More Beaded Baubles

As promised here is the picture of the rest of the beaded baubles I made.  Some of the ladies in our craft group spotted my demonstrations and have said they'd like to have a go so I guess I won't be putting the baubles or beads away for a few weeks.  I will start them off on a simple netted cover to get them going (they are beginners when it comes to  beading) and then they can of course go to town on the dangles when they get to the end - anything goes really depending on what pretty beads are available.  The designs shown in this photo are rather more elaborate and definitely not for the beginner to tackle.

I have a picture today to share of some of the 'dangles' made in addition to the decorated baubles - definitely need a tree this year.  The weather is quite pleasant at the moment but there is definitely an autumnal chill creeping in.

Festive Beading

I've just spent two days demonstrating beading - this time it was beaded 'covers' for Christmas baubles and I've made so many different ones I just might have to  actually have a tree this year!! Here are just a few of them and I will try to take some more photos soon to share the others and also some  stars and 'dangles' which should also look good on the tree.  They aren't the easiest thing to photograph but I guess you can get the idea even though they are hanging from a mug tree - a lucky charity shop find.
