We had too much fun this week! We strung a two tone necklace that was inspired by one of our favorite fashionistas. We threw a beading party and celebrated two hole beads. And we got into the happy haunted spirit of Halloween with two spooky spiders. This recap is all treats and no tricks. We are sure you are going to find a compulsion to create with us. Come get a handful of sweet inspiration.
And Just Like That, we found ourselves inspired by another necklace design from one of our favorite shows. Kristen kicked off this week with a design she figured Carrie Bradshaw would love. Kristen's two tone design is elegant and easy to make. Follow along on her free spirited tutorial.
Sara threw a beading party with Tricia Giazzon. Learn how to make a gorgeous bracelet with two hole beads. This colorful jewelry project has lots of possibilities. Make a seasonal design or string a bracelet that you can wear all year 'round.
Kristen and Sara gave us a lively Great Bead Extravaganza Spotlight Day demonstration. The two made spiders with Craft Wire and beads. This video was soooo much fun. We laughed about how big Kristen's spider was and how Sara made a dainty and charming eight legged friend. These spiders are perfect for Christmas or Halloween. Make your own design and post it on our VIB group - we would love to see your work!
