Beading Up A Storm

































I have not had a lot of time for blogging...Some health issues keep cropping up, but I have managed to get some beading done.



Thought you would like to see the latest effort..







These are little kimonos made into a necklace .




Shocking pink with 24 kt. gold beads, and the second color combo is red and black with silver. The 18 inch chains are made to resemble cherry blossoms... I will be adding them to my Etsy shop if anyone is interested.

Maggie, your beading work is beautiful. Your are so good at the tiny work. You must have a lot of patience.
Sorry to hear you are having health problems, I will keep you in my prayers. I was diagnosed with RA about six years ago, but I keep telling myself that I am healed and you can't tell by looking or being around me that I have RA. Try it, see if it will work for you. Take care of yourself and get plenty of rest.
Hugs, Pat

These pieces are quite lovely. Beading must be like meditating at times. Take one bead, and then another.

Hi everyone..
Thanks so much for stopping by. So happy you liked my beading.
I think Healing Woman you are right, Beading is so peaceful and calming. Well almost, except for to-day when I was trying a new pattern and could NOT get it to work!!haha
Oh well to-morrow is another day. Maybe I will give it a rest for awhile..
Tatting Chic I cancelled my facebook account... Never paid it much attention and privacy was a concern so that's that. Sorry..
Judy, Nice to hear from you. I guess your trip to PEI will be coming up soon.. I know how much you love Anne of Green Gables.... Now I hope I won't see you wearing red pigtails when you come home!!!!
Have a wonderful trip and stay safe.
Well I guess D Day is coming fast....Colonoscopy is Tuesday...
Wish me luck.
Meanwhile I am thinking positive Pat... I agree with you it helps...
Take care everyone and stay tuned as I am going to show you some of my paintings soon. Yes I have painted with oils too!!! I think I have about tried everything.. Maybe I should have just stuck to one thing and perfected it but I guess I'm not that kind of girl!! VBG
xoxo
