About this design:

During the summer, I get together with a group of awesome, experienced beaders at a bead shop in Austin. I calling it learning at "the feet of the masters". They talked me through the making of this sweet little bracelet. I may have to take another pic of it. Did NOT photograph well in the house.


Seed beads and Swavorski crystals...LOTS OF THEM!

    Thank you so much, Dear Friends! Yes, there’s a fabulous group of ladies who meet Tuesday and Thursday mornings at the lbs. They’re always working on a couple of projects and sharing and teaching each other. They’re seed beaders and LOVE sparkly crystals. You can not imagine the amount of eye-blinding BLING in the room. They’ve given up wearing watches so they can load on more bracelets. It’s a wonderful experience. They’re teaching me another bracelet now…Blooming Crystals…a right-angle weave project. Can hardly wait until Tuesday!!!
