Everybody else was back at work, so it was time for me to do some more creating.
Where to start?
I have so many ideas going round in my head, so many beads to use and a market this sunday!
I need to make necklaces and earrings and bracelets!
So I started small with some cute little czech glass beads I found just before Christmas.
Little chuck converse sneakers!
After rummaging through my bead boxes I found half strands and part strands of beads, not enough for a necklace, but how about a bracelet?
and instead of stringing in a repeating pattern, how about grouping them.
Desert Oasis Bracelet
Sand and Sea Bracelet
then because I always have many odd beads
inspired by the colours of the earth.
What to do with one sizeable chunk of yellow opal?
Exotic Journey Bracelet
combine it with pearls and Swarovski Crystal, and some Bali spacers.
If you had to go collect all these yourself, it would be an incredible exotic journey.
I wish I could go on that journey.
But for now I just have to do some more creating.
