Daisy Sliders

It's been a little while since I've had any new beadwork to show you, but here is my latest design which I have called 'Daisy Sliders' - shown in Winter Sky and Winter Sun.  I created these for the Winter Sparkle Special of Bead magazine, which is due out in October of this year.  I fell in love with this beautiful, softly sparkling organza ribbon in my local craft shop, and I knew that I wanted to find a way to use it in a finished beadwork piece. I chose Swarovski crystal pearls in soft shades of pale blue and gold to fit the theme, and teamed them with some marbled and matt seed beads to make these simple flower 'sliders' which can easily be threaded onto the ribbon.  The ribbon is then tied in a big bow which gives a really lovely feminine feel to the finished piece.  I think they would be perfect for a wrist corsage for a prom or an anklet for a beach wedding - let me know what you think ...





See you next time!

  6. I love these Kerry, great idea to create small elements (as with your core beads) that you can use as few or as many as you like. Ribbon + beads = gorgeous!
