Beaded Box Class

Since I can't post anything about my Beader's Muse Challenge until the big reveal on March 16th, and my pincushion is no further than the last post, I thought I would share some pictures of a class I took back in August 2006.





The beads were provided in the class, so don't think I am completely color blind. That was part of the fun of the classes, the bead colors were always a bit of a surprise.



The box was just a simple paper box that you can find in Michael's, Joann's etc. Then we had to construct velvet overlays that we beaded to completely cover the box. These velvet pieces were glued to the box and then we stitched the edges closed.




The flower always looked like a daffodil to me, but who has seen a blue and white daffodil?? And what's with all that fringe? It reminds me of Niagara Falls, so I like it anyway.











And just for the record, my pincushion is no further along because I had completely forgotten to go to the class until about an hour into it! I must be getting senile. ME, forget a beading class! I never would have believed that would happen. But it did. I guess I'll really start to worry when I begin to "forget" to eat.....

Forget to eat? Can that happen? If I only knew what part of the brain controls THAT!

The box is beautiful. Did you make more after the class? What wonderful gifts they would make.

That box is beautiful and it looks like a great piece on which to learn lots of techniques. We don't have classes offered like that around here...I'm wondering if you could tell me if you had a favorite teacher, who they are and if they have a website? Our guild is always looking to hire teachers for workshops.
