Tutorial in BeadStyle

The September issue of BeadStyle came out (yes, it's not quite August, but that's how magazines work, apparently!) and I have a tutorial in it. I'd actually forgotten about it until the check came in the mail, because I sent the necklace in a looooong time ago.

The story behind the necklace -- none of the beads were supposed to be put into ONE project. I bought them at a local bead store, and was filling up little baggies of this and that, and when I got home, I up-ended my shopping bag on the table and lo and behold, the colors just looked terrific together. Totally not what I had planned, but so much better than what I had planned.

The photo in the magazine is a little dark, so here's another for you:

The chain is copper, and the glass is all Czech (with some yellow Japanese miracle beads tossed in) -- purples and yellow and peach and bronze. I loved how the colors came together, and I love the texture, and cha-cha necklaces (and bracelets!) are my favorite anyway.

"Accidental Artist" will be on the web site soon, but if you can't wait, just shoot me an email!
