On to this week's project... I had no idea what I was going to make until a couple hours ago. I pulled out a BUNCH of beads...yes, messy marvin strikes again!

I was really taken by the silver and blue mod shapes that I mentioned earlier this week and, as usual, headed for the softflex colors.

I decided to use 2 strands of the "steel blue" softflex wire with lots of little silver plated rounds. It was SO fun to make, sort of like a little puzzle.

The blue mod beads are just very simply dangled in a straight line that will be fun to wear with many colors, but I always like to imagine a crisp white blouse when I make dangly necklaces. I think it will stand out nicely with white.

I had one more blue mod bead left and thought it would be adorable as a focal bead in a bracelet. I love how the silver rounds seem like bubbles, very fun and festive!!

I hope you are all having fun creating this weekend! Take care and see you tomorrow :)

This book is fantastic. I bought it from Amazon (Thanks for the link Lisa!).

What is absolutely wonderful is how Lisa shares her inspiration. Because we can all follow a pattern, but knowing where that idea came from, what Lisa's memories are for that piece and how she creates it make it a wonderful story!

You'll both really enjoy this book!
