Inspiration


My recent trip to North Carolina to teach at the famous Beadlush brought me a little inspiration.  My friend Michelle was making the Spirograph Pendants a'la Lisa Niven Kelly for the bridesmaids at her sister's wedding and, last minute of course, her sister wanted one for her hair.  This posed a dilemma because of the weight, but Michelle tried to glue it with WeldBond, and several other things.  In the end, I attached it to Lacy's Stiff Stuff, and inserted the hairpin (with glue pad) in between the Lacy's and the Microsuede backing, then beaded around the edge to secure it.  I topped it off with a 'serrated' edge to match the cogs in the base of the pendant, and Voila!  She eeez done!

  2. Thanks Buffy! I got your message on FB, but I was out of town for teaching, so I haven't had a chance to send anything back! I miss you too :)

  3. Are there days that the shop is closed that might work for you to come up for a Buffy and Megan date?
