No, I’m not talking about aliens, UnFinished Objects. Or bead work in my case. Back the other week while I was cleaning I ended up with a basket of bits and bobs. Things to finish, pull apart, add to…
What I pull out of this basket may just need a little tweaking to finish it. It might be a focal bead in a bag that I’ve added beads to that might work together, or it might be something to fully pull apart and disperse the beads elsewhere, using the focal or beads elsewhere.
Last night I decided I had to get onto it, and pulled out 3 items. Different colours, different styles. And definitely, different when they are finished.
The before pictures..
A little tweaking here…
Adding some dangles and a chain and/or ribbon here….
And combining the two to make… I’m thinking maybe a focal point of a necklace…
Time to get to work.
Several hours later…..
All done, I think I was in a chain mood today.
From the top we have:
I added a toggle near the pendant that can be used as needed, while blending with the design, and added ribbon for the back half where it sits on your neck.
Next came turquoise. I had so much
trouble, fun, no confusion with this one. I made it up several ways, then on photographing it decided it didn’t look right so I changed it again. Happy with this result.
And lastly, the red and blue beads with chains. This was one chunky bracelet, then I made it two and finally gave up on it, as I didn’t like it anymore.
I added chunky silver foil-look chain for a simple summer necklace. It’s quite short, that will sit round the collar of a tee shirt.
i took out 3 links from each side after the picture was taken, so it is a bit shorter than what this shows.
Happy UFO day 🙂 and til my next one, what UFO’s do you have to work on?
