  1. Oh birds---tweet--I mean sweet!

    I'd love to see you use Green Girl beads in a long mixed media necklace--I just love those. And a big YES to the tutorial idea.

    Thanks for another great giveaway!

  2. OOO Lorelei, This one will be difficult for you to give away with your love of all things "birdy".

    I'd love to see a button tutorial -- how to incorporate 2-4 holed buttons into jewelry.

    Please put my name in the hat for the little birdies.

  3. I think that anything that you would care to share in a tutorial would be a win-win for everyone!
    I love the little birdies...have been using them a lot lately!
    But these are much prettier than what I have :-)
    I would love to see you use these in a birdhouse themed jewelry ensemble...some of those little house beads, these birds, some nests, and branches, etc, etc. Now....go!

    Enjoy the day!

  5. Of course, we'd love for you to post a tutorial. Anything you do with Green Girl Studio beads would look great...no doubt...the both of you are such excellent artists. I'd love for the little birdies to chirp in my mailbox!

    Absolutely, yes to a tutorial using buttons and also "ring blanks". Your button creations are great!! I would also like to see a tutorial on how to add ribbon to my designs. Maybe someday you do a chart of how much wire to cut based on the sizes of the beads to be wire wrapped.( Wow, sorry that sounds like an enormous project, a good project but really big! ) As always I consider you the bead queen. Love the little birds, I hope they will fly right home to me. Melanie

  7. Just a few days ago I was wishing you would do a tutorial on using buttons in jewelry. I have a ton of colorful, cool buttons from the eighties that I would love to use. As to how for you to use the Green Girl Studios beads - your creativity beats mine!

  8. Oh, I love birdies! I would like to see GGS beads incorporated into some sweet earrings.
    I agree, a button tutorial would be cool.

  21. I think the beads would be nice in a longish necklace with silver chain and only a few colored beads (green or orange maybe).

  25. Your work is awesome.
    And it's you, if you have a tutorial won't people just be taught how to make a necklace exactly like yours?
    How about showing/telling us how you pick the colors you put together. Cause your really good at that. The colors are ones I wouldn't think of putting together, but when you do, well it's magic! I always think wow those colors look great together, who knew?! YOU DID!
    Thanks for that Lorelei!

  26. Just do what you do and you do so well.

  27. Those cute little birds would make wonderful charm dangles or links on a bracelet, maybe in earthy greens and browns?

    ReplyDelete
  28. I think a GG charm bracelet would be in order. Bird themed of course. Birds, tiny bird houses, nests, etc. Those bird beads are soooooo cute! Tutorials are always good. Something about asymmetrical designing would be great. Something I'm not good at, at all :)

  30. I would like to see the birds in a charm bracelet with mixed chain and a really neat focal bead - maybe robin egg blue?

    I would really like a tutorial on including ribbon, leather, etc in a mixed media necklace.

    Really like your work - will be on my list for Christmas this year.

  33. The birds fit into so themes. I would love to see them incorporated into a charm type necklace with earthy colors and other bird themed charms like nests, eggs, maybe a mixed media necklace. I would also love any tutorials that you write.

  37. How I would luv these tweetie birds!
    I could see them in a long necklace with some bright colorful beads - birds of paradise.
    My vote is for a button tutorial and asymmetrical desiging.

  38. These are adorable! It seems like Nov 1 will never get here--I want my copy NOW!

    Rather than tutorials, I would love to see your design process.

  39. Maybe stitch markers or a key fob?

  40. I have liked all of the giveaway items, but these are my favorite yet!! Fantabulous!
    I'd like a tutorial of anything.
    Thanks!

  41. I would love a tutorial on making the bracelets that wrap around the wrist two or three times, then can also be worn as a necklace.

  42. I'd love to see you use them in some sort of a mixed-media piece that maybe incorporated fabric flowers or something anthropologie-like.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I would like to see you use some Green Girl Studios beads in a piece that uses a lot (lot being a relative term) of textiles - fabric, ribbon, yarn, whatever. I think that there is a lot of great potential for these beautiful pewter pieces against something flowing and soft.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I'm another fan for a mixed medium tutorials, you do them so effortlessly and I really struggle with them. I would love to pick up some hints from you on how you pick your pieces to use in a project.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I love the birds-I can see them on a long chunky chain necklace with braches,leaves and rich fall colored beads. A tutorial on anything would be great but like others suggested - buttons would be fun- you are so good with them.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I hope the birdies find a home here in NC.
    I would LOVE to see a tutorial on incorporating buttons into a long necklace maybe including some ribbon. Thanks! -- Stacy

    Tutorials are always helpful.

    Love,love,love these birds! Would love to see you use them in one of your fantastic asymetrical necklaces. And, by the way, love your work in Chainstyle, my new favorite book! And yes, a button tutorial would be great! Hope these dears can find their way to my mail box!

  53. Yes, a tutorial is fabulous idea! And I agree that buttons and ribbons would be helpful topics. I would love to see a Green Girl Studio owl bead in a dark blue wintery scheme...

    Lorelei - I've been collecting buttons since I was a little girl. My grandmother had an abandoned button factory in her backyard. How I wish I still had some of those old blanks. Anyway, a button tutorial would be fun, you are a master! I am now an empty nester and would love to fill my nest with some little birdies! Thanks for the opportunity, Debby iceberg @argolink.net

  55. I'd love to see some green girl studio beads in chunky charm-style bracelets (and yes, I'd also love to see some tutorials!)

    ReplyDelete
  56. I think I am sneaking in her under the wire!

    Green Girl beads and your designs--what wouldn't I want to see? Tutorials are always appreciated, especially if they share techniques that can be adapted to new ideas.

    Enjoy your week,
