I've been beading again! It seems like forever since I've sat down with my massive stash of beads and created anything, but now that I've started again I'm having such a great time. I'm always drawn to seed beads, so the creations so far use hundreds (thousands?) of these tiny wonders. I love all the patterns that can be created by weaving them together.

Here are two of the most recent projects, a Raspberry Wave bracelet that uses some of the prettiest magenta/purple beads I've seen. I mixed those with some iridescent lined beads that have a really pale lavendar tint and put everything together in an abstract pattern.

The other project uses matte gold seed beads and shiny silver bugle beads for a really strange and interesting cuff. I even found some great buttons that perfectly matched the gold beads to use for closures.

Both are listed in my Etsy shop:

Thanks! I've been saving those beads for something special, and I'm very happy with the way this turned out.
