Well what a fantastic set of public/bank holidays? Well done to Wendy for keeping up with Handmade Monday instead of lying in the sunshine! Well done as well to everyone else, who has ignored holidays, children home from school holidays, housework and all the beckoning craft fairs to contribute this week.
This week I have been fiddling with these beads in the sunshine. Forget the studio, I sat at the picnic table and cursed every time I dropped the beads though a slat!
batch of earrings. Each bead is crimped on to tiger tail wire and I have left the end exposed to create the impression of the stamen extending from the flower.
I have yet to decide how the necklace will look, but the bracelet will probably take the form of a kind of charm bracelet, with flower beads hanging off it.
