This weekend has been a crafty one for me. Recently I saw a blog post by one of the Inchie Artist and decided that her post tied into this weeks inchie so well that I had to mention it. This week over at Every Inchie Monday the theme is Figure. My first thought was a woman's figure. I felt that this would be really hard for me to translate into an inchie. But I think I figured it out with this one. (at least I think I did). I tried to show off some cleavage on this lovely lady with 2 colors for the skin, but it didn't translate properly.
Well, of course I couldn't help but make my own superhero! I made sure she matched my figure inchie. Her superpowers are that she is "Faster than a runaway bead! More powerful than a bent needle! And she is able to find missing beads in a single try!" Check her out, I designed her to match the clothing of the inchie. LOL
Also this week I finished a triple spiral bracelet for the monthly challenge over at Seedbeadsters Facebook page. I used size 6/0 gray seed beads, 8/0 green seed beads and silver magatamas. I also added a big silver toggle clasp. I know the second picture doesn't show off the green beads as well as I wanted but I still like that this is a really chunky bracelet.
This weekend I also got an idea for a 3-strand necklace. I had a bunch of transparent shaped yellow-gold and blue beads, some big sized blue twisted beads with gold flakes in them, and some crystal 4mm round beads. I am not that great with just stringing beads. I never seem to get it to look copacetic to my liking. But, I like this necklace with one exception; I wished I had spaced the necklaces farther apart.
So what do you think? This week was a bit much but I did have a creative burst. Blame it on Spring being sprung on me! LOL
Anyways, don't forget to fly on over to EIM and check out all the great designs and have a blessed week.
