Imagine my surprise when out of the blue Bill Zhang of ZNet Shows contacted me to be on the Tucson Design team for an upcoming bead show. I'm thinking there must be a catch, but no, all I have to do is do my thang with the beads that they send me...free beads...for moi?! Heck yeah, I'm down! He and his team will choose their favorite designs and take them to Tucson to be displayed in their booth for all to see. Cool!
The mix that they sent everyone consists of cultured sea glass beads. Everyone's mix was different so it will be fun to see what everyone designed!
For now, here's what I made:
This is my mix!
Bracelet made with Sea Glass (of course), Pewter butterfly and pewter rounds.
Long, boho chic necklace made with sea glass rounds, a 40x30 stone pendant, and a patina'd charm.
Earrings made with filigree round beads and triangle sea glass.
Will you believe that this is the only pic I got of these because they fell off the table while I was snapping pics and points broke right off? Ack!! And I thought these were the coolest earrings. They are glass...and they fell onto my tile floor so, ya know. :(
Ya'll know vintage is my first love! These earrings are made with vintage opal navettes and matte sea glass tulip beads.
Starfish earrings made with filigree bead caps and matte tulip beads.
Round domed sea glass beads with petite vintage daisies. Romantic yet mod?
I hope Bill and team (and you!) like what I made.
