Instead of making a scrapbook layout, I did something completely different this time and made a necklace.
The seed beads in the necklace are glass, and the other beads are a mix of wood, glass, metal, and plastic, arranged semi-randomly.
I used many different beads from my collection, and it would be impossible to list all the sources; sadly, some of the bead shops that I used to frequent have closed. However, the seed beads are the "Woodland" mix from Glass Garden Beads, a Minnesota bead shop that is alive and well.
Thanks for stopping by my blog to check out this post. I have loved participating in the Summer of Color--it is my favorite blogosphere find of the year! I'll close this post by reviewing the six Summer of Color projects that I created this year.
week 6 (this week)--sage green & sepia
As you see from the photo above, I still have enough of the "Woodland" seed beads left to make a bracelet to match my necklace. I guess we all know what my next beading project will be. :) But first, I want to do some more scrapbooking this weekend. I hope that your weekend, whatever it holds for you, will be a great one!
