One of my friends commissioned me to make a beaded bracelet as a present for her other half, as he's from Egypt so she asked if I could use the colours of the Egyptian flag and incorporate his initials. I've been waiting until she'd given him it to post pics etc.
Once I'd looked at a picture of the flag I decided that the simplest thing to do was actually make the bracelet pretty much a replica of the flag but substituting the gold eagle in the centre with initials.
So this is the finished article:-
I was really pleased with how it turned out and, thankfully, the recipient liked it too! :D
