Bead Table Wednesday – 17 May 2011

Happy Wednesday!

Bead Table Wednesday

Join the Bead Table Wednesday Group on Flickr!

This is just my fourth Bead Table Wednesday and I’m really really enjoying just being able to see so many different bead tables and jewelery projects from all over the world!
Last week, something malicious happened to my website and caused me a lot of trouble :( -my site was inaccessible for most of the week and so- no BTW post :( I managed to get my photos into Flickr though- so I can show off my favorite blue pendant to you now! I made it last week.

This week, I made some more pendants… I didn’t start out with any particular theme in mind, but as you can see- it looks like the predominant theme is Nature.

Here’s the second pendant I made – it’s a hand stamped epoxy pendant that I painted with acrylic paints ( chrome green, white, and oriental violet).

I hope I haven’t ruined its beauty with my yucky painting skills…What do you think of it?
I made the floral design using this wooden stamp (hand carved block) that is traditionally used in India for block printing fabric.

I have a small stash of stamps like this one.[Note to self: Pick up more of these blocks :)]
I made a little crocodile pendant too just for fun! Here he is:

And one misshapen, geometric pendant that was just my attempt at finishing up the epoxy before it dried out. Blehhhh-maybe I should paint it? Might look a little better then!

P.S: The epoxy compound I use, has a drying time of 90 mins at 27 degrees C.
