3- strand bracelet

I've been wanting to do some more jewelry making/beading lately...mostly because my altered art muse has taken an extended vacation. Here is the bracelet I made yesterday.

mixed-media art

Finally!!! I've finally gotten to create something! I was really beginning to think I'd never have the chance or even worse...the inspiration to create.

Here is the mixed-media piece I made today. Not exactly the style of my home...may give it as a gift or possibly hang it by my computer.

Paper bead tutorial

So this is a VERY long time in coming. I had said a few days to my Yahoo group ABC altered book club.

First I made beads according to this tutorial.

1)Put dried bead on dowel. pencil, skewer, whatever it will fit snuggly.

2)Roll bead on a clear embossing ink pad such as Versamark.

3)Dip inked bead in UTEE.

4)Heat with heat gun.

5)Repeat steps 2 and 3.

6)Roll/dip in embossing powdwers, glitters, and PearlEx mixture.

7)Heat again...repeat if desired.

I generally work on one half of the bead at a time...let it cool then turn around and do the other side. I have 4-5 beads going at a time.
