In Monday's random thoughts, I mentioned I wanted to make a giant transparent purple hollow bead with a big hole (or something to that effect). I didn't get much beading time this week, but I did get just enough to experiment with what I was day dreaming about. And it ended up being one of those times where I truly surprised myself at the torch. Because, holy crow, I did it!! I had an idea, sat down, tried it, and it freaking worked!! Sure, you might be thinking "Kerry, everything you do works", but no, it doesn't always and these, in my opinion, are really hard to make. I am feeling so proud of these.
Okay, so, I am calling this style "Tire" beads. They remind me of inner tubes you float around a lake on some lazy summer day. You know, the kind where your butt gets stuck in the middle, lol. After I shot that little video yesterday, I spent some time working up this necklace with a few of those tires. It is called, obviously, "Rotating Tires". It is so so fun!! I love it.
