Wow can you believe it is the end of October already! It seems like the older I get the faster the years go by. Christine and I have been having a great time creating with our gifted stash, here is what I picked for October...
The resin rose, mine is red and Christine's is turquoise, and some 14 mm yellow Fire Agate.
Here is what I made...
I have not just strung a necklace in a while and these beautiful 14 mm Fire Agate beads just want to be in a simple strung necklace. I paired them up with 10 mm yellow Agate and 4 mm Carnelian with copper findings. I like all the warm colors in this piece it reminds me of fall leaves.
I had two of the 14 mm beads left so I took some 20 gauge silver wire and made a pair of earrings. I am trying to do better with the wire wrapping, but still not there.
I thought long and hard on the rose pendant. I wanted to put it on something more then just a chain, but what type of rope did I want to bead. I started with a CRAW rope but then I was not feeling it, so I ripped it out. Then I started a peyote rope, but nah. Then I thought about Herringbone spiral, but I just did that for my last challenge, so I went to Russian spiral and was satisfied. I had some 3x4mm red roundels and some 3 mm AB clear bicones and did a little decorative section on each side of the pendant area. I used the few crystals I had left from the decorative area and used them in the bail.
Please go by Christine's blog and see what she has created with the 14 mm Fire Agate and resin rose.
Happy beading Y'all,
