Cats in Space

Okay this has nothing to do with beads, I just thought it was hilarious!

Polymer Clay for Fun

My first polymer clay beads made into bracelets with wood beads and spacers. These are actually the first I've made on my own - I've made better in the two classes I've taken LOL.

I'm hoping to make this into a class for kids at Bead Junction- hence the bright colours and large sizes.

Chinese Lantern Necklace

After I made this necklace, I thought it looked like Chinese lanterns - maybe I was inspired by the Chinese Lantern Festival at Ontario Place even though I haven't seen it yet! I used a hand dyed silk cord, felt and satin cord wrapped beads. I put the beads on headpins with 6/0's at the bottom and made the standard loops at the top. I threaded the loops onto the cord, and tyed a loose overhand knot to keep their spacing. Of course, all these items are available at the Bead Junction.
