For those of you who don’t know what Inchies are, they are 1″ square works of art made for collecting and trading. I love the idea, but I really want my inchies to have another purpose, so I added eyepins to them. Now, they can be connected and strung with other beads to make a unique piece of jewelry! Or, add a split ring and wear one as a pendant! Inchies could also be used as fiber art embellishments or made into magnets, tiny pins, buttons, or even drawer pulls! They can also be displayed just as they are… 😀
Of course, I can’t make anything simple, so my inchies are completely beaded! I made them by stitching lampwork beads and seed beads to felt. The bumblebee & flower lampwork beads have been in my collection for quite a number of years now, and unfortunately I cannot remember who made them. I purchased them as a set, so I thought it only right to keep them as a set in my finished works. They are cute and whimsical, and would make great components for a beaded bracelet!
