arrived today! I am so pleased! I have plans for these!They are also called Mermaid Beads. They seem to glow from within, like labradorite!
I got some white ones this last week.They seem to be pressed glass with some sort of relective film trapped inside. Brilliant!
I’m reverse enginering a pen to make some tubes to use in tying barrel/sliding/adjustable knots. I saw a great barrel and sliding knot tutorial on Kellie’s Bead Boutique You Tube Channel. Now, to find a box cutter or hack saw!
I got three of my Czech glass cabichons set in my new gold plated bezels. I used Quick Hold by the makers of E6000.
It’s hard to capture how reflective they are. Two of them have a color shift:
This is my entry for the Chip Challenge on the Beady Bunch page. The Beady Bunch is an online beading group I belong to.
The chips are citrine, the pendant component is brass, and the chain and findings are gold-plated.
I’m getting lots of positive feedback from my beading buddies! Happy Dance!
Susan Thomas showed my work on The Circle on her show on JTV Extra today. She shows everyone’s work who submits, now, but it’s still an honor and a thrill. Today’s theme was Color Crush, and I shared one of my favorite yarns for kumihimo, “Copper Penny,” with a work in progress.
on my quilt square jewelry, but getting a lot done! I found some pendant trays that are square, so a few of my “quilt square” necklaces will actually be square!
Luckily, many of the Quilt Square Girls’ designs have elements that are round!
I am really happy with these. I hope the Quilt Square Girls will be. I’m anxious to order more blanks!
Somebody remind me!
I will piddle and fiddle and nip at something till I eventually ruin it. I have done enough to this little chakra bar pendant. The chain can wait till tomorrow. I’m walking away!
Well, maybe just turn it over so the beads are in the right order!
Here’re my latest frames from JTV. I am very pleased! I’ll have to pack them up for now, but someday…
