Blissful Beading


This week, cross stitch took a back seat to a new interest. My dining room table has turned into a beader's atelier! Much as I would have loved to, I didn't go back to the Craft Fair last week, I went to my local Spotlight & melted Paul's credit card buying beads.

How did I get into this situation? I found a beautiful project that I wanted to make for a Christmas gift (you'll have to wait for pictures of the finished work until a later date). Being a beading novice, I had to make a prototype just in case I was a total disaster at this beading gig. Needless to say, yes, I am able to slide beads onto wire & crimp the whole lot closed. Consequently, youngest princess, who was encouraging my endeavours, suggested other options for similar Christmas projects. I'm on roll!

I can't show you a whole lot of work because I don't want to ruin the element of surprise for gift recipients, but here's the prototype...

The necklace is so pretty! My sister is really into beading. It's not really my cup of tea. I'm hoping I get something pretty from my sister this Christmas. Have fun!
