Hey Beady Friends!
Last week's Facebook Live featured my good beady friend, Sarah James from Jesse James Beads. We always have so much fun when she visits, and I get to play with so many goodies! This time, she brought me the June Magical Mystery Bead Box and I got to open it up and go through it Live. It was a little different for me, since usually I spend a lot of time preparing projects for Facebook Live. But I love a good challenge, and designing under pressure is definitely a challenge for me!
The MMBB is a subscription box of beads and a featured project, and this month's JJB box included Beadalon findings and Suede Cord! To learn more about it and to sign up, check it out the JBB Site. I love the project that Sarah included in the box this month. It's a Cowgirl Leather Choker Necklace, and I can't wait to make it!
Of course, the first thing that I needed to do after opening up the box was to sort out the beads and findings and put like items together with their friends. That way, I could really see what I had to work with, and how many of each item I could incorporate into my design. Then, I needed to just get my hands moving. I was a little overwhelmed at first with all of the components in the box, so I started just making some wrapped loops and putting some of the beads together. Finally, things started to click.
We ended up making a super cute pair of earrings using the Beadalon Suede Lace and Cord Ends from the Bead Box, and Artistic Wire 20 gauge Wire and Earwire Findings Forms. I can't wait to use the components in the box to make a TON more projects.
