As the weather turns chilly, the Beadalon Blog Team is thinking of beady ways to feather our nests. Over the next few blog posts, we’ll be sharing ideas for bringing your hobby into your home. We’d love to hear about your projects, too, so please share them in the comments!
Beadalon Design Team Member Fernando Dasilva's obsession with beads doesn't stop at jewelry making. His entire home is an expression of his passion for adornment! Here are a few of Fernando’s tips:
• Display jewelry around your home, whether it's an eye-catching necklace draped across a vase or a piece that's fit for a queen, like the custom necklaces that adorn the statuary shown here.
• Strands of beads can enhance even the most functional objects. Suspend strands on the outside of draperies or shower curtains.
• Wrap beaded memory wire bracelets around the spindles on your staircase.
• Create three-dimensional works featuring beads, findings and other jewelry making supplies to display in your home.
Fernando is working on an inspiring new beading book, to be released in Spring 2010. You can follow his progress at Modern-Expressions.blogspot.com.
