View Full Version : A mixture of beads... (hineycon for goddesses)

While the kids were staying at mom-in-laws for the night, I got up a bit early (9:30am) and decided to make some beads. All I got done before they came home was two goddess beads.

Then yesterday I was thinking of what to make for my mom for her birthday. And I figured I'd make her a rosary. So I made all the beads, now all I need is the spacers, and the crucifix and the center connector. I've found the ones I want, but of course thats another 20.25. Course I can't seem to find the things anywhere here. So about the beads. Periwinkle spacers for the Hail Mary beads, and then periwinkle encased in lauscha clear, with three five petal flowers on each of the six Our Father beads. Yes three on purpose to represent the Trinity (Father, Son and Holy Ghost). Five petals on each flower to represent the Five Mysteries that are to be recited each time.

Then I made two vessels. One red the other lauscha clear with silvered lauscha clear stringer work. As you can guess, I was trying to get that blue look that is on Corina's new Challenge page from one of our newest members here on WC. Course it turned out nothing like his. :rolleyes:

Hope everyone had a great weekend. Since I'm on vacation it is soooo pleasant.

Sarah- Great beads today- I'm sure your mom will love the rosary. The goddesses are great- I've enjoyed seeing you improve this style over time. I like them very much. The second, with red hair, is my favorite. She has a butt to die for, and her belly is great too. Fantastic job! One possible variation to try with the hair- once you've laid down some of the twistie cane, heat it, and use a pick to create wisps of hair- might make her appear to be more in motion. :)

Hi Sarah -- your goddesses are always so cute and perky! I really like how you incorporate the seasons into their design.

You mentioned that you used clear and silvered stringer. I think the little vessel on Corina's Not Witchcraft Challenge was done with clear and copper foil, and that's where the blue came from (the copper).
