THE VENERABLE BEAD!


This weeks colours on PLAY DATE CAFE are black, white, red and turquoise.

Yesterday I went to my monthly Embroiderers Guild meeting where someone was showing us how to make bead and wire beads, I already know how to do this but haven't made any in ages and the thought occured to me that I could make some for the colour challenge!


So, here they are made into a hanging wire and beaded bead tassel! Fun things to make and great embellishments for cards, boooks, anything really!


A close up so you can see them better!

what a fab idea!! Will look great dangling from journals or cards, but actually look rather fab altogether like that :)

These are fantastic. I'd love to make these but my crafty cupboard is already bulging!

I love the wording - 'because', like 'just because I can...' Good things, lovely!

This is a great idea and I might have to give it a try. These would be perfect to embellish a mini album :)
