Good Morning 🌞 & happy Friday!! How is everyone doing lately?!?! I hope your day is FULL of sunshine and SMILES!! Life is good!! This week, there are a lot updates and news going on, on my pages. I have 3 New listings , 2 WIP’s this week, some more finished bead-alongs, and the re-visits of the past kits that are available to share with you all. A lot of things to share…so let’s get going and create that sunshine and smiles through our creativity😃.
Today I want to start with the WIP’s for this week! To start off the week, I picked back up the WIP from Friday of last week(the SUMMER bracelet bead-along) on Monday. I started the day off with 110 rows and 1,980 beads !! I was hoping to finish it on Monday but I was only able to get to row 150 with 2,700 beads by the end of the day…but came back Tuesday morning with very little left to finish and started the day off with 160 rows & 2,880 beads!! By early afternoon I had it done!! After finishing this WIP it was time to take out my next WIP😁. I have to say, this SUMMER WIP was a FUN & Simple one!!
Before talking about the next WIP for this week, let me show off one of the new listings😉. Let’s take a look at the ‘Pressed Flowers(Pink, Blue, Green)’ Beadwoven Necklace first. This cab was a small cab to bezel-about the size of a quarter!! It was a fun and quick project that I finished the previous week but wasn’t able to list it last week. The colors I decided to go with this bezel, I ended up pulling from colors of the actual pressed flowers in pink, blue, and green. I did a simple peyote bezel for cab, not using any glue, and then did a simple twist in herringbone stitch for the rope using same colors and to pull everything together, I added silver plated findings. The end results is a pretty and vibrant floral necklace…perfect to wear for the summertime but can be worn anytime 😉.
Okay, now back to the WIP’s for the week!! Tuesday afternoon I started taking out and getting ready for a HUGE project!! There will be 5 main stones to bezel…maybe will have more later on…let’s see where the creativity takes me😃. Of the 5 stones, I decided to start with the red one first…for this project I decided to do something a little differently and use white beads in both 11/0’s & 15/0’s to bezel all the stones and will be the main theme of this necklace! I was able to finish the bezel for the red stone by Wednesday morning then started the bezel on the dark blue stone. By Thursday afternoon I had that stone completely bezeled as well and moved right on to the light blue/teal stone. Thursday evening I was able to go back and work on that light blue one and by this morning I had that stone bezeled as well😁. Now today, I will be spending the day bezeling the purple stone….3/5 stones done and 2 more to go…REMEMBER, that you can check out my Facebook Fan Page, Google+ Page, or my Instagram Page throughout the day to watch updates and working photos!
Next up, another listing!! This listing is from on of my bead-alongs I did with my K~Max Klub group😃. It is called ‘Baby Blocks Quilt’ Beadwoven Bracelet. This is a traditional baby block quilt pattern and would be great to add to any outfit in any season!! It was done in single drop peyote in light/dark complimenting colors to give it a 3D look. Just lovely!!
Time for some updates from the K~Max Klub!! Members have been working and creating lovely bracelets and purses from bead-alongs from the past month😃. As they are finishing up or showing their creations, I am posting them here to share with all of you to help inspire all those who might need some inspiration 😁. This week so far I have some pictures of finished purse bead-along & Summer bracelet bead-along to share. It’s truly amazing & inspiring to see so many different color combos and finishing touches that everyone adds to their work to make it each their own!! Here are this weeks updated bead-along photos!! I’ll post more as they come in for next week😃
Before I move along to the next listing, I wanted to take the time to put a few video tutorial links up here in case some of you missed them before. I have a tutorial for how to put a bar clasp on your finished peyote bracelet and I also have another tutorial on how to do the special turn for ODD count peyote😃.
