Joyful Rainbow

 Hi Everyone!  

The colorful summer issue of Beadwork magazine just arrived in my mailbox, and I had to share!  

The Fast and Fabulous section is themed Rainbow Brights, and filled with fun designs for your summer wear.

Joyful Rainbow Necklace in Beadwork Summer 2021

Beadwork Summer 2021

Beadwork magazine will now be published four times a year, so get your copy now at Interweave.

Here's my photo of the necklace spread out so you can see the hanging strands.  This was a lot of fun to make.  I love stringing on waxed cord and using the colorful howlite beads.  It feels like a fiesta!

I'm looking forward to creating a pair of earrings to go with this - maybe some butterflies and tassels.

Happy Beading!

Lake House Wall Hanging

 Hi folks!

Here's a new design of mine published by Herrschners in their plastic canvas kit line.  This is a wall hanging with Lake House spelled out in camping and lake motifs.  It was a lot of fun to create because it was kind of like a rebus puzzle, and I love all kinds of puzzles!  I had to figure out motifs to fit each letter to spell out Lake House. Now I want to head to a camp site in the woods with a lake or a stream and some roasted marshmallows over a campfire! Can't wait for summer!
