I'm waving "Hi" and a few other things along the way

Hiya everyone, it is Monday again and that means Every Inchie Monday time!  But I also have a few new items and some great news this week also.

This week over at Every Inchie Monday the theme is Wave.  I wanted to go with the classic Japanese Wave painting but I was not able to get that into an inch of beads.  So I went with a wave pattern.  I used 2 colors of Delicas one opaque and one matte to give it some extra depth.  What do you think?

Also you all might remember a few weeks ago I posted the picture of my bead art that was entered into a Spring/Summer competition on the Beadwork Mentoring Facebook page. Here it is again if you missed it the first time.

 I ended up getting an Honorable Mention!  How cool is that! I was super excited about that.  There was so many great entries, so I was happy to even be considered.

Also this week I decided to make a lighter cover for my craft lighter and I used a pattern that I designed for a twinchie from before I started doing them (and will be beading up soon).  I really love the colors of the pattern.  It is a take on one of Georgia O'Keeffe's paintings

Isn't it pretty?  I love it.  I did take a picture of the other side but for some reason it did not come out very big lol.  But just imagine the other side looking like the first side lol. 

Also this week I made a bracelet from the July 2015 Beadwork Magazine, entitled Oh so Charming.  I used "O" beads, and 8/0 bronze beads, and used a 12mm sea glass bead for the clasp.  Check it out.

I really love it, it feels great on my arm and I am going to make another one when I can find the time.  lol

Well that is all I have for this week.  I hope that I can have as much next week.  Well, we will see.  Don't forget to fly on over to EIM and check out the waves, lol.
