Well, here it is, the new bracelet I made yesterday with the cool Deepwood style beads. I love the colors and the little flowers turned out sweet. My favorite one is the transparent teal one. A couple years ago I did a lot of basket weaving and I had some really pointy super sharp shears. I pulled those snippers out of their dusty home and had a blast cutting hot glass. I can't tell you how cool it is to get a little area really hot then.... snip.... it is so cool! Who woulda thunk that you could cut molten glass with scissors? Really now, you can't cut cold glass with scissors, that's for sure!
I sent an email off to Fran at Deepwood to show her how the beads turned out. I didn't have any of her gorgeous silk cording to string them on so I just straight stung them. I used a loop of seed beads for the clasp. I think it turned out great but still looks too much like one of her designs so I think I will need to keep it for myself, bummer huh. I need to work out how I can use the technique but still keep my style in there. I know I will figure something out!
Another crazy day on my plate... I gotta get. I know I need to do the free beads drawing again. Don't worry, it'll get done by the end of the day! I'll let you know!
