While I put the finishing touches on my bead-embroidered fire truck, I thought this would be a good time to show you the pieces of beadwork that I’ve recently acquired from fellow beaders.
The first piece is a bead-crocheted bracelet that was created by Mary. It was one of her giveaway items, and to my surprise, I was the winner! This beautiful blue bracelet just arrived in my mailbox yesterday. Mary also included a note in which she said stated that this was an imperfect item because a couple of the beads turned… Well, it looks perfect to me! I’ve never even tried bead-crochet yet, so I am in awe! I can’t wait to show this off. Thank you so much, Mary:)
The second piece is a 2-drop peyote stitched vessel that measures just 4cm tall. It is made with size 13 seed beads. This was created by Beadbabe, and when I saw it, I just had to add it to my collection. I love its retro design, and I’m hoping that it will inspire me to try creating my own little beaded vessel sometime. Be sure to stop by her blog and check out her wonderful creations. Thanks again, Beadbabe=:)
The third piece is a bracelet that was created by Bev. It is called ‘Bumps in the Road’, and everytime I wear it, someone notices it. I love its metallic copper tones, as well as its unique design. Be sure to stop by Bev’s website, No Easy Beads. She creates some stunning jewelry; my favourites are the bracelets. Thanks again, Bev. You are very kind=:)
And, some of you may have seen this one already, but this was the bead-embroidered pin that I received in Sassy Art Goddess‘s 2nd Annual Beaded Face Brooch Swap. The name of this piece is Maddy, and it measures approx. 2″ wide x 2.5″ tall. This little treasure was created by Patti, and I love it. It looks perfect on my denim jacket:)
It looks like I’m starting a nice little collection of beadwork for myself. Do you own any beadwork/art created by friends that you’d like to show off??
