I am working on a prom bracelet for Grandaughter Madison, her dress is black and sparkly.
It is about half done. As you can see I work in a bead tray to contain the little suckers. Black is hard on my eyes so I work at the dining room table with the natural light coming over my shoulder and the light above the table. I can work on it at night but my eyes don’t like the strain. I am using black beads and silver beads. The blue bead on the end is a stopper bead, it will be removed and the thread will secure a button that is part of the bracelet closure.
I ordered beads for Paige’s prom bracelet, her gown is silver and gold…and the design is still in my head. I am also thinking up a design for Noah to give to his date…her dress is sparkly and baby blue.
I work with Delica Beads size 11 with a number 10 beading needle in a Even Peyote Stitch. I like the Peyote stitch, the beads interlock as you add one after another.
I keep all my Delica Bead supplies in a small plastic tote that is just big enough for my tray to fit in at the top of all the supplies. I order all my beads online. My friend Nellie is the one who got me started in this bead hobby.
