Beaded necklace

Marcia Kmack of Cave Creek Glassworks gave away some of her lampwork beads as presents. I made a Dutch Spiral necklace and attached her lovely bead to it.

Fabric ATCs

Here are two fabric ATCs I made for a red, black and white trade. The center incorporates threads.

Beaded bracelet

Several of the Beadniks recently attended a Cynthia Rutledge workshop featuring a pattern entitled "Tibetan bangle". This is the fruit of the labor which took 6 days to complete. Nine little squares of brick stitch hide a faceted amethyst inside. Cynthia is an awesome instructor.

Altered Tins

A few of us recently attended an "Alter Your Reality" workshop. I created two pieces using rusted Altoids tins. One is a Mona Lisa theme and the other is a buddha theme. What fun!

Beady People

These beady people feature foil cabochons as the body. Each has a double sided face with arms and legs of beads. Perfect for hanging on the bead bag or key chain!
