Two posts in less than 24 hours might be more than you can bear from me, but I just finished this up this morning, over a cup of coffee, and it's too stinkin' cute not to share. Utilizing a design idea from the latest issue of Bead Unique magazine (Lisa Kettell), this cuff bracelet is made from an actual baseball - why (when I was sitting at the 9 THOUSAND games my son played during his Little League/Club Ball/High School and College baseball years) I never thought of this, kills me - oh, the fortune to be made from overzealous Little League moms!
A vintage rhinestone earring has been sewn to the front, as well as approx. 125 glass pearls (strung one at a time) around the edges. My son is concerned that the bucket of balls in the garage might disappear, and has instructed me to go buy "pearls" - who wants new baseballs?! He's just lucky I didn't grab one of the signed ones!
