I decided to do some "beading" rather than wire, and guess what? I went right back to wire....I guess it's becoming a part of me. This was a really fun project for me. Creating the wire pieces, putting them together, and incorporating the beads - it fulfilled the creative need in me. I love the way it came out and especially how the colors work together. My mind is already working towards a next project - I seem to create as I wake in the morning...that's when the creative juices seem to flow! There is so much beautiful bead and wire work out there in cyberspace and in magazines, that you have a lot of ideas to work with to create your own unique piece of jewelry. I read of one designer who gets ideas as she drives down the road - like the way a truckload of logs is stacked in a truck - so I am trying to learn to keep my eyes open to everything around me - colors, textures, or the way something twists or bends. You never know what might inspire that next piece of jewelry! Until then....Have a great day! Anita


  1. I know what you mean. Beading is tough for me too! I'd much rather play with wire!!! your projects turned out quite nice. Thanks for posting!

  2. Thanks, Kat! I appreciate your comments. Today I took out some beads, but instead an tackling a wire bracelet design I got off the net...I'll post when complete. Have a great day!

  3. Hey Anita-
    Those pieces are great! I was at Let It Bead on Saturday. Check out my latest blog (at the end of the post) and you can see the necklace I created with the beads I got there. Have you used the beads you to there a few weeks ago to make anything?

  4. Thanks, Melissa. Have not used the beads just yet - but I did have them out today. I'm working on a bracelet right now, hope to have it done in the next day or two - inbetwee babysitting. I'll check out y our necklace! Anita

  5. These are lovely. The pictures don't do them justice. I like the changes to your blog also.
