Bead Table Wednesday

Currently on my Bead Table:

 Bronzite and Kyanite gemstones

 Pendant from the CBC destash event!

I started to try a new technique; using waxed linen string instead of the typical beading wire. An overhand knot is tied between each bead. Lorelei Eurto uses this style a lot in her designs and has even made a tutorial video for us!

Have you tried this technique? How did you like it?

Fall is here

Today was the first day of fall and it was perfect cool weather with lots of bright sunshine. Inspired by the fall season, I created this necklace and earring set.

The pendant is a ceramic leaf from Michaels
A handmade lampwork acorn
Faceted Smoky Quartz
Horn rounds
Czech glass beads
Silver and antiqued Copper wire

Summer should get a speeding ticket

  Flip flops!

Harkness Memorial Park

Waterford Beach
Buttonwoods Farm, Sunflower fields

Sunset over Groton

 Wild blueberry picking!

I'm sad to see summer go, but can't wait for pumpkins and beautiful leaves!  I've even pulled out some beads in colors and tones that remind me of Fall.
