January 2010 bjp beaded bead
This is my third year taking part in the bead journal project.
Since I first started beading about 5 years ago I have been fascinated by beaded beads. I plan to make a different one each month that reflects the season. Several during the year will be variations of my favorite rivoli beads.
The January beaded bead is peyote stitch around a clear crystal 27mm rivoli using delicas, 15 seed beads, and 3mm bicone crystals. When I photographed it the clear crystal picked up the colors of its surroundings even though it appears very clear in real life. This beaded bead reflects how very snowy and icy it is here in New Hampshire.
