Green Beading

No more environmentally friendly or unfriendly than usual, just green.

Literally. As in the colour.

First is the completed sample for the class I taught on Tuesday. I think it might be destined for my Etsy shop.
I just love this design, I think mostly because it's fun to do, not necessarily because it's gorgeous - I'm actually not certain one way or the other.

The students in the class seemed to enjoy it too - it's a tiny, fiddly thing, and it's hard to see what you're doing (you have to follow the instructions on faith apparently), and then suddenly, as the last step is completed, you can't help but squeal "Ohhh, it's so cuuuute!"

Or so I'm told.

And then I made Peg's earrings to match the necklace she bought a couple of weeks ago.

She asked for earrings that would match the chain of the necklace, and while I might have made earrings like this at some point, I'm glad she spurred me to do it sooner, because I really like the way they turned out.

I really like both the designs. I wish I could have read your entire article for Etsy Beadweavers, but as they put the photos right over the words, everything in the middle of the page was lost! Sigh..Aryd'ell
