Getting Back to Beading Again :)

Hello to all my subscribers:
I know it has been a while since you heard from me. I had a beautiful baby girl last June and she and her sisters have taken up most of my time and energy. I am hoping to do more post as I get back to beading again.  Below is two of my bracelets I finished recently and one wrap bracelet that I am in the process of completing. In the first bracelet I used black Chinese linen cord, brass silver-plated faceted cube beads or some may call cornerless cubes, and black round Tagua beads and red rice Tagua Bugle Bead from Ecuadorian Hands.

For the bracelet below I used tan leather cord from Leather Cord USA and silver cornerless beads and some reddish brown round wood beads and a button bead by Tierra cast.

If you don't know already today was a big day for Apple, they unveiled their newest iPad. The iPad has a HD screen with 4G capabilities. It also has a 5 megapixel camera with 1080p video recording. The starting price is $499 for 16GB WiFi model and with 4G starting at $629.00. The iPad's processor has been upgraded to an A5X vs. A5 which the iPad 2 has. The graphics processor has been upgraded to quad-core.

I have not been given the privilege to view the iPad HD in person. I don't even own an iPad, butI hope to get one soon and I can be content with iPad 2 for now.
