I grew up as a third, if not more, generation knitter and as a result there was always a large stash of buttons in the house. This has led to a bit of an addiction to buttons and beads and a stash of my own. I’ve made the odd piece of jewelry with the beads but never anything major. Well the other day I found the most beautiful acorn beads and decided to make this.

once again my lovely apple tree is making a great model.

The Acorn bead takes centre stage.

And I found these cute “hand made” tags to add to the piece.

here’s the bracelet as a whole, arty shot care of my darling hubby.

The plan is to make a series of these based on woodland colours, Spring, Summer etc and maybe go mad and try selling them!!
