Boy's Sporty "Jewelry"

Once upon a time I designed jewelry.  While I still like to make something for myself or a friend every now and then, it is no longer my passion.  So a few weeks back I sorted through my beads and supplies, kept a manageable amount and bundled the rest up to sell on ebay.
Then the other day, my little O-man was looking under things and all over the house, saying, "were did it go?"  When I asked him what he was looking for he grinned and said, "My jewelry, Mommy.  My pretty stuff."  I finally stopped laughing and he asked me to make him a basketball necklace.  I'm not really sure where he got the idea from, but we went with it!

From my stash (see, Spring Stashbusting here!) I dug out some primary colored wooden beads, elastic and some fun sports ball beads and here is what we came up with:
O-man helped put the soccer, golf, foot, base and basket balls in a pattern and then we made a pattern with the wooden beads.  Since he plays pretty rough with his toys I doubled up the elastic and knotted it several times.  He's been incredibly proud of his necklace and bracelet and has worn them both everyday.

Peace be with you,
