May's project

May's project is done!!
No needle, no thread, beads scattered all over..
The project is about "thinking outside the box". Not doing more of the same. It is about change.
When I started this project I said to myself - Do not rush and do the same things over and over again. I know, it is the easiest technique but it is totally different and spotaneous. Therefore I am pleased and hope that the work is according to the BJP rules, and does not contract them. :)

A Talisman in My Pocket

You can find my latest work on my BLOG, but here is a little peek...

You can view my May BJP on my blog
I've missed a few months but hopefully I'll be able to catch these up during the year.

I am afraid I have not been very faithful to this project this year. I lost my job in May and my best friend and I started a new one in June. Here is my May piece and I hope to have June done on time. I based this one on the basket pattern in a quilt I made. I used shades of green and lavendar Delicas and small flower and leaf beads. Hope to get back on track soon.

June is done - Double Infinity

When will i ever learn how to make an entry? I just lost it in cyberspace again - UGH!!! Anyway, it went something like this...

The other day when I was working on this month'd button my youngest came in and said "Mommy - June isn't black - I think you got it wrong this month." But here is why it works for me: June is my birth month and I'm not getting any younger, June is also my Dad's birth month and he died 4 years ago, June is also Father's Day on which i was born so many years ago, but now it is a sad day for me. Thus - black works for June, see?

And the focal bead is just amazing! I usually work with a piece I've owned for awhile, but i just found this the other day when we were getting a yellow tee shirt for my daughter's play... The shiny black base rising into a brilliant silver, and those 3 little glass bits - they remind me of my daddy's blue eyes.

There is so much sparkle in this piece, it doesn't seem dark to me at all. It resembles a geode from which good things can be found deep inside. Like the month of June. The photo does not do this piece justice at all.

Please visit the FLICKR page where you can click on a picture and go to that persons page. HOpe you enjoy looking at it as much as I enjoyed making it. Gotta go hang it on my wall now...

Puget Sound Bead Festival

I'm wondering how many BJPers are going to the Puget Sound Bead Festival in Tacoma July 9-11, and if we could get together. Their website is here. I will be able to go this year, and would love to meet any other BJPers. I'm flexible about which day I'll go, so please comment about when you'll be there. -Joan Cromley

April - Finished at last

I was very lucky the last few months. I thank the universe for the oppurtunities it gave me. April's project reflects the abundance of life and the beauty of it.

April finished

Well, I am definitely slowing down in my progress, but have finally finished my April piece. It is more geometric than my other pieces and not totally encrusted, but I loved the brighter colors and the way the pattern turned out this time. Hope you enjoy!

May done, finally

After getting caught in a creative slump, May finally took off in it's own direction. I found this cool orange bead that just jumped into my hand at the bead store wanting to be part of May's piece. So that was my jumping off place for Get in Gear (for summer). Oranges and yellows represent the wildflowers blooming here. If you'd like to see the whole piece just jump on over to and have a look-see. :)
Already going on the June one, so back to beading.

I haven't done anything since my March piece. I drew April's piece a few nights ago and I'll start to work asap. Other than that I'm busy designing jewellery for future classes. Yeah when I'm not working at Beadfx on the weekend and my full time mommy job ( I love it), I design jewellery to teach. That's my passion. You can visit my blog at for more on my classes.

Take care all and happy creating!!!!

Aright, I'm a total keener!  This is not normal for me though.  I am just really enjoying this project!  I finished June and will be starting on July very soon!  I used shell slices as beads.  They are so cool.  There is also regular beads on this piece.

Take and peek!

warm regards
