Bead Embroidery Guild on Etsy....

Finally my internet connection seems to be up and running, wow, wasn't sure I was going to make it those three days!... I ran across an Etsy Bead Embroidery Guild ,  I submited a request to join this team as fast as my fingers would type .  I noticed the team still doesn't have that many members yet. It occured to me that maybe I am not the only one that doesn't know about this team :)
On another note : I have decided which Picasso painting I will use in October challenge for the EBW, as I posted earlier there were many paintings that just captivated me , seems I might be spending a little more time learning about famous artists!

Picasso challenge?

'Old Guitarist'
Pablo Picasso challenge coming up for the Etsy beadweavers, I am thrilled to be able to  join in the fun this time :) , when I read about this challenge I seriously had know knowledge about Picasso or his art. After checking out his artwork and reading bits and pieces about him I have decided  that i find this artist quite unique in both his work and his life.  I am not certain of the painting that I am going to represent in my beadwork yet, as a matter of fact I think i have it narrowed down to five paintings to pick from still!

White Time Again

I just love how clean white and crystal looks together, almost as much as I love beading with no patterns, I started a seed bead peyote circle last night , making sure to add a little silver touch to it , so far so good, well that is if you can look past my photography skills :) , I am thinking a peyote chain and herringbone rope in the same color scheme will work for me , more pic's tomorrow, happy beading !

A Box of Beads

What a Great day! I spent a good deal of time cleaning up the bead room, I was able to help my young neice with a bead box of her own, she showed quite some interest in doing bead embroidery,  I never thought my neice would show interest in making anything more than a simple necklace or a bracelet, guess I was wrong, I am having a blast teaching her , I am thrilled she wants to learn the art of beadweaving.  She informed me that she wants to learn RAW tomorrow,  or start a cuff, or a pendant with her new jade dolphin bead, or even ........ and the list went on and on ...

Summer 2011

I am ready for summer to be over, not because of the heat, or because I hate the sun, or because I just love the rain.   Truth be known I love summer ,  well all except this one.  
Coffee, my dog and companion for ten years has passed due to complications after heartworm treatment.
      Once again I will pick up the pieces of my broken heart and continue to move forward in hopes of a better day (Summer)
    On another note , this is still a blog about my beadwork :)
