Bead Journal Project 2010: Supplies, Planning, and Gratuitous Cat Photo

I splurged on seed beads for my birthday. Miko is overseeing the unpacking process.

I'm getting started on my January piece for the 2010 Bead Journal Project. I have finally decided on a theme: circles. My pieces are going to be circular in shape, roughly 5 inches in diameter. The interior design will vary, but will continue the circle theme. I'm drawing inspiration from Buddhist mandala designs and crop circles.

Latest Piece

Health issues have kept me from beading for awhile. These are earrings I made for my sister for Christmas. Techniques used include brick stitch and various bead embroidery stitches. I'm currently working on the 2010 Bead Journal Project.
