This is a project that has been in the works for a while. I have a small back story (but by all means skip it if you are tired of my babble ;) ) You all know that I am in need of a 12 step program for t-shirt buying right? so I was wandering through Walmart and I saw a shirt (no way, right) and I did not own this color (notice I said did not, because you know I do now) When I got it home I went right to my bead stash and found that in my haste to buy all the beads I could (without any projects in mind) I had a perfect match in 15/0's. I had also purchases some hammered rings at the same time and.......my first mixed media project was born! I took elements of other designs and my secret love of chain maille and went to work!
Now part of the reason it took a while is first I ran out of beads (but my sweet hubby liked the bracelet so it was Artbeads to the rescue!) Then let's face it I have Crafting ADD and started a few others while waiting. Did you also know that 15/0's can drive yours eyes buggy?
Well TA DA!!
I did use a new stitch I think at this point I have mastered and have seen beaded rings in many other designs but I think my interpretation is pretty unique, How bout you?
Also here is a pic of the spark I had from all the turquoise and orange projects. I only had enough of the turquoise beads for 3 and inside are grommets that I found at Home Depot (gotta love a hardware store) I am not sure what to put it with so it will probably sit for a while but I wanted to get any opinions that you have to offer.
Well, we are off to Playground so I will check in later!
