My first bead crochet bracelet

I haven't been around much lately, but I have exciting news (for me anyway :-/), I did a bead crochet class. It's just something I haven't been able to get the hang of, so it was great to see someone actually do it.

Here is my first attempt (back and front).



Watch out for more variations.

Till next time :)

My Inspiration

I often marvel at how awesome some peoples work is. To help you understand where I am coming from, click on the title "my inspiration" to go to the Bead Dreams submissions for 2008.

Here are a few of my favourites:

Jama Watts
Tatiana Van Iten - that's the back of the piece!
Irina Astratenko

and last, but not least....

Hiroko Toda

I could add more, but you get the picture.

These people really inspire me and constantly amaze me. I have a feeling I'm going to need to buy more beads! :)
