This past weekend I was lucky enough to be with some wonderful friends who share my love of beads and beading. We had a mini retreat at Carolyn's house. Wendy was there as was Carolyn's daughter, Sherry. Genny was on a whirlwind tour of the Carolina's that included a stop at her daughter's. Since she was so close, we grabbed her for a couple of days to teach us some new wire tricks. We talked, giggled and admired each other's newest creations.
Genny taught us how to make a Tree of Life Pendant. They are going to be like potato chips, can't make just one.
Wendy's Tree of Life
Sue's Tree of Life
Sherry's Tree of Life
Carolyn's Tree of Life
Genny made a pendant as she taught us, but I didn't get a picture of it. Genny also taught a chain maille bracelet called Olivia. It is based upon the Byzantine weave. Below is the example Genny brought to show us and Wendy's bracelet. I didn't get pictures of Carolyn's or her daughter's.
While they worked on chain maille, I made earrings by the pattern Antique created by Nadine Dedefleh.
It was a fun weekend that ended too soon.
