Beads




A few days ago Martha Lever posted the fabulous beads she made and it reminded me of the ones I did 5 years ago, or more, in a class that I took in Saluda NC with Sherrill Kahn...We painted and stamped fabric, tore it into strips and rolled it around a straw to create these beads...I did hundreds of them and made a few necklaces to sell and the rest of the beads got lost in my studio...I hunted them down after I saw Martha's post.....The photo is of a necklace I made years ago.....I let my daughter wear it yesterday and she sold it right off of her neck...lol......Maybe I will make a few more and start a Etsy shop.....and "maybe" that will happen!!!!!

You really should set up shop- that fabric bead necklace, polymer necklaces, and the journal are all saleable I'm sure! Go for it! Patsy from
