Letter from Tony Explaining his bead work...
Hey there my friend, how goes things with you. Well once you opened this letter you would have found the bracelet that I myself made for you. I truly hope it fits and that you like it. It took me four days and about 32 hours total over four days. It was a challenge because it is the 1st time that I have ever used that particular stitch, so I made quite a few mistakes along the way and would have to peel back numerous beads and thread. I had to make a necklace for someone in order to get the beads necessary to make the bracelet.
I think it came out pretty well. I didn't know what colors to choose from so I choose Neptune High colors (smile) so to speak.
Anyway this is just a little start to my Beadwork. I would love to know what you think. I have more coming your way for your Birthday. But I wanted you to have my first Beaded Project since I got here. Talk to you soon.
Also, if you would like to send a care package to Tony, you can do so by going to the following link Access Catalog and putting in the state of Washington, and then it only gives one option for the facility and then enter #872133.
