Misc Arts and Crafts

OK...here's some more...when I finish beading projects, I keep all the extra beads & put them in a "bead soup". Then at night, watching TV, I make square stitch cuff bracelets...I call 'em my "Zen Bracelets" 'cuz I don't concentrate...I just zen out & add a bead. It's one of my active meditations! :) So here's one of them I just finished:







And...here's a couple pics of some of the off loom beading I've done:







Some of my work is very precise, others are totally using that bead soup! :)





I've also done some knotless netting that I've combined with beads. This is a personal joy, and only done for special pals!




And some macrame with beautiful beads & faces! I believe this face is by Laura Mears. She makes incredible porcelain pendants. If I remember right, this face was Water element.


So...that's enough for one day! I hope this all posts well!

Have a great weekend. Here in Hawaii we get a 3 day weekend. Monday is King Kamehameha Day here...the original celebration was June 11th, but this makes for a nice weekend!


With aloha & blessings to all!

Your work is gorgeous. The macrame piece is my favorite. I haven't done any macrame in many moons and this makes me want to try it again.
