It has been so exciting seeing what everyone has created so far, so I am keeping it short and sweet.
My pieces are based on some really cool Indonesian Manik Manik glasswork beads. Andrew and William have some really cool strands of these for sale at Allegory Gallery and I have had a really good time using them in my Monday Basic Beading classes.
This is my first piece. I couldn't get a great shot of the Manik bead in the middle, but it is REALLY cool! The white beads are a frosted glass and they are really heavy, but I am in LoVe with this necklace!
My second piece is based on this 'crazy little pill' bead which is also Manik Manik. I need to find a clasp that is dainty, as the blue and pink seed beads are small, as are the tiny jump rings that connect the looped wire.
And if you think you have seen those hearts before, you have! They were Andrew Thornton originals for a bead kit last year! Lucky me, right!?!?!?!
I am still busy working away at it (the muffin tine challenge) and in my spare time (ha ha- I need a clone) I am chopping away at my beading to-do list! (See my previous post about all the challenges we are working on this month!!!)
Ok, so that's it for me! See you all soon!
My next project will debut on the 22nd and it will be my piece for the SJ Designs Honey Do challenge.
I have my piece complete, and cannot wait to show it off!!!!
Spoiler alert: I used some funky beads!
Be well my friends!!!!
