New Stuff

I've been beading today again.  I decided to make a ring for the first time, following on from a peyote based bracelet I finished yesterday.  I got my eyes in the post today and just had to jump to it!  Piper enjoyed an afternoon of being placated by plastic beads, and jelly diamonds (I hear her rattling something and thought it was beads, turns out she raided the cupcake decorations instead, oops! Bad Mummy! :o/)

Inspired by a project in the Laura McCabe's Embellished Beadweaving, this is my homage....

Oh I Do Like To See Beside The Seaside

It was fun to do, and I think my peyote is much improved! Not that you can see from the photo particularly, but I'm much happier.  Fancy some sculptural stuff, and another eye project to do.  They certainly weren't what I expected though....but by gum they looooook so groovy in an unsettling way (I try to think Monsters Inc when I see them, and was so very tempted to make the ring in Sully colours as a result! I might yet :) )


  1. *drool* I believe I may have already mentioned how much I love this - but in case you don't know, I LOVE IT!!!

  2. :) cheers! :D I'm kinda digging the vibe :)

    I got the eyes from http://www.lilliantrigg.co.uk/eyes_lashes.htm if you are interested, it's not huge, about the same as a 14mm rivoli in width but a good bit deeper. It is also hollow at the back so it is a bit weird to work with! :)

  3. thanks Nic :) It looks a good deal more funky than it is, in and of itself the construction is very simple ... very much less is more! :D

  4. Love it :O) soooooooooooooooo much :p

  5. Oh, I'd love to see this done in Sulley colours. Now, that would be really cool! :0) I think you're converting me to the eyes.
