Hello and welcome!
I’m pleased to present today’s crafting whim… beaded tie chains. In our family they’re called: ‘jibby-dabby dibby-dabbies’… Even when I lived at home, dad could never remember what they’re called and was always losing them… “Hon, have you seen my jibby-dabby dibby dabby?” And mom usually knew were to find it! So the name stuck. Dad likes to use tie chains, but they’re so boring. Either gold or silver and that’s pretty much it. S,o I decided to do some makeovers for him.
It’s easy to remove the chain from an inexpensive tie chain and then attach a string of beads to the base. I used Beadalon 7 strand .18″ satin silver wire with #1 crimp beads and I chose some semiprecious ‘manly’ natural stone beads for him…
Hildy and Jo hematite beads are classy and go with most anything.
He has started wearing more purple, so I put together this set of Bead Gallery Amethyst Serpentine Jasper beads.
And here’s one I made a while back from Bead Gallery peacock and camouflage jasper stones.
Of course, he mixes them up with colors I never would have thought of… and they’re not too bad. : )
Well, there you have it… an idea to jazz up your guy’s tie chains.
Thanks for stopping by today!
