|Bead Trends February 2013|
|Here is a Rodeo cuff, a Elli Bead and a Carmine Bead|
|The tutorial is in the magazine|
|This is one of the photos I submitted to the magazine.|
Here is a sample of the rhinestone chain and leather being layered with the rodeo bead. I wear this one all the time and always get lots of smiles and compliments on the bracelet.
This is one of my Carmine beads with mixed metal accents, I put a hole in the bead before firing and then I add the accent beads with tiny micro stainless steel screws and secure them with a tiny micro nut.
|This is my steampunk cuff that was also in the February 2031 Bead Trends Magazine|
|This image shows the layers of gears well and you can see how I linked the ball chain into the gears.|
I have had my beads published before but this was the first time I had sent in the designs. Lucky me as I flipped thru the magazine I came across this great piece by Molly Alexander she made this great necklace and the little blue bird house bead is one that I made. Thanks Molly for giving me credit. Molly has been published many times, she is a talented artist. Molly has a great blog if you want to visit her there.
|Design by Molly Alexander, the bird house bead is one of mine.|
Another great design was featured in the February 2013 Bead and Button by Beth Moser, I love what Beth does with the tiny beads and beautiful designs. I just do not do well with such tiny beads, but I admire people that do. The rings are available in my shop if you want to pick up February's Bead & Button magazine and gives these lovely rings a try.
|These beautiful rings are the work of Beth Moser as see in Bead and Button Feb. 2013|
