Here is the mix I put together for the Bead Soup Blog Party.
The focal bead is a self supporting beaded star made with size 11 delicas and size 15 seed beads. Along with a matching clasp. The star was inspired by Jean Power’s technique of joining distorted squares. I added the bail so the star can be hung on a rope or chain.
Around the star are the co-ordinating delicas, seed beads and Swarovski crystals.
This package went off to Shirley Moore. Go and see her blog – Beads and Bread. She is sending me a package of Bead Soup in exchange.
Here is a peyote cuff she made – a Rainfall of Color.
Here we go with the 7th Bead Soup Blog Party led by Lori Anderson. I’ve not done this before so am rather looking forward to joining in. Apparently over 500 beaders have signed up.
Soon we will receive the info on our allocated partner. I am feverishly making a beaded pendant and clasp as I am a seed beader. Will eventually post photos of the beads I receive in exchange. Probably go into a fugue for a while and then come up with a design for the goodies I get.
