A Saturday morning wading through the crazy Christmas shoppers in the Sydney heat and an afternoon of beading with my observers, cat buddies Sasha and Max. The beading started well, made these 2 pairs of earrings, but it went downhill from there - sometimes you make a piece and it can look good in the "flesh" but if it just doesn't photograph well, it aint going to sell....so apart it comes! This was the case with a bracelet. What is great about beading, unlike sewing, is that you can start again without (too...) much pain and wastage.
I will head back to more adventurous creations soon. The earrings were my beady fix for the day.
I keep making very simple earrings with Jenn of blueseraraphim's wonderful beads - the latest to arrive in the mail look like clouds or clots of cream with minty dots - they are really unusual and so sweet - all they needed was to be paired with some tiny Swarovski pearls. The second pair have a wild safari look pattern encased bead.
