Going back to 2008 - my design process was very much like it is now, except I didn't have the stash of beads that I have these days.
I miss those fun word charms that Melanie Brooks made back in the day. They always added that little bit of pizzazz to a piece.
Necklace of Knowledge
I love this!! The pewter Tree of Knowledge coin pendant from Green Girl Studios is one of my favorites. The lampwork glass bead is from The Orange Bell and some simple green silk.
Another favorite! I love the red beads in this piece- the asymmetrical placement- and the experimentation of using cording as the button loop. This pewter bird from Mamacita Beadworks sits on top of a wire wrapped pod pendant from Michaels, that I filled with turquoise rounds.
I am just trying to get inspired today. Hoping to make stuff, we'll see if I can stay focused for a while.
Hope you all have an inspiring and crafty weekend!
