Bead Journal Piece..

I haven't gotten a lot accomplished the past few months; however I did manage to get one Bead Journal piece done. (photographs below).  Now I have two days to start and finish my bead challenge piece for Scottsdale Bead Supply Store. We meet Saturday Morning at 10:30 and I haven't even started the piece. I do have something in mind for it, something a little bit avant-garde. We will see if I can pull it off.  I had hoped to work on it yesterday; however the night before last we had a big dust storm and I spent 2 1/2 hours yesterday morning cleaning up all the dirt. Not to mention the 3 hours the night before I spent cleaning my bedroom (yep, left my screen door open...big OOPS). Everything in my room was coated with a thin layer of dirt. Looked like I took my room to the beach. So after my cleaning I laid down to take a nap, and woke up, well...just about a half hour ago. Nothing like a 15 hour nap to get rejuvenated. I'm hoping for a more productive day today :)

Here is my Bead Journal Piece. This is actually a piece that I have been planning for about a year. I purchased the zippers in an assortment of colors off from a super helpful seller on etsy about a year ago, and have been collecting the other pieces along the way. I really love the way it turned out and am planning to make at least one more in different colors.

The way you used the zipper is so creative! In spite of that being a very functional embellishment, this piece has so much beauty.

Well done!!!! What a fabulous cuff, great colors, flowing design... I'd wear it to the royal wedding!

I super-love this bracelet! That beautiful zipper is a fabulous idea. I do a lot of garment sewing, and it's so much fun to see a zipper used in a less functional way.

I'm not sure I've visited your blog before, but all your bracelets are gorgeous.
