Beads, glorious beads

Last week I took a Paper Bead class from my friend Dana. Each year at the end of my "season", I find it so fun to play with a completely different media, such as the basket weaving class I've been taking, or, in this case, the paper beads class. It helps me to clear my head and I think I eventually come back to my own medium with a new perspective.

But I didn't mean to digress into a serious topic. Because right now I am just having fun making these beads. Perhaps I'm just a wee bit crazy about them. I have discovered all these new (to me) techniques and it is oh so much fun! Not to mention the fact I have been basically house(chair) bound with this bum ankle which has not allowed my usual activity. I have, however, devised a way to make beads while still elevating my ankle according to Dr.'s orders.

And there are some folks who may find one of these necklaces in their stocking. I could tell you, but I'd have to kill you. Tee, hee, hee.

    rather addictive aren't they? they are beautiful, love the colors. I'll be interesting in hearing how many you make...

    Uh, folks, while these look good on the blog, in real life they are smashingly spectacular! They require touching.

  3. These are really cool, MB! And I'm proud of you for managing to make them with your foot still elevated!! Hugs, Shari

  4. They look lovely. I'm sure they look better in person. Maybe I'll try that other medium idea sometimes myself.

  5. My paper beads NEVER look like that! You go Dana and Mary Beth!
    Merry Christmas Mary Beth!

  6. THESE are made of PAPER? GEt Out! They look like glass! Wonderful, wonderful! Take care of that foot, gal.
