Latest Beadies

Post  Tinker on Thu May 30, 2013 8:52 am

Some colours to cheer us all up!

Ok first of all, here are my butterflies. They are for beads of courage - normally all the beads go to the children but the butterflies have special meaning because they go to the parents of the children who have lost the fight. Sad Sad
A few of my lampie buddies have said they can't make them because they get too sad, but it feels cathartic for me, and I know that if someone was out there making things with love to help commemorate something that had happened to me I know I would find that very special. So here are my little dudes:

Someone said they looked like edible humbugs! I think he may have a point Cool

Ok so next, I made a set with some scrummy murrini that I made myself

And then I have also put the murrini up for sale as it's my best yet, and I want to broaden my repertoire in the shop. I haven't uploaded a pic to flikr and I can't from here so here's a link to Etsy so you can see https://www.etsy.com/listing/152535108/soft-pink-delicate-murrini-for

Then, I put up this week's creations, which I also blogged because it's a massive 'I've got no mojo' kind of set, where I picked a colour and a technique - ie dots - and just kept at it. I really love the set and am actually considering doing the same thing in blue today!

I've also done a few bhb's which I have cored and they are waiting for photographs so I'll come back with them. I'm going to brave Ebay with them I think.

Love the butterfly symbolism, can understand why some could not make them, takes someone special.

Some corkers amid the greens.

The butterflies are brilliant and what a wonderful idea. I love the flowery ones as well.
