Lace Love

The February 2020 issue of Bead & Button magazine had a gorgeous pattern called simply Bead Lace Bracelet. Here is my version of this beautiful bracelet:

I also completed a new Daydreamer Necklace set:

Two different friends gifted me beads recently. One gave me lampwork beads from her personal stash, the other Italian beads from a trip. This week I discovered that they look beautiful together:

What fun did YOU have this week?

Starstruck Revisited

This week I made a second version of the Starstruck Necklace, and added flowers instead of crystals. I started by creating my own mix of 8/o beads, to achieve a specific color effect. I made matching earrings too, and love how the look all came together.

I also designed a new bracelet using SuperDuos, crystals and 3mm bugles. A light and airy piece, it will be perfect for summer evenings!

Last week’s projects were such a hit, that I have adjusted my class schedule to add them in right away. If you are in CT, come join us for Beady Fun!

Beading for Spring…

I have been working on 2 projects this week; one that is pure fun, and one that is pure Spring!

A fringed bracelet adds drama to any outfit; this one includes more than a dozen shades of gold, silver and copper, making it a great choice with any outfit.

My new Spring has Sprung bracelet brings together seed beads, pearls, Czech glass and netting to create a garden in bloom. Real life flowers aren’t far away; for now enjoy this.

Think sunshine and warmth!

Starstruck Necklace

I’ll be teaching a new class beginning this week – the Starstruck Necklace, designed by Cathy Andrews. Here’s a picture of my version:

I will also offer 2 alternate classes; the easy memory wire cuff, or an old pattern, the Blossom Bracelet.

If you are in the area, come on in and take a class! I have fully restocked all colors of 3mm and 4mm crystal bicones, as well as lots of new colors in 2-hole bars. And have you seen the mobile Kumihimo – Czech Glass – Stamping center?

How is your creativity blooming today?
