| This is one of my first
and if the scan weren't so bad,
maybe you could see why I'm so excited.
The bottle is 5" in height, beaded in gold ,
root beer, purple iris and lavender seed beads
and bugles, embellished with amethyst chips.
The cork topper is a spool
beaded in tubular peyote.
All the recently (imperfectly) acquired techniques
are thanks to cyber acquired beading friends,
who share so willingly of their
knowledge and encouragment.
Judith Giffin at Beadline Studios , taught me about coral branch fringe,
Beverly Herman at No Easy Beads
taught me how to play around with freeform peyote.
Marylyn Letson and the great Mare's Bead Cave bunch,
Rosalie Harrison, Diane Ciolek, Lynn and Shannon ,
shared more than they'll ever know.
|This was my first officially
off loom beading project and I was bursting
at the seams with pride and joy.
(For some of us, it doesn't take too much),
I made this at a gathering of beaders
in Memphis while attending "Mare's Bead Cave".
The stamp is from a kit of Beverly Herman's.
Beverly can not be blamed for the color selection
,however, as the bead selection was my own.
Thanks for visiting.
And Ya'll come back soon.
