'And the Bead Goes On...' 17-23 Feb

2013 - Week 8 Daily Beads

Playing about with dimensions and using some of the more glistening beads. For the first few, I used glass Mill Hill beads I have had from Crazy Quilting days. I have no idea if some of the other beads I have are glass or not, but I am not fussed about what they are made of if they suit the purpose!

Getting a bit over the top on the clusters.

no.53

Believe it or not, this is reigned in a bit.

no.54


The last 3 haven't got the felt backing yet due to all the extra activity around here. But that is allowed! Will do before the end of Feb. Probably sooner rather than later.

I may try something slightly unusual with the beads next week. It will depend on how it develops on Sunday's badge.
Nearly March!

They look like aerial views of people gathered together in groups. I love them.

Thanks Irene,
It is good to hear what someone else thinks of them.

I have done Sunday's and it is Not exactly what I had in mind. I thought I would do something like the cage for a cabuchon or stone. It stands up and looks like a playpen instead.

Having another go today. I may as well learn how to do it!

I love these, too! Especially after having seen them in person.
