I originally wanted brighter colors for the red, orange, & yellow, but they didn't have them. So I muted the palette a little.

Beautiful!

Did you happen to take pics of the one you made for the wedding? I'm curious how that one turned out.

That's awesome. I'd certainly pay for something like that if I saw it in a store somewhere. Great job!

You should be selling these! I'd buy one! It's beautiful!

That's very pretty. So far I've loved all of your stuff though. This one is very unique. I'm with everyone else. I would definitely buy a piece of jewelry from you. I'm thinking special occasion where I whine for something. :D For instance, I graduate in the spring, and am not above buying myself presents. LOL!

I love your stuff! I really want to learn to do this.

Look for a beading store in your area. They probably have classes. I learned all the elements here in varoius classes - they give you a good baseline for jumping into design!

Lovely!

Where do you find all your beads?
qafhappy From: qafhappy Date: June 28th, 2006 01:49 pm (UTC) (Link)
I got the cord, the sterling wire, and the crystals at The Bead Factory, my local beading store. It has great classes - I've taken quite a few there in the past! I got the headpins & Thai spacers at The Puget Sound Bead Festival last year. That was a pricy few days!

Argh - change the above link to The Bead Factory.

I should use 'copy' instead of trying to type it...

You make such beautiful things. That's lovely.
