Between sweeping, dusting, moving things, and painting I was able to do some beadwork first off is for Every Inchie Monday whose theme this week is Towel. For this one I thought about those beautiful embroidered towels that people like to display in bathrooms never meaning to be used. My Mom had some of those. You can not imagine how hard it always was for me to not use them. Lets just say that I NEVER did, ;) LOL Just don't tell her. My inchie this week is a towel on a towel bar.
For this inchie I used 4 colors of delicas. I do love the little heart on the towel. I still say though if I saw this in your bathroom then I would still use it, BWAHHH!
Also this week I entered 3 pieces in a competition over at Sarcastic Beads and Yarn bead challenge. The winner in this challenge will get a $250 package of beads! OH MY GOSH!!!! Second Runner up will get a $50 gift certificate as well. I am hoping to make a few more pieces for this competition. I urge you to check it out and enter. It is a great competition, run by a great lady. Check out my pieces.
The first 2 are a pattern called Double Tile Bangle by Chloe Menage . For these 2 patterns I used 2 colors of CzechMates Quadratiles and 3 colors of CzechMates Tiles.
This is the second pattern I worked on called Winter Flower Pendant by Nichole Starman. It uses a whole bunch of different types of beads and like the title says it is a pendant that I turned into a bracelet. The top picture is the bottom of the pattern showing off the beads that I inserted to hold he shape of the flower. The bottom picture is what it looks like from the top. I alternated the "leaves" of the flowers for effect. This pattern has 11/0's, 15/0's 3mm fire polish beads and 2 different colors of Chechmates triangles. I then added the peachy 12mm beads inside of the flower for shape. Then closed it with a magnetic clasp.
Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to fly on over to check out EIM. Also don't forget to check out the 2x2x2 bi-monthly challenge, it is so much fun and, like EIM it is a great way to stretch your creative muscle.
