Beading Babes

I can't really believe it is almost a month since my last blog post - although I have done two today. I discovered two great new groups for beaders on Facebook and have been madly making a project for each of them. They have been good creative excercises and I enjoyed them. The first group- Beading Babes - Bringing Beaders together - had a project based on two designs by Helena Tang-Lim. One featured in Bead and Button Magazine June 2012 and I doubt I would have got around to doing it if it wasn't for this group project. Fortunately, everything I needed was in my stash so I was able to make a necklace and earrings fairly quickly. Looking forward to doing more in the future. Here is my interpretation of "Echoes of Nefertiti".

Your Nefertiti set is great. The color combination is really eye catching. Hope you have fun with project 6. I can't decide which project to begin.

Ohh, I like your interpretation and your use of the two hole beads. It is very nice indeed :-)

Your interpretation came out fabulous! I love all the different types of beads that you use for both the necklace and the earrings.
