I also finished the monthly challenge over at the Seedbeadersters page, Netted Surround Bezel. I have these big beveled 1.5 inch plastic "crystal" beads. I love how big they look and wanted to have one as a pendant. So this is what I came up with.
I used 11/0 Purple Iris Czech glass seed beads, that I bought from eebeads. By the way, they are having a 60% off going out of business sale. Awesome prices! I really like how this came out. I have never been successful at making a nettted bezel before. The last one I made was too loose and the cabochon on the inside just kinda rolls around in it lol.
Also over at Every Inchie Monday the theme this week is Nail. In the past I used a nail head for an inchie so I decided to go to something that I am getting well versed in. Finger nail polish. My daughter loves, and I mean LOVES nail polish. Kinda like how I love beads!
So I see her painting her nails often. Which is something that I have never been good at. I am not really patient enough to paint my nails. But I am patient enough to bead two nail polish bottles!
For this inchie I used 5 colors of delicas. I love the blue one most, the color is really creamy, like nail polish should be. Hope you like it.
Don't forget to fly on over to EIM and check out all the great artwork and have a blessed and creative week.
