Bead Journal for January


 When so much is brown, grey and dark out side I felt drawn to the splashiest color combo I could think of. Orange and hot pink seemed to fit the bill. I found myself looking forward to coming home and working with these colors. It seemed to fill some sort of color deficiency in me.



I dug out some sequins I've had for far too long and never used.



I haven't decided how I want to finish these. Do I turn them into individual pieces or wait until I have finished all twelve and put them all together? Oh well, I guess I have a year to figure that out.

I love these color choices and your beading is exquisite. Did you teach yourself, or have you taken classes with Robin? Your bead and stitch diversity make this (and all your work) so very interesting.

I love your meandering style of beading, yet it all comes together in the end beautifully -- even the 3D stacks fit right in! I also like that you chose cheery colors in a dreary time of year. Beautiful!

Just the right colors for this time of year (at least for those of us who live in gray climates!). Makes me think of a magnificent sunset.

I agree with everything everyone else has said! This is gorgeous - never mind that orange and hot pink happens to be one of my favorite color combinations ;- )
