Year Long Project Beads #23 & #24

Bead #23 (11/19) and Bead #24 (12/3)

Gobble Gobble! Happy Thanksgiving!

 I had big plans for my bead last Thursday, but I didn't want to jinx the Panthers by making a big deal out of the 9-0 record. So I hesitated to make my bead when due and now the record is 10-0 :) Oh- and they are playing again today! In honor of the Panthers AWESOME season I made a mixed up bead in Panthers colors as bead #23!



Because the Holidays are fast approaching and I delayed last weeks bead, this post is a two for one! I am posting the bead I would have posted next Thursday (12/3) so that I don't forget!
For this bead I was inspired by holiday wrapping paper! I used DB 35, DB 148, and DB 603.

Here is a picture of all the beads so far! Next time I post a picture of all of them it will be as a finished necklace! I can't wait!

My last bead is due by 12/17. It is the last bead of my year long project, then I get to assemble the necklace and wear it proudly!!!

1 more to go! Thanks for reading! Happy Beading! -Beth

Tutorials



For a few months I have been trying to figure out a better way to provide my tutorials without stressing out about having to be near a computer to send emails and having to send apologies about downloads not working!

I have also wanted to have more of my time for designing, creating, photographing, and selling of my jewelry.


To make it easy on everybody, and to try support the bead community like they have supported me- I have decided to make all of my tutorials free, with an option to donate $3! My tutorials can be found in the page tabs at the top of this blog!


I would like to thank everyone who have purchased my tutorials in the past either on ArtFire or through this blog! I appreciate every one of you!

I hope everyone enjoys these tutorials (and the new ones that I will be posting)

Feel free to share your creations with me!
Happy Beading! -Beth

Year long project: Bead #22

Bead #22 (11/5) The Green bead. For this bead I used DB 776 and DB 432 using the same pattern as bead 4, but with less contrasting colors. 432 shows up as a blue in listings of the color and in my pattern, but to me is more of a soft green. Next week (or sooner if I get motivated) I will post a picture of all the beads strung together!
