So, I made this beautiful giant beaded bead on a whim. It's created with the right angle weave stitch. Accented with purple crystals and yellow-green beads. But I had no idea what to do with it - it just sat there, staring at me with its bead-y eyes. I tried adding some polymer clay and ceramic beads, but it just wasn't working. Then, a stroke of genius hit me: create some freeform beaded beads for a necklace. That's exactly what this big guy needed!

Here are some stages of the beaded beads I've created.

Stay tuned to because I'll be posting how it's coming along. thanks



Hi everyone, today I’d like to talk with you about Turquoise the lovely blue green stone.
It’s instantly recognizable and draws you into its vibrant color.  This stone is mostly associated with the American Indian, but turquoise was first mined in Ancient Egypt, around 3000 BCE. It was found on the mummified remain of Queen Zar of Egypt.
Turquoise a stone whose name is a color and a type of stone. What is Turquoise?  Put simply it's a combination of Copper, Iron, and Aluminum. Vivid blue is the result of high copper content. The softer green tones are the result of more iron present. Turquoise is known for the Matrix or veining running through it.  The veining is the result of water containing certain minerals and aluminum. The more copper the bluer the stone.
What is contained in the matrix or veining?
Black matrix=results in iron pyrite
Yellow matrix=the result of Rhyolite
Brown matrix= 16 different types of iron oxide

Trust Me in every detail of your life. Nothing is random in My kingdom. Everything that happens fits into a pattern for good, to those who love Me.
Instead of trying to analyze the intricacies of the pattern, focus your energy on trusting Me and thanking Me at all times. Nothing is wasted when you walk close to Me.
Even your mistakes and sins can be recycled into something good through My transforming grace.
While you were still living in darkness, I began to shine the light of My presence into your sin-stained life.
Finally, I lifted you up out of the mire into My marvelous light. Having sacrificed My very life for you, I can be trusted in every facet of your life.

ROMANS 8:28 

1PETER 2:9


YOU ARE MINE FOR ALL TIME; nothing can separate you from My love.
Since I have invested My very life in you, be well assured that I will also take care of you.
When your mind goes into neutral and your thoughts flow freely, you tend to feel anxious and alone. Your focus becomes problem-solving.
To get your mind back into gear, just turn to Me, bringing yourself and your problems into My Presence.
Many problems vanish instantly in the Light of My love because you realize you are never alone.
Other problems may remain but they become secondary to knowing Me and rejoicing in the relationship I so freely offer you. Each moment you can choose to practice My Presence or to practice the presence of a problem.
Romans 8:38-39 Exodus 33:14

Round Face
Is your face wide at the cheekbones without narrowing down to the chin?
The best looks for you is long hanging earrings, which would look great for you. Stay away from button studs, big hoops, circles, because they emphasize the roundness of your face. Most women want their earrings to flatter their face.

These were the last words I spoke before ascending into heaven.
I continue to proclaim this promise to all who will listen.
People respond to My Continual Presence in various ways. 
Most Christians accept this teaching as truth but ignore it in their daily living. Some ill-taught or wounded believers fear (and may even resent) My awareness of all they do, say and think.
 A few people center their lives around this glorious promise and find themselves blessed beyond all expectations.
When My Presence is the focal point of your consciousness, all the pieces of your life falling to place. 
As you gaze at Me through the eyes of your heart, you can see the world around you from my perspective. The fact that I am with you makes every moment of your life meaningful.
Matthew 28:20 psalm 139:1-4


 This necklace started out as three beaded beads on a leather code. See below.

  My intentions was to create a necklace that could be worn night or day with ease. So I put the necklace aside, for months because the piece didn't feel finished.  The necklace would come to my mind every once and a while.  Then one day as I was sitting at my designing table it came to me that I had some large glass beads called Millefiori.
 Millefiori means many flowers in Italian. I became excited to see if they would work with the beaded beads. The two black beads were perfect, then I laid eyes on the yellow ones. I strung them on the cord with the black glass beads. Oh boy! Next it came to me to use the tear drop shaped blue glass beads of the same type.

I felt very happy, with the outcome.
I still needed a finish.
A book on contemporary beaded suggested that beads didn't have to start out with holes. Button could be used as clasps.
Looking through my large collection of buttons, I came upon a metal button with an orange glass center. The juices where flowing in my minds eye.
The button needed to be larger for the scale of the necklace. A blue lapis stone donut popped in my mind.
I decided to glue the donut onto the back of the button, and a clasp for the necklace came to life.
