* Playing with Beads ...

Love playing with beads.  During those inbetween times, you know the kind.  Sort of restless ... sort of don't know what to do with myself.  I turn to my box of beads.  I'm getting much better at making beaded chains.  Love doing it.  The act itself is very meditative.  I just sit there, get into this lovely rhythm, crank up the music and before I know it, I have some kind of a beaded chain going.  I used a couple of them in this piece.  I'm not sure this piece is finished.  Have to live with it for awhile.



Be Well.  Be Happy.  Thank you so much for your visit.  YOU, my dears, make my heart sing.  xx

I love playing with beads too, and just have not done that for a while, Your beaded chains look great. You can let this rest and see if it needs anything else next time you look at it. I wore my earrings you made the other day and thought of you!

Good morning, Donna. You do a great job putting beads together. For me it is frustrating because of the links but we all have our specialty.

When you uploaded a copy of your painting, previous post, I thought to myself "Donna did one similar to this." I didn't realize you had never finished it. I'm sure it will be lovely when completed.

Today I'm off to have lunch with the art gals.

Hugs,
C

I love that, and the great check boxes of how to react to your post. I also dabble with beads. Hope to post my own soon!

Flowing is obviously the key as you create such beautiful pieces it reminds me a litle or rosary beads but much much better , love it. Hope you enjoyed your class with Nina and have a wonderfully happy weekend.
