It has been awhile since i have posted as we have been experiencing Phone?Internet problems due to the cold: or so the phone company claims!!
Anyway, I have been staying busy! I have been working on several Altered Books for various Round Robins, scraping paint, beading necklaces for teaching samples and cleaning up after snow playclothes shedding children!!! You know: snow encrusted hats, mittens, boots and snow pants left in a soggy heap by the front door. But Oh, how I love kissing those snow chilled rosey red cheeks!!
On to the projects!!
This is a necklace that I have created for a class that I will be teaching at the end of the month at THe Whistle Stop Bead SHop , here in Stafford. This pattern is called a Dutch Spiral with Bugle Beads. It is actually a very simple stitch and it always makes a stunning piece! THese pictures do not do the piece justice. The Bugle beads are a shiney metallic purple color and the little Delica seed beads are a Matte finish green and purple raku. I ended the piece with Bali silver cones.
The necklace is now on the sample board to "Wow" everyone who walks by! Now if we can get some folks to sign up for the class, I will be a Happy Beader!!
