I've been working on some new jewelry pieces for my Spring and Summer wardrobe. Since I'm heading home to visit family in May, I decided I needed some new pieces to wear. So, I've purchased a few new clothing items and am trying to coordinate with them.
I love to bead crochet, especially with wire. I have 4-5 projects pre-strung so when I have free time I can just grab a crochet hook and go. :::Smiles::: I worked up a gorgeous piece last night which may end up in my Esty shop when it is finished. http://www.shellyraewood.etsy.com/
The piece I'm sharing this morning I made for me. It is a Daisy Chain variation that I created. It is strung on white Nymo thread using silver lined seed beads, Vitral faced round crystals and copper round crystals. You cannot imagine the sparkle of the faceted beads. :::Smiles:::
I'll share more pieces as I get them finished. We spent the weekend working out in they yard!! Ugh!! I keep telling my hubby that beads are way more fun!! LOL Enjoy!!
All my ART comes from the hands, heart and mind of a Mixed Media
ARTist. I am a native of rural, central Illinois and am a recent and
grateful transplant to Central Florida. After 25 years......I have finally come "Home".
Of all the gifts I have received, God blessed me best, the day He
instilled a passion to create in my soul. Time spent in the Studio
in praise to Him and up to my elbows in glass, paper, beads, glitter and glue is the saving grace of my life. For this I am forever grateful. Shelly Rae
