If you're at all like me, you probably miss a good number of your friends' and acquaintances' posts on Facebook. I try to keep up with them, but it's nearly impossible with the massive list of friends I have (most of whom I've never met, but we share a common art form - beadweaving).
One post that happened to catch my eye was by Kristi Bowman, the polymer clay artist behind KristiBowmanDesign on Etsy. Kristi had created a new batch of polymer clay beads and posted pictures of several sets of them. I think what attracted me to the post was that she had called them "wonky beads." How could you possibly resist reading a post about wonky beads?
Her post was all about doing a Wonky Bead Blog Hop, with each participant purchasing one set of the wonky beads and using them in a project. There were several sets of the beads available; you can see some of them on her original post.
I decided it would be fun to do, and today's the reveal!
As you can see, I opted to track down some of my Czech seed beads with their beautiful picasso finish to coordinate with the beads. After finding the perfect beads in my stash, I crocheted a rope that's a blend of the three colors -- mostly taupe/brown with sprinkles of turquoise and dark red.
Head over to Kristi's blog to visit the other participants' blogs and see what they did with their wonky beads! :-)
