Jeri and Olivia Play with Beads

My friend Olivia came to visit and I took her to see my friend Jeri  (AKA Beading Yoda)  and Jeri’s wonderful beading studio chock full of seed beads, trims, embellishments,  findings and scores of new designs in progress.

Remember, it all starts with seed beads but can you imagine so many different designs and looks and patterns?  Olivia had a great time trying on all the bracelets.

There are some beaded beads mixed in here.  The bead base is made of  clear Lucite.  The finished beads look gorgeous.

Some unfinished pieces, tests and experiments,

I was beaded out at the end of the day.  Almost.  Who can ever have too many beads?

Good news

I have an earring project in

check it out!

I also signed up to participate in Lori Anderson’s 6th Bead Soup Blog Party.

Next week: a visit to Olivia’s studio.
