I am really happy with how the Bead Journal Project is going for me this year. I wasn't overly inspired last year, mostly because I didn't have enough time to devote to it. This year is a different story, however. Even though the pieces aren't taking me all that long to do, I'm really satisfied with how they're coming out.
Here's February's bracelet. Last year, at the very end of February, I left a day job that had become a source of more challenge than I cared to face each day (that's the nicest way I can think of to phrase it, so please don't ask!). Now on the one year anniversary of my emancipation, I have made a bracelet that symbolizes growth and change, with many of my very favorite colors.

(Just a snippit of cloth.. close to the beaders heart..on the backside).
This bracelet idea would work well with that... Lovely idea.
I've seen some "slap" bracelets, too where you use a thin piece of metal underneath the embroidered cloth.
Getting "emancipated" is wonderful..too. Great for you!
Thanks for posting..(another wonderful project idea!!!)...
A wonderful way to celebrate an emancipation!
PS Just read other comments... WOW, you painted that fabric!!! Ooooooooh!
