I’ve been lax about posting pictures from the last 3 meetings, and feel badly about that, so got the July 2012 photos ready ASAP this month. Lucy showed us how to make beaded beads – not the big clunky ones seen a lot, but some with small detailed patterns made with size 11 or 15 beads. Here’s a picture of some of her and Karen’s samples:
These would be lovely as jacket buttons, purse closures, or made into pins.
We actually were able to completely make one in a meeting and here is my beaded bead:
We’ll be making the open triangle beaded bead at next month’s meeting. I have a specific plan for that shape, and will share pictures of that project as it is being made.
Show and tell was sparse as a couple of us had been at Ricky Tims Seminar, and all of us have been busy this summer – some traveling, some babysitting, and some gardening. Jan shared some hand knit socks she made:
And some jewelry:
She’ll be showing us how to paint on copper in a future meeting. Since I love copper, I can not wait to learn that technique.
