Bead Table Wednesday 15/6

June 15, 2011 § 4 Comments

There’s lots of different pieces on my table this Wednesday, including a few beads I recently bought from work:

Ceramic beads from work – remind me of birds eggs or little fossils

Freshwater steely grey pearls strung with #11 beads and peyote band (to be a bracelet), Tibetan silver bicones

More ceramic beads – these lemony yellow tubes are hopefully going to be used for the Margie and Me Challenge

Apricot and gold beaded components for earrings – need to find long, bright gold kidney shaped earwires (anyone know where to get these, preferably online and in bulk?)

Peyote tubes and Czech peacock beads as earring dangles (possible) – how great are those Czech beads! I love them

Purple and lilac seed bead and Czech glass pendant

Sigh. This last photo was going to be a present for someone. But, well, I spent a lot of time making it – and then realised that there were a couple of places where the thread had caught and extra was sticking out, and then also that it didn’t hang right, and then…argh! I was quite annoyed that I had done all this work for ‘nothing’. But then I remembered that to get very very good at something, you have to be prepared to make stuff that isn’t quite 100% to start with, as practice. I’m going to take it apart, play around with the components, and start again. And that’s ok!

Don’t forget to have a look at the other Bead Table Wednesday photos over on Flickr. What have you been making recently – final, polished, 100% awesome projects, or something that’s not so great and more of a ‘practice’ piece?
