This week I made a pair of "Bolas Canastas" beaded beads designed by Cath Thomas.
In the FB group Cellini Peyote Freaks there are optional challenges to participate in. I missed out on the first challenge, but used this blog post to make Bolas and enter challenge #2. The challenge is to use a color wheel to pick a palette outside of your comfort zone. Not only are these beads in a color I rarely use, but they are also monotone.
I am usually a bright- in your face colors- probably a rainbow kinda beader! These are pretty and delicate. I am sure they will make pretty earrings eventually :)
Next week I am going to make more Bolas! I am going to make them in more of my style- with lots of colors!!!
