Bead Table Wednesday a day late....

I had a very busy day yesterday and was lucky to be able to walk my dogs, take my photos, upload, edit and post on the site before I left the house at 9 am.  
I didn't get home until 6:45 pm and I forgot all about posting here for BTW.  
So a day late but here is my bead table from yesterday. 

I am working on Heather Powers Challenge: Inspired by Nature; 
this week's theme is the Forest Floor. 
Monday, my major work at home day of the week, 
I collected some great images from google and 
made a collage on Picnik for inspiration and color palette ideas 
and set to work with my polymer clay.
I made fall leaves,


 faux twigs,

 a slug, 
( much smaller than the ones we used to see in the NW when we lived there). 
 I really like the way my acorns turned out. 
 I added embossing powders under a layer of translucent clay 
to get the grainy look on their tops and 
then had to try some faux stones too. 

 I had a great productive day and will use these for another bib necklace.  
My plan is to put together a series and go peddle my wares to some local boutiques. 
Here's to wishing all of you a productive week too!! 


  1. LOVE your nature pieces. The acorns and rocks turned out GREAT! Can't wait to see the finished piece!


  2. That is so much fun. The fact that you went the extra mile and made not only a collage but all those fabulous beads. Wow. I am really amazed at your creativity.
    Enjoy the day!

  3. Fabulous work! The acorns are my favorite!


I have made so many new and wonderful friends with this blog.
I really enjoy and benefit from your feedback about my work.
Please take a minute and comment. Thank you!
