Beadwork Dec 2020/Jan 2021

 Hi Everyone!

It's been awhile since I posted.  Helping out with online kindergarten with my granddaughter keeps me very busy!  I know there are lots of grandparents out there stepping up to help their families.  It is a pleasure for me to help my little granddaughter learn her sight words and numbers.  She is delightful.  She also has more energy than anyone I know (except maybe her little sister!).

A few months ago, I managed to create a couple of designs that were accepted into Beadwork magazine in their Dec20/Jan21 issue.  I got an advance copy, so I couldn't wait to show you.  

I just love the pendant on the cover.  It's a Vintaj piece with added beadwork stitched around it.  That and many wonderful designs are inside the magazine and it's well worth getting a copy.

Layered Leather Leaves (above) was so much fun to make!  It's in a boho style that's really quick and easy since it uses a die cutter and leaf die. 

 Another style that is a favorite of mine is the vintage look, and the necklace below with its dark brass, filigree and blend of moonstone and pearls fits that style.

There are five more lovely Fast and Fabulous designs for your making pleasure by designers you are sure to recognize and loads of stitched designs.

Happy Beading!
