Beaded Journal Page - May

A blue butterfly celebrates the month of May.

Beaded Art Doll - May

Meet Double Happiness. She celebrates Asian Pacific Am Hertiage week. I used Ndebele, netting and Oglala stitch for this creation. She truly lifts your spirits with her happy face.

Book Arts

Nothing could be better than a book with beads! A great addition to my collection.

Beaded bracelet

A labor of love. Braided strips form this lovely Maggie Meister creation. I tweaked it slightly.

Beaded Journal Page - April

I forgot to include last month's BJP for April. The butterfly is done in size 11 seed beads and some hex beads.

Beaded necklace

A beaded necklace and earring set I made for mom for Mother's Day. The necklace is done in spiral rope with a peyote bezel. The earrings mimic the necklace.

Book Arts

Buttonhole book binding. A cutout in the binding reveals the signatures. The stitching is on either side of the binding.
