While packing (again!), I found yet another forgotten bead stash (again!). This time, drops, leaves, and 'petals'. They didn't look like leaves to me, as they have this slight curve to them, but they did look like flower petals, so petals they'll be. :)
Here is a lovely little bouquet for your viewing pleasure. Great for the allergy sufferer who loves flowers, but can't stand their pollen, LOL! Also great for anyone who might have metal allergies. Also a fantastic way to accessorize your ensemble, without breaking the bank.
The black and white one on the tip of my pinkie there was custom made for my Mimi, and boy oh boy, did she ever love it!
We went out on the town today, and she proudly showed it off to anyone who'd ask.
My little Princess. :)
I also found a stash of size 6/0 triangle beads that I just did not know what to do with. I was going to try a reversible bracelet, 'cause they look so darn neat, but for some reason, just went with Ndebele instead. Still looks pretty good. Hubby thinks that this might make a nice band for a man, but I'm not sure that he'd actually wear it himself...
Perhaps if I played around with clasps and used something a bit more rugged looking... Or leather lacing. I don't know! I know girlie, not guy-y... ;)
So, that's what I've been up to. That, and I've found an avid student at the shop. Her name is Sarah, and she just came in one day, looking to learn, so I sat right there with her and taught her stringing. The next week was wire wrapping. And the following visit was Peyote. And the girl just wants to learn more, and more, and more. LOVE IT! It's done wonders for my recent lackluster efforts in the bead foray. I swear, I thought I was on my way to selling my beads off... I don't know where it came from, but it seems to have gone away now. And I hope it stays that way too...
Hope you're all enjoying a fantastic summer, and that you're wearing lots of sunscreen, 'cause I don't know about you, but I'm finding the sun incredibly hot nowadays. SPF 50, re-applied twice in as many hours, and I STILL got a sunburn... OUCH! :(
K. Back to the old beading table!
