YAY! I have so been waiting for this reveal although I did only just finish part of it yesterday. Jeannie (this is a link directly to her website as I know you are going shoppin after you read this!)was so happy with our Club last month that she offered a set she had made for her January piece to the first responder. Guess what? Yep I replied nearly instantly for these gorgeous beauties!
|Minus the glass beads but as you will see I didn't need them!|
Oh yes I love them. It is so funny that you fall in love with a picture over the computer and sometimes they are no where near what you thought they were but in this case you guessed it, these beauties are beyond words. I thought I had a plan for them but when they arrived my direction was totally changed. I discovered something about my journey into this beading world. I can see a design in my head now. I new exactly were to take this necklace and frankly it is not too shabby at all.
Introducing Rockin Blossom!
I used a great tutorial I have used before by Nancy Dale of NEDbeads. I love this Trellis necklace for not only how it works up but how it wears. The rope is so soft and also a bit bolder but this is exactly what this necklace needed. For anyone who is not a seed beader I will tell you that it does take time but the results are mind blowing.
Now the bracelet well that was really hard for me. I had 2 of the accent beads left and I wanted to give them a proper compliment. I had seen these beaded beads in a magazine (I can't remember which one and since I have totally misplaced it......yeah, luckily I had made one bead before loosing it) I thought I could make them work with the beads. You all know I am not not not a stringer. This scares be because of the symmetry thing. I know what you are thinking I make the seeds work right? Well they work for me, string and wire? Not so much. So I finally finished the beads Thursday night and set to "weave" them together. Yep if I say that it works. Let me know what you think.
Being a part of this Club is amazing for me. Not only do I get my hands on some spectacular Art Beads which I totally covet. I get to meld them with my style and inspiration. Jeannie's beads are AWESOME and her great attention to detail gives each one a special personality.
Oh hey BTW I realized the other day that my blog was created to show you pairings as well but I totally have not been sharing those as I should so.............
I plan to make sure you can see where I get some of my inspiration from.
Now check out all the lovely members in this months challenge and send Jeannie some love for letting me be a part of this!
