ABS – August Challenge

August 31, 2010

Yeah, I actually made it! Last minute. Or did I? I have no idea what the time limit is, exactly. But in any case, this is the first necklace I’ve completed in two months, which is its own reward. The picture is horrible, sorry, but I can’t do any better without daylight…


Even More Beads

August 30, 2010

Here we go. And don’t say I didn’t warn you!

More glass and more metal, but also gemstone and shell.

And I finally have an idea for the Monthly Challenge… if it works out, I’ll show you tomorrow!

Beads, Beads, Beads

August 29, 2010

I have been away from the Blog for quite a while… and I haven’t created anything new in all this time. Artist’s block or something, I don’t really know. However, I hope that I will be in the mood for creating once again, now that the weather gets worse. I’ll try to blog regularly as well, but I’ll start slow by showing off some (more or less) recent purchases. Everyone showing their Bead Fest loot made me really jealous – all I have to show are some plain store-bought beads I got when I spent my summer vacation in Cologne.

The colourful stuff: glass, ceramic, wood. The orange/blue ones were meant to be for the ABS Challenge two months ago… *sigh* I still don’t have anything for the current one either, and it’s only two days to go.

And the metal stuff. If you like looking at “Bead Porn”, check back tomorrow for the loot I bought in the next store!
