Creative Combination

Being an ex-dancer and a would-be artist, I found this fascinating. Even if it does not resonate with you in the same way, maybe it will spur you to think about combining two things you love into something new. Something that was made for you and by you. Very creative!

Pink and Black Necklace Re-Do

 I made this necklace many years ago. The construction is embarrassingly simple. The   base is some twisted black cords held together by endcaps.  The beads and charms are attached by tieing them on with black embroidery floss. Simple. No tools required (well, scissors), and it has held up for years.

But when I wear it, it bugs me. It never looks right to me on any neckline.  The beads don't flow up the necklace far enough to suite me.

So, I made some more beads and tied them on. I like it so much better looking fuller!

This is a good technique to spruce up an old necklace or one you purchased that you are tired of. Just add a few more beads.

Some Color for a White World

I love winter, but it is so white. Working on this colorful project this week was fun, love the colors!

The Amazing Helen at Blumenthal Lansing sent me some new embellishment packs. I made this fabric cuff bracelet for Jo-Ann fabrics. The package had buttons in three sizes and four colors, beads, and embroidery floss. All I needed to make this bracelet was a yard of grosgrain ribbon and a needle.

Stay tuned for more info on product and package when they hit the store.
