Hello everyone and thanks for stopping by. This week I was really motivated to do some bead work. Normally I am really too tired and mentally worn out from work to do too much more than my inchie each week. Which is super sucky! Why can't I win the lottery so I can devote my time to my bead work??? Oh well, until that day I will just keep trying to enjoy the few moments of beading that I can get to get.
This week over at Every Inchie Monday the theme is Hotel. I think the last time I stayed in a hotel was back in 2001. So it has been forever. I actually got a job as a housekeeper at a hotel once. I worked for 1 week and then the hotel closed its doors! Why hire me if you are shutting the doors? Oh well. LOL
For my inchie I decided to go with the icon theme again. I have used it a few times when there is no creative flow coming to mind. In my inchie I used 2 colors of Delicas. Some of my most used colors, Opaque black and white. I was also real happy that I was able to write the theme on my inchie as well.
As you can see the word HoTeL is on there. Sadly it had to be wrote that way so that I could add it to the inchie. Also on this inchie is a bed with a person laying on it. It is a match of the Icon that you can see on Highways letting you know there are hotels coming up. Hope you like it.
Also this week I mentioned that I had time to do some more beadwork. I decided to make a necklace using some sea glass that I have had for some time. To it I added some Metallic AB 11/0 seed beads. I am still debating on adding more seed beads to the sea glass but for ow this is how it looks.
Here is a close up of the necklace.
Also this week I wanted to finish a Facebook challenge from one of my bead groups. You can check it out here. Also you can join in this month or for the next month if you would like. Here is the bracelet that I made for the challenge.
Here is a close-up of the beads.
In this bracelet I used 15/0 frosted seed beads, Blue 3mm bicones, grey silky 2-hole beads and silver/black 2-hole rulla beads. The clasp is a silver Mag-Lock magnetic clasp. I really love this bracelet and how it feels on my wrist.
I hope that this week I will get more time to bead. I still need to get back to the Christmas ornaments. Also there are some great challenges on the Facebook groups that I am in and I would love to have the time to work on them. I hope that you all have a blessed and creative week, and don't forget to fly on over to EIM and check out the great hotels over there!
