Bead Art Originals Proudest Creations

I'm away from home right now, so I don't have many new photos of my most recent creations. I'm sadly behind in taking photos as it is... there are at least seven or eight finished pieces sitting at home waiting for me to take their pictures. If only I had a professional photographer who could pop in once a week or so and take pictures for me. I've even been considering making or buying a light box because I find that I'm too dependent on natural light. Time will tell where that idea takes me.


In the meantime, I have just this one photo of a beadwoven cuff I finished last week. It was specifically designed - size, color, and design - to coordinate with and complement the gorgeous polymer clay cabochon made by Dee (aka Malodora). The picture here does no justice to the beauty of this cab. Dee's photo of it is beautiful, so you can see it in its full glory here.

If you'd like to see photos of some beautiful work by some of the members of the Etsy Bead Art Originals team, check out the recent blog posts. Several of the members are showing off their proudest creations. There's a new post every day until each of the contributors has been featured. It's quite interesting to see just why each member chose a particular piece as her favorite, too.

If you haven't ever visited the Bead Art Originals blog, you're really missing a treat. Every Monday morning there's a post showing off the Items of the Week, specials being offered by participating members. There are almost always 10-12 items being featured, and there's some sort of special deal on each and every one... a free gift with purchase, free shipping, discount coupons. Check out the mosaic for this week's offerings (good only through tomorrow, and then there will be a whole new batch!).

MaryLou that bracelt and cab are just beautiful - I love the coloring and the cuff really compliments the cab.

The blue bedded item is very pretty. I'm doing a little blog visiting this am. Also hoping to learn a bit more and understand a bit more about Ecard, just joined and am...lost.

Have a trip, and be safe in your travels.
