She makes the most incredible clay pieces, and has recently expanded into polymer clay.
When I received my beads, I had to take a deep breath, because they are quite a bit bigger than what I normally work with....I'm a seed bead girl, remember?
However, inspiration was pretty quick to strike, because I remembered a great tutorial that I had not had a chance to try yet........from the awesome Sherri Stokey! Do you know where this is headed? No? Well, come on, let me show you!
I knew that Sherri's Multiwrap Macrame Bracelet tutorial would be perfect to showcase these beads.
I used an even bigger bead from the talented Natalie Pappas for the centerpiece. (I'm using this as a necklace, rather than a bracelet).
I had to throw in that cool mood bead, it will show off all the colors! And I loved creating some beaded beads to slide on as well.
I'm so very pleased with how the necklace turned out. Huge thanks to Kristi for helping me to see that I can create with larger beads,and to Sherri for the perfect tutorial!
Head on over to Kristi's blog to see what everyone else created! Blessings, Shirley
