It has been raining cats & dogs in Boston all weekend, and it is still raining! This kind of weather is pretty depressing, but at the same time, I do believe that means that Spring is near! So, to help lift my own spirits a bit, I worked on a Spring jewelry design using glass beads I received from Artbeads.com! :)
I ordered some tiny Czech glass flowers, as well as an Antique Silver-Plated Brass Round Frame Patera Bracelet and some Lacy’s Stiff Stuff. The frame bracelets are meant for embellishing with tiny pictures, beads, and papers using some type of resin, but I never seem to use things for what they are originally intended.
First, I cut out 5 circles of Lacy’s Stiff Stuff. Then, I began stitching on my tiny flowers and green seed beads using a basic bead embroidery technique. Before long, I beaded the entire circle. It looks like a tiny flower garden! :)
I repeated this process 4 more times, then I carefully glued each piece of beadwork into their flower beds using E-6000 glue. After it cures, this piece will be a beautiful accessory which is sure to be noticed wherever it is worn! I hope my design inspires you to make your own Tiny Beaded Flowerbed Bracelet! :)
