My art room is a total mess!!! I am going from one thing to another but I wanted to post "some" of the things I have finished. I made these three bracelets. Two of them have magnet closures and the bright pink one is closed with an antique button. These are soooo comfortable to wear with jeans or even dressy. (At my age, I seem to be going more and more toward comfort! )
A fellow beader, Betty, invited me over to her lovely home to bead together. What a treasure trove of beads! We had such a good time going through all of her Mothers and Grandmothers vintage jewelry. We came up with a couple of updated looks for her to add a couple of pieces together. You know I was "in my element". We didn't get much beading done but I enjoyed it so much. Thanks, Betty, for being such a good host!!!
I also made a couple dozen flowers from organza fabric and miscellaneous beads. The hot pink/orange flowers were made from the wrinkled fabric and it burns so cool. The edges are very irregular while the softer fabrics burn in a curve which makes a natural "petal". I have added pin clips/hair clips/barrettes to each one. They are going to go to our women's retreat at church for give aways. I LOVE creating! I do believe that God has done a much better job in designing our "real" flowers but when those are not around after their season then these flowers are good reminders of what is to come.
Now I will make two posts for you to see some of the "paper" work that I have been doing. Please check it out!
Thank you so much for "stopping by". You are appreciated immensely!!! Sharon
