There was a craft fair this weekend – small, local, spring craft fair. It wasn’t the venue for any of my pricier vessels (or anything, it turned out, but that is another story). So I pulled a few handfuls of beads from the tubs of them that live in the Land of Beads (aka. the second shelf in the craft pantry) and made things. At small shows I usually set out several baskets of beads and then a few dozen small jewelry items as samples of what you can make with them.
Here are some simple earrings, with the simplest of clay slice beads. Some are from Kathi’s lovely pacific northwest canes. The rest are from my instant bead canes.
