Wild Woman Bead Pin

Ok - -so I know it's been a while since our last posting - and I do promise to get better - but life got in the way of creation.  Now that things have calmed down a bit, I started cleaning up my artsy workspace and once more ran my fingers through the piles of colorful glass and crystal beads.  This of course has nothing to do with the fact that the Bead & Button Show is being held this week in Milwaukee.  Uh uh - nope - nothing at all. (  

I decided, since I was playing anyway, to break out a couple of my old designs and see if I still remembered how to make them.  Sometimes you forget how much fun something was to make until you do it again.  I went back and re-created my Wild Women series.  How fun to create these great characters with their wiry hair flinging beads and crystals everywhere.  I also made a couple of Wild Child and Crazy Lady pins to break it up a bit. I'll be adding them to the store shortly, although I have put the pattern out there already.

Who knows what I'll come up with once I've been to the show.... like I really need more beads!
