I am in the process of making some DIY Table Numbers for my BM and once they are done, I'll post them.
In the meantime, I just finished this beauty.
A fashion scarf.
im working on a mock up DIY pearl bouquet... i figure if i decide to go the floral route anyways i can always use it as a decoration! :)
Can't wait to see it Irene!!
here's my insperation pic:
and this is just a miniature mock up with small styrofoam balls and cheap beads that i've started:
i would obviously not be useing green floral wire (as its too flimsy anyways, as well as its GREEN!) but after starting this mock up, i realise the insperation pic is made of a completly different way of beads... so now im going to try a different way... but it will totally be more time consuming because it will mean hand crimping, to make my own pearl strands/sprigs and then making a bouquet from a bunch of those! I supouse i could do the same thing with these, by making the "stem" longer on the beads. i guess i could try that if i have sometime tomorrow. which its doubtful i will have the mood to do so because ive had yet another disagreement with FI *grummbles*
Keep it coming, people!!
@ kitty wire, Im doing a pearl bouquet also. I finished mine today. I have about 1000 beads in varying sizes from 8mm-12mm. I also have different colors. I started a couple weeks ago but ran out of wire after only about 150 beads. But I buckled down after recieving my wire yesterday and I beaded for hours. I just finished a couple of hours ago. This is the pic from last night, about 400-500 beads... Ill update the finished product when I am done with the handle and stuff.
One thing I can say is its a heavy bouquet, but its truly stunning, love this idea.
