Day 30 – Make a memory wire bracelet.

This memory wire bracelet has differing sizes and shapes of seed beads: size 11/0 rounds, size 11/0 triangles, size 8/0 rounds and Czech Twin Beads.

This is the last day of the challenge.  I was not sure I would make it to the end after getting way behind at the beginning.

These challenges are a great source for learning and inspiration.  I learned a new technique (Kumihimo) and a new bead weaving stitch (diagonal peyote).  I am so glad I stuck with it.

Day 27 – Have a bead night.

Every month I try to go to Blue Door Beads for their monthly Wine, Pizza and Beads night.   This month it just so happened to fall on the same night as this challenge.

Day 28 – Use a found object in your design.

Found these in my toolbox – they were left over from a random DIY from IKEA I’m sure.  A little fingernail polish and gold chain and voila!

I used black crystal clay and peridot rhinestones in this large cross pendant.

Day 26 – Design with shaped seed beads.

This is a strip of peyote with O-Bead and size 11/0 seed bead embellishments.  O-Beads are flat donut-shaped beads.

I am thinking of gluing this to either a strip of leather or a metal cuff bracelet.
