Bumpy Knobby

Opaque black and silver-lined clear seed beads in sizes 6-10 were used to make this bracelet. The toggle clasp is an embellished beaded bead with a seed bead loop.

I think this one is my favorite of yours ever. I love black, for me personally, and the pattern is fantastic. Makes me want to go home and bead right now.

Just beautiful-you are so creative with beading. I just love all of your stuff. You must have quite a collection by now unless you've sold it all.

Love you, love what you do!

I wish I could see how sparkly it is too. I do like it, very much. I am using it as inspiration and hope it will fill me with creativity when I get to work this evening.

What a lovely bracelet. In my favorite colors, too. I like your clasp. That has always been my "hang up" with seed beads, the clasp.

Sistren Leslie,

I am glad you are enjoying the pieces I've posted. Some were commissioned pieces, some have sold since being made and some are still waiting for their owner to appear.

Have a fantastic time in Mexico with J!

Sistren Jules,
It really is sparkly and last night I made a ring to go with it. The ring is a peyote stitched band of silver lined clear beads with border of opaque black beads. I then created a focal point of stacked beads, similar to the stacks in the bracelet.

Sistren Bev,
Thanks for the compliments! When I bead the toggle clasp from the same materials as the bracelet, I know for sure it will harmonize. It also eliminates the issue of whether a potential customer wears silver or gold or if they have a metal sensitivity.

Sistren BetteJo,
And fun to wear, too!

Bless Up,

Sistren Bongo,

If I ever get any sparkly pink beads I will definitely use them to make a pink bumpy knobby! Glad you stopped by to catch up with the beaded pieces. How are the exams going? Regards to your silent twin.

Absolutely LOVE this, as well as the others in the preceding posts. But this one has a special something about it.

Sistren N'Drea,
I feel wonderful when my beadwork touches someone. I am on the lookout for pink, sparkly beads to fill the request of Sistren Bongo.
