Self Taught Bead Artist

Tuesday, 8 November 2011


And so it's that time of year again: exam time. Ugh. The one thing that kinda sucks about education... Had one today, so 1 down, 3 to go. And all I want to do is BEAD, not study!! :P

I did do some beading a few weeks ago, and finished this necklace (see picture) for the November Etsy Beadweavers Team challenge, "Totally Twisted."

It's called Twisted in Blue Brilliance and features a double spiral rope, peyote bezelled pendant, peyote stitched clasp and twisted fringe. I'm pretty happy with it!!!

Voting for the November challenge is taking place between the 9th and 15th of October, so head over to the EBW blog between those dates to vote for your favourite entries!! They're looking pretty amazing. Search "ebwc" under Handmade on Etsy to see some!

IN OTHER NEWS: I have FINALLY got my new facebook page up and running, so I'd be much obliged if you could head on over, check me out and like my page (if you haven't already done so). :)
And more news... New exciting group on Etsy!! The Bead Embroidery Guild. A group dedicated to bead embroidery and all its fans and expressors of this art form. So we have a blog and a facebook page, head on over and check them out! We're having a Bead Fest, sort of like a challenge but everyone wins. :D First theme is "Winter Wonderland," suggested by myself and voted for by the Guild. I'm excited to start my piece!! Silly study... :S

And speaking of bead embroidered pieces, here's a few I've done "recently:"

Watching the Roses (bead embroidered collar, my entry to the October EBWC)

Ray of Hope (bracelet, my entry to the June EBWC)

And finally:

Washing the Wall Plugs (a hardware store inspired necklace for a beading challenge [similar to the Best Fest for the EBEG] on Kinga Nichols' blog)

ALSO: I've had a shop name change, so I'm now ABeadedWorld instead of Megbeads. And I'm having a 10% off sale at the moment, 1 month only!! So come and visit! :D

That's all folks (for now...)!! :D
