I was thinking about my blog post on jewelry making, and certainly will write the post before the week is over. However, I wanted to post a photo of a necklace made tonight. This is not my photo of the necklace, but it is a creation from Fusion Beads. I actually purchased the supplies for this necklace several weeks ago, but I forgot what to do with the materials because I had it in my head that there was something missing. That was not not the case. It did take my while to bead this necklace because it called for using 11 and 15 seed beads which are teeny tiny tiny. I suspect I will need a stronger prescription lenses next year. The colors are copper findings with brown and purple beads. It is an easy necklace to make, but it will require some patience due the size of the beads.
I picked up a copy of fall issue of Sew Stylish, and found some of the projects in the magazine very interesting. Designing your handbag caught my eye, and would be open to make that project. I know faux fur is one of the trends for fall, but I have a thing for handbags. I really like this bag and made a copy of the pattern supplied in the magazine to make it. The bag will be cheaper than buying out any store in Soho (New York, NY).
