Hard to capture all the dots on this rock, but I used about 8 different colors of blue! In person you can see all the variations of blue. Used 2-3 coats on some dots so it's very bumpy and gives it depth when looking at in person. Not much blank space on the rock, just didn't photograph well.
Wanted to try my hand at doing a mandala rock. Not too shabby for my first try. Not exactly as easy as they look. So many pretty images out there on the internet for inspiration though.
My favorite mandala artist by far is Elspeth McLean. Her rocks are absolutely stunning.
Taught myself how to do a Double Diamond Right Angle Weave (DDRAW). Really like how the bracelet turned out. The photos just don't quite catch the sparkle of the copper beads or how light the turquoise beads are, but it's really pretty and light as a feather on my wrist.
Used 11/0 seed beads and 3mm glass pearls. All by Fire Mountain Gems.
Finally found a great tutorial for the perfect little zippered pouch. Love the small size and how it holds its shape. I did add a pull tag on one of the bags and will continue to do so for the others that I make. Love the bag so much that I'm going to make some that are a little bit larger.
