After looking at what I made I realized that I unknowingly made what Jill Wiseman calls her "Teeny Cellini". I didn't use her pattern to make mine, but I am sure I have seen one and it must have snuck into my creative memory somewhere. Jill Wiseman has a YouTube video about the Cellini spiral and 1:41 in she talks about her Teeny Cellini. I know she sells kits and the pattern for the Teeny Cellini on her website if you want to make one! This was so quick (and fun) that I actually ended up making two bracelets!
Obviously I won't be wearing them together since they don't go together at all! The second one I made is made with the Picasso beads I had leftover from earlier this year. After the first bright bracelet I knew I had enough Picasso beads left to make another. I really love the finish on them. I could stare at them for hours. Honesty time- these beads are the kind I wished I had when I was in high school. When I was bored I could have stared at each individual one for a while and passed the time :)
I didn't get very far into 2009's magazines before I figured out what I want to try for next week. "Hibiscus twist" by Kerrie Slade from the April 2009 Bead & Button is going to be my project. Last year while playing Putt-Putt I came across a gorgeous Hibiscus growing in the course. I stopped and took a picture of it. It is going to be my Hibiscus inspiration :)
It had just rained and the light was perfect, I was amazed how wonderful it turned out being this was a cellphone pic! Wish me luck beading it!
