I challenged myself to try this pattern, and it was done in under 30 minutes. Thanks to the beadaholique video I mentioned in my last post it was so easy. BUT! I was in love with the first row so I'm tearing the bracelet out and making it my way.
Oh and believe it or not I used seed beads from my stash and had an astonishing one seed bead left when it was complete. Can you believe it?

I actually started and finished a project with my first honeycomb beads in a single afternoon.
Hope you enjoy the new honeycomb beads as much as I do. When I get more I'll try the bracelet Beadaholique posted on youtube. Maybe I'll try it in Mardi Gras colors. What do plan to do with honeycomb beads?

I won this Shelley Nybakke kit when I attended her class. I now love metal seed beads and right angle weave. I am, however, no more fond of a short needle than I was before. Check out Shelley's kits and patterns on etsy. Search for her shop Sturdy Girl Designs. If you choose a pattern instead of a kit Bead Parlor Beads on Etsy has the metal seed beads and English cuts you need to complete your own "Don't Ruffle my Feathers" necklace.
Now I am off to give CRAW a try. Wonder if this is another stitch I already know, but didn't have a name for when working it.
What are you working on?

Thanks to my faster paced life since our last move
most of my creative sharing is done on Instagram.
I would like to share these with as many people as possible
because I love the Bead It Forward project.
So here are some Bead It Forward 2016 patterns for the theme:
SPACE: Out There Somewhere, There's a Cure.
|Since there is no reason to reinvent the wheel the next two were found, not created, by me.|
|Find Jupiter on the Bead It Forward pattern page.|
This one, Saturn, came from Pinterest.
I'm working on what will be a four part sun.
Anybody know how they create those 4 part patterns?
I've shared my peyote solar system with you...
