This is quite obvious on my bead table where you can find evidence of collage and soldering.
As well, I tried out new clasp and stringing techniques by using some suede cord, making a loop, and tying on a button for the clasp. It works great and looks pretty with the other natural shell elements to this necklace.
Lastly, I decided to make an uber-girlie piece with a polymer clay cupcake pendant I made a few months back. So, out came the pink and purple seed beads.
That's as far as I've gotten today because I'm hoping to get some shopping done before I head to Mobile to help with the nieces. I'm sure there's a ton more creativity happening on other Bead Tables this Wednesday!

In other news, I spent some time yesterday taking pictures and editing photos, but haven't quite gotten to writing up the descriptions. However, I wanted to make sure I put something 'new' in the shop. Sooooo, I re-listed an item that I loved which never sold. And, I even brought the price down some too.

In addition, this went on sale.

With it being the first of the month, I decided to change up the blog header. (You might even recognize that bracelet as my previous blog header picture.) With the onslaught of summer, I went with a beachy picture. I'd love to know how you like it!
Now I'm really craving the beach! Love the header ;) And all those soldered pendants...I haven't mastered soldering yet, I should work on it more, I suppose. Love your bead table and can't wait to see the finished creations!ReplyDelete
Ooo---LOVE the Naughty or Nice!!!ReplyDelete
I love your new blog header - it's very relaxing... makes me want to go to the beach! :)ReplyDelete
Christine- Thanks! I had a lot of fun creating that one.ReplyDelete
Bibi- That's exactly what I was going for, something a little more calm and summer-like. I'm glad it did what I needed it to!
Holly- (GAH, somehow I got my comments all out of order. . .figures!)ReplyDelete
I'm so glad to know you like the header (YAY!!)
I LOVE to solder. Pat taught me a few years back and I absolutely love to melt the metal. Definitely give it a chance, it's not as hard as it seems.
These are fantastic! I really want to learn soldering; your pieces look so fabulous, it makes me want to learn even moreso. :D Can't wait to see some of these finished. They are going to look so lovely. :)ReplyDelete
Jacinta- I'm so glad you like them. Right now I'm debating over whether to list the pendants by themselves or as a completed necklace/bracelet. I can't decide. I did list some pendants before to no avail, but these are a bit more simple. So they might be an option. Thinking, thinking. ..ReplyDelete
