Bead It!

I have a problem. I can't be satisfied with not only attempting to complete everyone else's monthly challanges, but I have to start my own as well. As if I am not busy enough.

So, this is a challenge for me, but I would welcome anyone else who would like to contribute.

Details:

Make a bead, or something from beads, something incorporating beads, maybe something with bead embellishment which uses a monthly theme as its inspiration. It could be jewellery, surface design, a purse, a stuffy, a beaded object. Whatever. The object itself is your choice.

Use any technique: french beading, embroidery, stringing, loomwork, bead crochet/knitting, wirework... anything.

Use sequins, wooden beads, glass beads, paper beads. Apparently..."A bead is a small, decorative object that is pierced for threading or stringing. (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bead)" So the possibilities are endless.

Anyone who would like to submit their creations, email me at riarug@hotmail.com with a link to your project and I'll post the links under the Bead-it button.

If I am at all unclear, please, ask away!

The monthly theme will be located above the Bead-it Button. Feel free to copy the button on your blog and link back here if you wish.

July's theme is "Leaves of Change" - interpret it how you wish.

(The background for the Bead-It button is part of a french beaded wreath I completed for a craftshow last year.)

Sounds like fun! Though this isn't really going to help my bead buying problem . . . ;)
