M…M…More Beads

12 07 2010

This weekend at the market was a good one…weather not tooooo terribly hot and customers coming and buying.  I sold 4 pairs of my hand made bead earrings…3 pair with fabric beads and one pair with felt beads.  Hmmm…these could do well, so last night I  made more beads before going to bed so they would have all night to dry.  I had a piece of cloth with a design stamped on it in ink that I thought would make pretty beads…BUT..the ink ran when I applied the glue/water mix, so that idea didn’t work very well.

Bright idea…make beads FIRST, THEN stamp with inks!  Ta da! They roll quite easily over a stamp image. Can’t wait to get these made up into earrings.

Hi Alex, Thanks for reading and leaving a comment. I am having a lot of fun making these beads. And I think the big letters I stamped on them are growing on me more and more. At first, I wasn’t sure I liked them.
