads? They’re very cool.

  3. I love bracelets like these – they make my wrists happy! Good for you for learning how to make them – they are
    bee-u-tiful!! Thanks for sharing! Lindart #60
