rockin' girl blogger

Bead Explorer of Boundless Opportunities of Beading, nominated me for another Rockin' Girl Blogger award.

Previously, on my food blog, I was nominated and passed this award on to 5 others.

I won't pass this one on but just give my thanks to Beadexplorer for thinking of me and my blog.

Thank you!

new toy

I had been looking for Hot Fixx beads in Hawaii, but there weren't any to be found. I finally was able to get some here. They also sold the Kandi Kane, a wand that heats the glue on the backs of the rhinestones. I didn't know this, but it is one of those "as seen on tv" products.

I decided to "bling" up my jeans.

Here they are before the "blinging".

All "blinged" where to go with them....
(the photos don't capture all the sparkly goodness)

I also "blinged" up these cream cases that I wanted to recycle.

herringbone spiral necklace

Whew! this one was a doozy! Herringbone stitch that spirals into a tube.

We had to make three tubes and sew them together to make the necklace.

Then weaved these rings as decoration and also to cover up the areas where it is sewn class in 2 weeks!
