Bad blogger. That is me. I can not believe it has been so long since I have blogged. Sometimes life just gets in the way of my doing the things that I enjoy. Beading is truly the passion in my life. I want others to feel that joy and I relish passing on any information about beading to others. Most of the jewelry that I have been designing has been for challenges and I can't show it until the appropriate dates. I did make one set for a friend of my son's but I forgot to take pics before it left. The necklace shown above is one that I made at Bead Retreat. Doris Coghill showed us how to do three bead netting with the new 2 hole beads. It worked up fast and was fun. The straps are super duo's and seed beads and the center is 2hole triangles and seeds in the opposite color of the straps. Lentils would also work. If you have been reading my blog for very long you would know that blue and especially the aqua shade are the color that I use most frequently. I guess I must be in my purple phase right now as I find myself picking shades of purple much more often now.
