In the first (free) issue of Soda Lime Times they had a tutorial for Raked Dot Beads which looked kind of fun. So I made one their way and then made my own variations. I seem to be on this rainbow kick lately which you will notice in a few of these.
Okay Sally, this next batch is for you. I know you said you were thinking about have something made with beads of this color combo but without the encasement. I made a few for you to look at so you can decide if you still like them without the encasing. They do take on a totally different look and while the colors don't react as much as I thought they might, the white will not be as crisp on the blue when done this way.
A few more beads from the day:
I made a few pieces of jewelry last week too and I didn't get them posted. The earrings are for me - to go with my commando necklace (oh I made myself a new commando bracelet too but forgot to photograph it - darn it!)
This bracelet will soon be for sale either at the salon or on my artfire site.
So that is 38 beads made in one day - not to shabby! Thanks for reading my bead blog!!!!!
