Sparkling Blossom

This is a Round Robin doll.  6 beaders (including myself) worked on this doll which had a "Flower Child" theme.  I identified with the theme having grown up in the Flower Child era.  I beaded her bell bottoms.  Isn't she groovy??

Slinky SuperDuo rope with bubbly center

Ok, I've jumped on the odd shaped bead bandwagon after resisting for a bit.  Superduos, 2 hole lentils and seed beads are used in this pattern by Eileen Barker.  Contact for a kit.  I like the strong magnet and safety chain!  I lost a bangle because it didn't have a chain.

Raku donut pendant

The raku donut was made by local artist, Mak.  I used the center to present some crystals and chain with glass leaves.  The bail is done in brick stitch.

Lady Mary Bracelet on drugs

The same bracelet as below only larger.  The center row has different accent beads.  Thank you Kathi!

Lady Mary bracelet

This pattern was created by Kathy Hofferth.  I learned the method at a bead retreat.  Pretty!
