Bead Journal Project January 2013

This is my January project, a free-form 
embroidery that I weaved with a lot of 
fringe. I named it " Midnight Tidepool. " 
So far it has been fun weaving. I like
the flow of colors. I finished it today.

Bead Soups

I used 4 bead soups. I have not used the colors before for my
Bead Journal Project 2013 January cuff project. The beads 
were leftovers!


I was working on a rectangle donut clasp that 
uses 2 snap buttons. My clasp inspiration came
from my facebook friend Linda Cimins. She made
some beautiful loomed work and loom patterns.
I love her work.

I am going to make my own 12 clasp for 12 months

Second day project

Second day: I added a shell with peyote stitch around 
the shell this morning. I found some shells from Florida 

First day project

First day I added a small shell, coral, abalone, heisi 
shell beads and pearls. I sewed a silver thread to 
make waves.

My January Project

I started my January project yesterday after joining
the Bead Journal Project 2013 group. I am choosing 
coral reef for my theme and will make 12 cuffs.
My color inspiration for this month are blue, brown, 
orange and tan.
I am going to use felt for the cuff base.
