4th of July Beadwork

The 4th of July is just a little over a week away so I thought I would share some of the beadwork I've made.

This first piece consists of 2 strands of red beads, 2 strands of white beads, 2 strands of blue beads for a total of 6 strands that are attached to a slider bar clasp. The strands are then tied into a special knot.

My favorite type of beadwork to make are 3D pieces. This particular piece is made using RAW (Right Angle Weave). It is very enjoyable to hold in your hand.

This piece is one that is so much fun to make! It consists of Fire Polish Crystals that are placed onto a head pin with a loop at other end. The loop is then placed on the next head pin after the Fire Polish Crystal but before the loop at the other end is made. This piece is very light-weight and fun to wear!

Then for the fun of it, I made another 3D RAW piece, but I used more "tribal colors" of Red, Turquoise and Black.

You can see all of these pieces and many more at the 5Z'S Star City Bead Shop!
