Amulet Inchie

This last week has been a doozie!  Missed 2.5 days of work due to the weather.  Slid in the ice and got stuck in a ditch!  Add to that we lost power due to a tree falling on an icy power line!!!  Now we start this week with weather in the 60's!  Oh yea and a flooded yard, lol. 

What better way to start the weekend then by playing with my beads.  I was also drooling looking at beads online that I really, really want to buy and play with.  Then looked at my beading magazines.  (Along with more drooling!).  Ending the night by making my inchie. 

Here it is, the theme is Amulet.   My first thought was to make a small amulet bag, but I went with a crystal amulet hanging off of a gold necklace against a black background.  I used 3 colors of 11/0 Delicas.  My most favorite seed beads. 

I also took the picture with a ruler, so that you can see that it is a true inchie.  I also covered last weeks inchie with a napkin.  I decided to start the year off by attaching my inchies all together in one line, like I did last year.  Funny, it only took me 2 years to figure that out. 

Don't forget to fly by Every Inchie Monday to check out all the awesome artwork by all of the great artists.  Make sure you check it out on Monday when everyone posts :)  and thanks so much for stopping by and checking out the nest. 

Have a blessed and warm weekend.
