Finished my necklace and earrings, from my previous post of the pinch beaded beads I learned at Bead Street week or so ago. I added a few more beaded beads, some Czech glass pearls and some new Czech shapes, and Ohhhh My, the finish on these brand new Czech glass beads is absolutely incredible. If I could afford all of the strings Eileen had, I would have purchased them!!! It's fun to have a new grouping of shapes. This necklace is really a beautiful piece, w/earrings to match. Yummers is all I can say on the meshing of the hues in varying shades of blue/grey/green/copper/gold and bronze.
|NOW FOR THE NEW DESIGN using the new Czech "O" Rings. A bracelet designed by Marcia Balonis, taught at Bead Street by Sandy Taylor. A different grouping of colors for me in that I really started out wanting to make something that would go with black. I started with the 4mm dark grey fire polish, had additional 3mm black fp on my beading pad, but then couldn't go through with it. I needed something to make the copper/silver/grey pop, so used more of a mustard 3mm. This is really fun - colors in person are really more unusual and blended than it shows here.|
