So I had to do something with that silk cord, it was just begging to go into a design! I wasn't quite sure how to piece things together, until I saw Shannon's tutorial on the Art Bead Scene showing how to use cord and an art bead button to create a textural closure. The focal beads are brass leaves, a Green Girl Studio owl, a vintaj key and a word bead by the lovely Diane Hawkey.
The accent beads include ceramics by Earthenwood (first purple), Diane Hawkey's faceted ceramic beads, an Elaine Ray round bead, an acorn and disk beads by me and the glass lampwork bead is from Melissa at Sea of Glass.
Shannon's buttons on hand, something I must remedy - but I did have a Mamacita Beadworks button. I don't feel like I've even touched my Bead & Button stash yet. I need to work on making more jewelry. I should look into selling at a few artist's markets this fall. I wish there were some really good ones here in SA. I'm sure there are, I haven't had good luck finding them.
