I picked up some faux turquoise, carved bone beads, shell heishis and miscellaneous findings/tools and this cool BeadBuddy Design Save 'n Go. I will need to get a small duffel or backpack to haul stuff home in. Next time I'll pack an empty one to bring along!
I've posted some of my travel beading on Facebook and Google+ but here they are (plus one that's exclusive to this blog!) for those of you who don't follow me elsewhere. ( I'm Dawno on Google+ if you'd like to add me to a circle. If you want to follow me on Google + and need a G+ invite, I have some - just email me).
Ok, travel bead design #1, Faux turquoise and shell heshi necklace. I'm doing a make and take at Renovation, World Science Fiction convention and this was a trial-run idea. (Please excuse the wrinkly background, photographed these on the hotel bed)
Design #2 - this is the blog only exclusive - two hole faux turquoise spacerbars with faux turquoise roundells and carved bone beads. Didn't find the right clasp for it at either store, so if I don't find it at another shop while I'm here, I'll finish it at home. The carving on the bone looks like little flowers.
These were all a lot of fun to make and it's cool how limiting oneself to what's on hand and trying to use the same supplies for different looks work out. I've got more of the faux turquoise spacers left, enough for another bracelet, so I'll probably fiddle around with that today.
I'm enjoying my time here - cool thunderstorm yesterday that really brought down the temperature, which has been in the upper 90s. It's hot again today, though there's a chance of another thunderstorm later on.
'Til next time!
