Seed Bead Loops and Links…


It’s Sunday and my coffee cup is still half full as I write this.  I love a slow morning.  I was just looking back at the pictures from the wire wrapping workshop.  The kids made some great pendants that I want to share with you so I’ll post pictures this week.  I really like this seed bead loopy loop embellishment (see detail above).  Must do some more experimenting with that back in the laboratory.  Speaking of, it’s time to clock into my little work room.  I hope you’re having a wonderfully creative weekend.  I’ll see you tomorrow.
