Okay, I know I'm supposed to be working on getting ready for CFCF, but I'm taking just a couple of minutes to share something else I've been working on. As you can tell, I enjoy 3-D work. My first ventures into jewelry making were bead-weaving oriented, and I've been wanting to do more with polymer-seed bead combinations. As is often the case, an idea starts in one place, then runs off in different directions....
This particular adventure started about 2 weeks ago. I began making some little floral 3-D earrings. The first set were on posts, and are a little more free-form than the sets of "garden" earrings I made in December.
Then I decided to make some hanging earrings, and embellish them with a bead - or maybe 2.
That changed rather quickly to trying little clusters of seeds with crystals or drops. These seed beaded pairs have just a little extra movement and sparkle. As you can see, I'm having fun!
Now I've moved on to trying some seed beading on a couple of pendants. Those will probably have to wait until I'm back from Baltimore to be completed. I'll post them here as soon as I get a chance. Just wanted to give you a "sneak peek" at these little pairs.
