As an overview, I’m working on a piece that is a Bead Soup Challenge.  Eva Sherman from Grand River Beads sent a selection of fun beads over to Kalmbach Publishing Company and they forwarded the selection to me.  Deadline is October 31st and I thought I was doing ok, but I just ran across a snag.  I’ll get to it in a second.  I think I’m still okay for time.

Check out the links that the bottom of this posting to see where this piece started and how it is progressing.

Last night, I added more wirewrapping to the base and also some more bead embroidery to the top.  There was actually more fringe onthe base, but I actually removed it because it was getting too heavy and I wanted to reserve some of those cool tube beads for the side fringe.

Here’s what I’ve got right now.

Anyhow, so I’m not too happy with it today.  I should say I like the top, and I like the bottom, but I DON’T LIKE THE TWO OF THEM TOGETHER.  They look like two different necklaces.  Also, those leaves still look pretty pink, even though are orange IRL.

So, I think I’ll probably set aside this project and let it stew for a day or two.  I’ve got orders I’ve been ignoring anyhow that I ought to catch up on.

Tune in later for the next installment…

Well, I got voted off the island!

The piece I was paired against was incredible and took Alla 500+ hours to make. But, if you didn’t catch it on Facebook, I had a photoshoot with lovely Danielle and here was the result:

I’ve signed up for next year’s Battle already!

But first – I have something planned up my sleeve for the Bead & Button Bead Dreams show next June. Gotta get that done first!

BRAG PAGE – THIS IS THE PAGE ABOUT YOU!

So, I’d been promising to get student and customer photos up on my website for YEARS. And I never seemed to get around to it because by the time I’d get around to actually updating my website it would be way past midnight and then it seemed like it was already outdated two days later.
 
I finally put together an album on my Facebook business page. It gets more hits than my website anyhow, so its probably a better place to show off your work. If you have made a piece from one of my tutorials and want to show it off then just email a photograph of it to me. Don’t worry about cropping and color correction – I can do that for you. goodrivergallery@aol.com
