So for this week of Heather Powers’ Jewelry Making Mojo Challenge the challenge was to “make a piece of jewelry with just one color, varying to value (light & darkness), shape and texture for interest.” So I hauled out all my bead boxes and waited for inspiration to hit. And waited…and waited. Sometimes inspiration likes to take a nap…and then sneak up on me later. Later found me cruising the internet aimlessly and led me to some beautiful pictures of some barefoot sandals, which I have never made before. That picture up there – that’s the first pair I’ve ever made. The first of many I’d say because I so enjoyed making them!
I’ve literally had those beads in my boxes for years! Some of them came in the very first box of beads I ever bought way back about 7 years ago. I just never found the right thing to do with them until now. Unfortunately that’s all of those I have so this pair I’m keeping for myself, but I spent the rest of the weekend making others, which I will post later along with a tutorial on how to make them.
