Toronto Public Library - United Way Craft Sale

Tomorrow, Nov 16,  marks my second craft sale. Last year I did the small craft sale at the Toronto Public Library United Way Talent Show. This year the Craft Sale is its own event as part of the fund raising Library staff do for the United Way. Along with a collection of creative library staffers we will be selling our creations at the North York Central Library from 12 - 7 pm.

I will have a small Christmas tree full of my little netted snowflakes.

Here is a selection of some of the necklaces that will be for sale. 

I will have earrings and pendants as well.

Follow this link to see some of the offerings of my co-workers.

I hope that those of you in the area will stop by and see the amazing creativity of library staffers and make a start at your holiday shopping.

Have a fabulous weekend.

Cup of Bead Soup - Reveal

It is finally reveal day for the Cup of Bead Soup Vintage Lucite Beads. It was organized by the bead soup guru, Lori Anderson,with beads provided by Crystal of Bead Happily Ever After. I was one of the 4 beaders selected.
Here are the beads as they arrived
Original ideas that I layed out
Final design with removable pendant
With pendant removed
Necklace only
I added some metallic beads, Swarovski crystals, jump rings and large lobsters claws.

It was interesting to work with a colour palette that is not my norm, especially the use of gold accents.

Take some time to check out the amazing work of the other beaders. 
Big thanks to Lori and Crystal!!!

Happy Beading!!
