I have been hoarding beads too, since I started with polymer clay crafting. I use them as accents to my finished pieces. While I used to buy smaller beads, I had to add bigger ones as some friends started ordering accessories. With my growing loot, I thought of creating elastic bracelets for some of my favorite girls – the kids of my friends. They served as my daughter’s gifts to them during our
post-Halloween/ pre-Christmas party early this month. Take a look:
Initially, I found the task challenging but with some researching, I discovered how to do this fast. I thoroughly enjoyed this, especially the picking of color combinations which are pleasing to the eyes. As a digital scrapbooker, choosing colors was an easy task since all of the kits I use have pre-determined color combinations. Now that I work with clay (and beads), I am trying to study and read about nice color palette in order to create a pleasing look. And it has been a fun journey!
