The last couple of day's beads:

All pressed really thin for a sleek look & comfortable wear!

I finally got some beads made!! End-of-day focals & nuggets:

What's "end-of-day"? That's when I use all the short ends of glass rods from other day's beads to make new beads--no glass goes to waste around here!

I snuck up on Ayden as he was napping yesterday--dreaming of something real serious, I think!

My newest project, a beaded vessel

Passion Flower:

Pattern by Laura McCabe. It was really fun to make--you make all the pieces and parts until you have this little pile of cool things on your table, then you sew them all together into the pendant. Much different than the way I usually work! I also learned a lot while making it and have some good ideas for using parts of the pattern for different projects. So very much worth the price of the pattern, in my opinion!

I'm also in the middle of working on my July Beaded Art Journal page. Yes, I said my July page!! I'm a bit behind--but I'll catch up soon I hope!
