I haven't received my copy yet, but apparently my entry for Beadwork's The Challenge was published!! Woot woot!! (Thank you Christine for the heads up!!)
After spending the last hour looking through my archived photos, I'm shocked to see I didn't take any pictures of the package of beads when they were delivered back in March. But suffice it to say, I was delighted with the beads and the colors. The package came from A Grain of Sand Beads and had some of my favorite shades of pink, a fantastic vintage looking cab, some matte pearls, and more!! I also realized that I didn't take many photos of the finished product either. Here are a couple:
Bead-It-Forward project! I may have, ahem, gotten carried away playing with different color palettes, but once I got started it was hard to stop. These are done in a two-drop peyote stitch. I can't wait to bead a few up and see how they look! (It should be noted that I didn't even include ALL the patterns I made!!hahah!!) I hope they inspire some of you to give it a try! I'm planning to do a video tutorial on this in the coming weeks.
