Windbent (aka Lennis), The Husband, Sadie the Cat
Windbent decided to join blog hops in order to help her stay current with her blog and challenge her to learn new skills and hopefully make new crafty friends. She heard of a bead exchange called the Bead Soup Blog Party organized by Lori Anderson, where one person trades beads with another person, creates fun jewelry or art, and blogs about it. Each person must use the focal and clasp they are sent, all other beads are optional, and each person can feel free to add items from their stash to mix it up. For a refresher on what Windbent was sent, go here. For a refresher on what Windbent sent Linda Florian from Lily’s of the Valley Jewelry & Creative Creations, go here. Let the beading begin.
ACT ONE: I GOT THIS IN THE BAG
Windbent: I’ve gotten into making rings lately with this big stash of vintage buttons I have. I’ll make a ring…in fact, I like this ring idea so much, I’ll make three. This is awesome. I got this in the bag.
ACT TWO: IN THE WEEDS
Sadie the Cat: I think I’ll bat this little piece of metal off the table and onto the floor. Shiny.
Windbent: Where is the other bead cap I wanted to use for the earrings? I need sari ribbon. Oh look, a broken belt and some scrap metal. What do I do with this? I need more time! I hate silver (why did I use silver?) Is it too late to wrap all the silver in bronze wire? I hate tuna. People are going to hate it. Wow, when did I get old? My younger self would have totally loved this! Rock-n-Roll man.
The Husband: That’s fantastic. It looks Goth. You should make a whole line like that. That will sell.
Windbent: Are you sure?
ACT THREE: IT’S TOO LATE NOW
Windbent: Maybe I’ll tone down my next few pieces…
FINAL ACT: IS THAT ALL?
Windbent: I’d still like to make a bracelet and I have my “cheesecake” pin-up girls ready, so I’ll go order a wider silver cuff base. No reason to give up on the color scheme just because I’ve eaten all my soup!
