Wonky Bead Blog Hop Reveal!


So, I was supposed to post this yesterday and failed.  I had everything set up on my computer at work and then was sick.  But oh well, I guess its better late than never, right?

I received a set of 6 "wonky beads" from Kristi as part of this blog hop.  I am a big fan of her polymer clay work and she will even be doing a guest post on the Loose Ends Blog soon!  The set I picked up was a magenta set and had the 5 beads shown as well as another disk bead that I used on a different project that will be featured on the other blog.  

I really love the colors and thought that a pop of yellow would be the perfect color to compliment them.  I strung them onto a piece of yellow leather cord using some simple knots to separate them.  I really love the organic look of the beads and stuck with other natural materials.  I used carved bone beads and made a couple of tassels out of hemp cord.  There is also a small piece of blue-dyed coral in there too.





I want to thank Kristi for hosting this awesome blog hop.  It's the first beading blog hop I have ever done and it was a lot of fun! These beads are different that what I would normally choose to work with and it was great to get outside of my box a little bit! Be sure to check out the linky below and see the other fabulous participants!

Wow, Kelsy - great design! Using the yellow cord was inspired. I would wear this a lot. It has a very "happy vibe"!
