Now, on to the beads!! I have been determined to work on new techniques this summer, and I have some awesome books to do it with too. Mastering Beadwork, Beading Across America, Diane Fitzgerald's Shaped Beadwork, and a few others. Not to mention all the patterns on the internet!
So let's see if you can guess what the technique is for the one I chose!
So have you guessed it yet? Well, even you non-beadweavers have probably done this stitch. It's something that most little girls are taught. Yep, you're right.....daisy chain!
Actually, this is a double daisy chain. It's from Carol Cypher's Mastering Beadwork. I know I'll be making it more, since my daughter immediately requested one for herself!
Now, here's the "other goodies" part of the post. I was lucky enough to win a giveaway from Lisa Crone over at A Bead A Day. It was for a Swaroski Montana blue pendant. I was drooling, I wanted it so bad. And that sweet lady didn't just send the pendant, she blessed me with an abundance of goodies! See??
This bead frame is so pretty, I've never worked with anything like it, so I'm very excited to use it.
So here's my question....so many of you have talked about the fun of using liver of sulphur and gilder's paste to alter the look of metal. Could I try either of those on the metal flowers? Wasn't sure because of the crystal in the center.
Thanks for the advice!
