WOYWW 181 - Something beady :D

Happy Wednesday everyone :D. I'm getting ready to assemble some spindles (for yarn/thread). The narwhal is a leftover (painted with a puddle of Pumice Stone Distress Ink spritzed with water). The beads still haven't been put away lol. The pink thing is a brad-setter/paper piercer combo tool.

This is the beaded charm I made for the swap. Freshwater pearls, an aquamarine bead, dark blue rondelles and some seed beads. The ends of the longer pieces have spiral ends. I was tickled pink to find some K&Co. paper that picked up the colors of the charm.

 A better view of the coiled bit at the end of the longer pieces.

If you are wondering what's all this WOYWW then, head over to Julia's Stamping Ground and have a gander. Better yet, snap a picture of your crafty space and join in the fun :D.

How cool! I just learned how to make a proper end loop on head pins! Now I'll have to practice making a coil! I do make springs for the end of my charms. Much easier with a spring winder...ssshhh...don't tell. :) Nan 93

Love your beaded charm and the coils really make them beautiful. The card sure does bring out the colours.
Have a great week.

Good morning, I'm a day late but am trying to pop on by and say hi to everyone this week! That's a lovely charm you've made.

Love your beading, saw the coiled end on Creat and Craft on TV recently. I'm not much into wearing jewelry but little charms would be perfect, I even think I have some wire posts lurking somewhere - you have inspired me. BJ#5
