For Carol

Still Seedbeading

Guess I needed someone to encourage me just a little. Thank you Carol for asking if I am still beading. I am indeed beading. I do not vary my work as much perhaps as I once did, but I still am plugging away.

This particular fringed bracelet "Tiger Tiger" spent a year before I added the fringe around the cabachon.  I never felt it was how I wanted it. I do now!

In the last year and a half or so I have created about 30 crystal and beaded rings. The center of most have a Swarovski rivoli. The rest is 4mm Swarovski bicones and seed beads in 11 and 15

The black and white flamingo bracelet is partially fringed on a peyote black base. The cabachon was a gift from Amy, my niece.  She knows that my whole house is decorated in flamingos and I love them. 

I will have to finish fringing the bracelet as the weight of the cab and fringe make the heavy part turn under and all that is seen is the plain bracelet with the snap closure

Thank you again Carol for getting me busy blogging.

I'm so glad you posted.

I have a friend that bought a fringy bracelet in a store. It is fringed on an elastic base and has stretched beyond usefulness. She gave it to me in case I wanted the beads. I immediately thought of the bracelets you made several years ago and searched them out.

I miss your posts..about your beading and other things going on with you. I told someone just the other day about when you posted a pic of an alligator laying at the edge of a pond on the golf course.

I know you do Facebook, but I don't. Thanks for the post. Your beading is still superb!

Happy Thanksgiving.
