My life without Jewelry

About this design:

I got into our autumn arts and crafts fair that starts Friday, but they were full of jewelers and accepted me based on my sewing and crochet work... so I am trying to incorporate beads in just about everything. It's been hard to not make jewelry for the last few weeks. The first pic is a purse with a bead-crocheted edging. The second is a scarf. Third and fourth are of a purse I made from one of my fave old sweaters (with peridot, Czech glass and carved coral roses). The last three pics are of pieces I am still trying to figure out how to incorporate beads into in the dwindling amount of time I have left. I think for the sweater, I will make a belt with turquoise in it, the others I'm not sure.


everything under the sun, plus as many of my bead stash as I can use!

    Thank you ladies! I am done with the show, and am recuperating by… crocheting! I did decide to go ahead and make some bead embroidered cabs for my artist’s demo… now what can I stick them on?
