Quite a while back, I received this sparkly collection of beads from Lisa Lodge of A Grateful Artist blog, in conjunction with her Bead Table Blog Hop II (Sand and Sea Edition). The bead collections are in two possible colourways: either "sand" tones (tan, brown, etc.) or "sea" tones (blues, greens, etc.) Lisa made the selection for each of the twenty participants. I was absolutely thrilled when I opened my parcel and learned I would be creating with a blue palette!
Here is a photo collage of what I received from Lisa:
|A pretty selection of glass and pearl!|
No, that top photo is NOT my design! *TeeHee* I just needed to string my collection so I could get an idea of relative sizes and weights.
The idea is to use just the components provided by Lisa, and possibly combine some extra/leftover/miscellaneous stuff from our own bead table. We will be sharing what we have created on **MARCH 9th, 2013**, next Saturday. We will have a list of participant links, so you can enjoy a leisurely blog hop and be inspired by the colours of Sand and Sea. Hope to see you there!
