Almost two years ago I asked to be added to the wait list of bead makers featured in Beadwork magazine's "The Challenge". My time has finally come!! Check out the latest issue (Aug/Sept) on news stands to see SEVEN designs created by FOUR different designers using the beads above.
I made these beads back in February. In fact, I mailed them out on my birthday. I went with what I thought would be a different kind of summery beach combination of colors. I used ink blue, lavender, denim blue, turquoise, and swirled it all up with stormy gray. I was very into stripes and dots. I think the stripes are very "navy-ish" and the dots are very "under the sea". It works!
And the projects! They turned out so cool!! They all use seed beads, something I very very rarely see my beads paired with. They really are all too cool to pick a favorite.
