Found Time to Bead!



Fate smiled on me and I found time yesterday to bead! My mental state has been restored.
I wanted to do something totally new to me and something I could finish in a day. I was really turned on by Mandy's Beads for Brains:365 washer project. Actually, I am turned on by all of Mandy's projects. She is doing a new beading technique every day for a year. How's that for commitment?!? Mandy got her info for the washer project from Tamara at Vanishing Pearl. Isn't her work gorgeous?!
Here is my attempt at washers. I love the flow and fun and endless possibilities. I am going to cluster some together next. See how that goes. I used copper washers that I bought almost a year ago for other jewelry ideas. Can't wait to try the rubber washers when I get my hands on them. Very fun! Very easy! Very much want to make MORE!!!

Thanks for sharing the other links, too.

Nifty! I like the sunburst design. You better not make one in reds and oranges, as some of us are trying to save up for an overseas move...
