Beads and jewellery showcase June 17
« on: June 11, 2017, 11:03:06 PM »
Hey ho - June already!

I've just taken part in a challenge which was very timely since I'd been away for two weeks and my claying momentum had ground to a halt, as usual  ::)
The challenge was nice and easy:  simply to make a two colour Skinner blend and use it in something.  I added other colours and blundered my way into two versions of an ikat design (memo to self: look at a tutorial next time!), a brain cane with added bullseyes and then used leftovers to make a scrap sheet.  I used these to cover some cuff blanks which was the first time I'd made these - they're really comfortable!  Still got to add some magnetic clasps to a couple.

Brilliant, Carrie!  Those bracelets are beautiful and so clever and I love the way you've used up your scraps.  Lovely work all round. 😍
