Making Beads

Every now and then I get restless and need to create. I love making jewelry, but had taken a hiatus when my kids were very young. It seems I get a bit more time to myself these days, and my interest has picked up again.

I started making beads from magazines. What fun! I'm not that good at it yet, but I feel with practice, I'll be making quite a bit of beads. I am looking at magazines in a different way than I did before. I like the pages that have multiple colors on them so I can create colorful beads. Here are a few of the beads I've made (they still need to be glazed, but for now, this is the rough version.): Link to a great website:

With accent beads, I know these will be fun. They are so colorful, it's hard to get a sense what they are really like. After I've glazed them, I will take a pic, then again after I've created jewelry. (Hey at least it didn't cost me anything to do!)

Enjoy your weekend, all!!!
