Beading Babes Project 6

Hi Y'all,

It is time to reveal what I did with the Beading Babes project 6 choices.  Just a little recap on how Beading Babes works.  Every other month Karyn White of Releases by Rufydoof blog, the wonderful founder of the Beading Babes, selects 2 to 4 projects from either Beadwork or Bead and Button magazines that we can choose from to reproduce our version of the pattern.  One can do all or some of the projects.  For project 6 these following patterns were chose for us to choose from:

1. Retro Daisies by Janice Chatham published in the April 2012 Bead and Button magazine

2. Ripple Effect by Sherry Serafini published in the June/July 2011 Beadwork magazine

3. Soutastic Soutache Earrings by Amee McNamara published in the June 2012 Bead and Button magazine

4. Josephine's Collar by Jill Devon published in the June/July 2011 Beadwork magazine

I love all four of these choices and I bought the supplies for all four, but I ended up only getting two of the patterns done.  I did the Retro Daisies in two different color ways and I did the Ripple Effect, so without further ado here are my versions of these two patterns. 


 The first pattern I did was the Retro Daisies it was the least time consuming of the patterns.


This one I did in pastel colors of aqua, pink and light green netted base.



This one I did in jewel tone colors of dark red, blue and a green netted base.  The toggle in this one was made by Lesley Watts of the The Gossiping Goddess blog and these can be purchased in her Esty shop.


My second choice was the Ripple Effect it took me about 15 hours to make this one, but it was worth the time.


I chose a Czech glass button as the focal for my cuff.




Well there y'all go my pieces for Beading Babes project 6.  Beading Babes has grown by hundreds since Karyn started the Beading Babes group on facebook here we post our pictures on the facebook page and those of us with blogs do blog posts as well.  Thank you for stopping by I hope you enjoyed what you saw.


Happy beading Y'all
Therese

  16. Oh my these are beautiful works Therese. I love the jewel tone colors of the Retro Daisies. Lovely!
    The cuff is so elegant and I drooled over that pattern in Beadwork. I'm afraid I'm not at that level yet. But I'm glad to see you did it and did it beautifully!

  20. Awesome work Therese. I particularly love the cuff. I'm amazed that you finished this in 15 hours. I took a class once with Sherry Serafini on a bead embroidery cuff. It took me months to finish. Gorgeous work.
