Letting off Creative STEAM


Shimmer and Bling Bead Expo

Posted by fionatranter on August 31, 2014 at 8:00 PM

Several of my designs use glass beads from the very talented Teresa Silbert of Hobo Glass.

Teresa has a booth this coming weekend (7th September) at the Shimmer and Bling Bead Expo and has graciously offered to have some of my work available for sale.

I will be availble in person, with a full range of my latest designs at the Highland Park Bead Bazaar on 21st September.

Here are photographs of some of the work Teresa will have available this weekend.

Sophisticated Closed Curves

This bracelet uses glass ring beads from Hobo Glass along with size 15 Japanese Delicas and Swarovski crystal beads.

The Fi Squared bracelet uses Hobo Glass ring and square beads and size 11 Japanese seed beads in various matte finishes. The design incorporates two closures which provides balance and offsets the glass beads, while also sitting comfortably on the wrist.

Just for fun I also created the Closed Curves bracelet in black and white and bright colours. I have a version of this bracelet and it receives complements whenever I wear it. It's a great piece to wear in the summer with my many colourful t-shirts.
