Company

My in-laws are visiting for the weekend. So, it's been busy to say the least- the kids are ALL ABOUT the beading, and have begged me to let them bead since they arrived.
Here they are laying out their designs. Of course, I don't have any stretchy string so I've been stringing their pieces on linen cording which doesn't work that great with no clasp- but they are quite occupied, either way.
I gave them a bin of lucite to work with. Probably the cheapest beads I could find in the stash- he he he! But Alexandra keeps trying to get into the artbeads in the bead cabinet when I'm not looking! :)
Maxwell is very symmetrical in his designs, he's always been very meticulous with anything he works on. Alex is a bit more like her Aunt Lori. I'll show you some of their finished designs tomorrow.
This morning I was able to sneak away to put a bracelet together. Forget me not... will be going into the shop momentarily.

  2. that is so pretty. I love the colors. I love the knotting as well. I want to make a necklace using that technique. And the green girl pendant goes great with the piece

I'm sorry to have to turn on the word verification here, but I got fed up with spammers comments!
