Being a Superior Scribbler is not all that simple - feel the pressure to scribble! ;)
Here is my latest creation - Vanilla Ice-cream. I have been running around with this idea for a very long time.
Firstly, my husband bought me several great agate slices in his last trip to USA. They are quite specific stones due to their shape, and I was not realy sure what was the best way to deal with them. I was convinced that it was going to be a freeform piece. Then I saw a very interesting freeform necklace by Nataliya Pechenkina from biser.info. It gave me some good ideas, but I really did my best not to repeat anything and to create a really unique design.
Secondly, I really wanted to incorporate Swarovski beads in a freeform design based on pre-mixed seed beads. Auntiesbeads.com has kindly helped me in realisation of this idea, they carry a good selection of various seed beads, including a broad range of mixes.
Sometimes I enjoy mixing beads by myself, but sometimes it is great to have a pre-mixed "starter" to make your creativity spin. In this necklace, Au Natural, Good Earth, Moonstone and Golden Grain mixes were combined with several other Miyuki and Toho seed beads. I find multi-shape mixes perfect for making freeform.
And, finally, I just wanted to bead a white necklace for a very long time. That's the complete story of the Vanilla Ice-cream.
Disclosure: I have recieved the Swarovski chrystalls and some of the seed beads free of charge, in return for writing a honest review about the supplied products. Auntiesbeads.com has not compensated me in any way for writing this review.
