Last BJP of this year....



wow...time surely flies! I do have my bjp ready to work on, but haven't even thought of where to begin with the beadwork...
I did find a great shaped key and had a crystal that just fit in it....I'm living with it for a while before deciding how to hang it...
And tomorrow is our annual bead buying trip to our local pow wow...I've been going for almost 14 years with a group of friends to buy most of the charlottes I use during the year and some unusual abalone pieces...although this year I won't be buying much, but the trip itself is always a treat...no drums or dancing...that starts tomorrow night.

What is a charlotte? that trip sounds like fun. Going and getting there should be good!

A charlotte is a size 13 Czech bead that has a single beveled facet; I think it's considered the most beautiful of seed beads...I'll take a photo of them this afternoon.

Looks like you will have another intriguing page, Bobbi.

ahhhhh....a crystal fitting perfectly into the key...what a great beginning...I can't believe you are on the last one. What a great feeling that must be...I have no idea since I've got four more to go...but that's OK too...I always thought that kind of key looked like a pair of eyes and a long nose...

Ooooh, how intriguing... the key and the crystal... Have to think about what that could mean... and the fact that they fit together, like a puzzle... Hmmmm. Love your fabric. Yummmmmmm!

How was the pow wow? I've never been to one and have always wanted to go, especially if there were costumes, drums and dancing... Did you find charlottes?

Do you have any size 16 or smaller silver charlottes?

I hope so, arline!

I see the resemblance to eyes and a nose...this one could go steampunk or victorian or just classicly simple...

Going to the pow wow was great, robin...even with mist and overcast there's a very special feeling at this pow wow...it's set in a meadow surrounded by very old trees...the drumming and dancing started tonight at 7 and will go on until sunday evening but we have to work this weekend so probably won't be going back this year.
I don't have any silver charlottes in that size, but I do have some tiny silver French cut beads...do you need some?

The fabric is beautiful and I love the key and that the crystal fit perfectly too! Looking forward to seeing how you will use it...
