What I Did On My Summer Vacation...Part 1

I went out to the workshop just now to take a few photos of something I made this summer.  Gotta get some beads shown on this bead blog!

And here is what was there to greet me!  If anyone can identify it, let me know.  It looks enameled and has spikes.  Poisonous?!








Even though I was not blogging this summer, I was beading.  Here is one of the necklaces I  made this summer.  Green Girl Studios bead, tile beads, twin hole beads and good old fashioned size 8 seed beads.



More vacation pieces to come!

Hi Christine,
I have no idea what kind of spider that is, but it has beautiful colors. Your necklace is beautiful too!

I like the asymmetry in your necklace and the colors. I've been hoarding some Green Girl beads for a number of years now. I've been wondering what to start next so I think I'll go look at my stash and get inspired. ; )

Here's your spider:

Looking at your spidey pics reminds me that inspiration can truly come from anywhere, as long as we know how to look!

As for your spider .....it looks like a bead - LOL! got caught in an enameling session - ha! But I would likely have run out screaming .... truly hate them!

Good design on the necklace. I just bought a whole bunch of larger seed beads- they are versatile.

Oh boy! That is one creepy creature! I have never seen an enameled spider like that before. So special. Your necklace is gorgeous. What a unique design!

In my educated opinion, it is a bug..

I cannot believe you stopped to take a picture! I bow to your braveness!

That necklace is wicked awesome lady!

Janet's link shows it's a female, so you're about to be an Auntie! There's a "Charlotte's Web" image somewhere in there.

Your necklace has a tranquil feel, beautiful!
