Friday night was bead night! Oh what a night it was!!! I chose a cab that i had purchased when I still Lived in Maine. I brought it with me in hope to actually do a bead embroidery piece. This all came together I had my stone is porcelain jasper. i had it glued with E6000 to my Lacys Stiff Stuff. A very nice lady I was beading with let me have some of her palladium Delicas ( oh what a treat this was!!!!0 These delicas were absolutely perfect to use with this gorgeous yet expensive stone! Then another friend She had a piece of ultra Suede in Black... Oh so perfect!! This all came together. I bought some size 11 beads and drops and this piece is posted below. Yes I finished in in 1 evening!! I am so delighted with this piece. temporarily i put it on chain but this will be switched to a rope. I plan to make a mauve colored herringbone rope this week! enjoy the pictures from the week. Yes several orders came in of beautiful cabs so excited to use some.
