This Week's Project: Blueberry Bunch

This week's project is actually more of a project "update"!

I just received my Rings & Things package of beads yesterday, so I haven't had time to fully form my thoughts on the project.

First of all, just LOOK at these Blueberry "Quartz" briolettes!! Wow, they are so cool! They are substantial in size, 12 x 16mm. Yummy!!

Just wait until you see the 6mm swarovski bicone bead mix I received to go with this piece...I don't want to give it away, but THINK PINK!

I will share the other beads, etc. that go along with these on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday's posts.

Next Saturday I will have the final piece done and I really can't wait to see if it turns out as I see it in my head.

Part 1, as shown here, is the entire strand of Blueberry Quartz briolettes strung on memory wire. I have a multi strand design in mind that will include hooking it all up with a strong magnetic clasp.

So, until then, I am having fun admiring these cool beads. These were on closeout, so I included the link above just in case you fell in love with them as I did. :)

Off to get ready for the drive-in! Have a great Saturday night!
