I used one of the sheets of fabric paper that I showed you in my previous post, to create more beads to finish off a set of jewelry for a good friend. Last Christmas for a gift exchange, I wrapped up one of my bracelets. My new friend and soon to be Watercolor Instructor picked my name for the exchange. Two weeks ago she asked me to create a set of earrings and a necklace to go along with her bracelet. She said that she wears her bracelet all of the time, gets lots of complements and wanted to know if I could complete the set for her.
The turquoise, green, copper piece that you see immediately to the left is what I used to create the beads for the new earrings and necklace.
Here is a shot of the original bracelet with the new earrings. I used turquoise beads from Pakistan below each fabric/paper bead (that had been wrapped with green fibers before glazing) and then placed a handmade recycled glass bead from Tanzania and two colored glass beads on top.
Here is the completed set minus a part of the toggle. I think that Ariel will be quite pleased with how these pieces turned out! Now I have aquite a bit of left over Fabric/paper in this colorway to create more beads for different projects.
