What an honor! The lovely bead purveyor Dakota Stones
contacted me a couple of months ago and asked if I would be a featured designer for their monthly blog series. Would I? A chance to design some jewelry using stones from one of my favorite suppliers? Sign me up.
It was a really fun project to do. Stringing beads is my first love. (I know I wrote the book on how to solder
, but beads were my gateway drug.) So I grabbed my Soft Flex
beading wire and went to work. (Okay, there is SOME metal and soldering in there, but mostly it's BEADS!!)
Here is a teaser picture of one of the projects. To see the rest, hop on over and read the entire post on their blog
Like I mentioned before, I love to string beads! If you have not beaded for a while, I urge you to jump in and string up a quick project. Soft Flex beading wire (.019 original silver color is my favorite) makes it fast and easy. Brush up on your stringing skills with my FREE class from Beaducation.com
It has a running time of 50 minutes and shows you all of the basic skills you need to string a sturdy necklace. Plus I am wearing a sassy red dress in the video.
I also have a little kit of treasures to give away to one lucky reader. I have a lovely centerpiece (like the one I used in one of my blog designs) a variety of semi-precious beads and a mini-spool of Soft Flex. Just add a few beads from your stash to round things out, and voila! You'll be on your way to stringing. Comments will be open through this Sunday, January 12. I'll pick a winner on Monday and send your packet out after I get back from my adventures on the 20th (more about what I am doing coming up this week!)
Happy commenting and good luck!
