June Village

One option for wearing the focal piece         The other option is to attach the hook
           attach the hook to the clasp            or                                       to the circle

This is my entry for the June are Bead Scene Challenge.  The house beads were made by Odd Designs NC on etsy.  I picked these up at her booth in 2012 and have been waiting for the perfect inspiration.  I picked up the lovely bird from the Humble beads booth this year as it seemed to flow with the inspiration pieces and the houses.  The white spacers were purchased from Julie Miller’s booth.

Bead & Button show

I attended the 2013 Bead & Button show in Milwaukee again this year.  In the 11 days I was there I took 10 classes and purchased some great deals.  I will be posting several entries detailing all of the wonderful things I learned, people I met, booths I enjoyed, etc.

Art Bead Scene May Blog Tour

The blog tour is out for this month.  I am very excited to have one of my submissions pictured:

Tesori Trovati wrote that I "got super inspired this month and created two great pieces inspired by the painting!  Flowers take center stage with both of her creations.  This one has the feel of the vase in those barrel beads and allow the beauty of that one solitary bloom to be extra special.
