My Newest Adventure!

So, I haven't been doing my normal crafty things lately.  I'm a little scared to saw my pallet and I need a different sewing needle to finish my hooded towel.  Boo. But my friend C showed me how to bead a few weeks ago!  And here are the things I've made from left to right are oldest to newest creations.
Pay no attention to the cup design.  It's the only thing I could think of that would show all of my earrings.  I really like my newest earrings on the right.  I scored these awesome shell beads from the thrift store.  Well worth my money.  The middle pair turned out well, but are a tad too long for my liking.  The thing not on the cup is called a "bead bomb".  It's a bunch of beads on wire, all woven in and out.  I plan to put it on a bracelet or necklace eventually with other trinkets/charms.  
This was a cool ring I made at my mom's in Minnesota.  Unfortunately, I left it in the locker at the temple, and they threw it away with the old lockers because they were getting new ones. :( Boo. Again. Oh well.

I don't know a whole lot about beading yet, but I have always wanted to do it! And now I am!  If you'd like me to share my tidbits of knowledge, I would be glad to!  What have you been crafting lately?


  1. Love the earrings! Now that tax season is (almost) over, I need to start a couple projects for our master bedroom (1) an upholstered headboard and (2) pillows. The pillows should be super easy, but I don't own a sewing machine so the logistics get a little more complicated.

  2. Ooo! Fun! I've seen lots of people do headboards. Let me know how it turns out! :)
