|Latest bead stash on my design table|
If you saw my blog yesterday you know I have a pile of beads on my table from Znetshows, Spring Surprise for which I am busy preparing. I decided to take just 4 of the beads from this stash and make a beach themed starfish bracelet. The oval seafoam green sea glass beads and oval blue sea glass beads on the far right side of my stash are used in this bracelet. These beads have no holes in them so I had to do some real thinking about what to do with them. I had the ceramic cuff made by Marti's Buttons n beads on Etsy and I knew the colors were perfect for it. I also had some denim Irish waxed linen thread that I got from White Clover Kiln . I tried to use the ovals horizontally and vertically with 2 strands. It wasn't until I used 4 strands that I has able to keep the beads in place. It was a real stroke of luck that I had the white beads on hand because they really helped the design and the color worked.
