I am super excited to show you what I made with Unique Laser Designs today. There are a lot of pictures so get ready! :)
I made chimes! Here is a picture of the chimes. I will show you what I was inspired by and my different "findings" that add an eclectic flair.
So I put this aside and get out silver beads and some beading wire. Alert-I do not make jewelry but I have a few little things from projects and Halloween costumes-that's how I have some of these things. :)
I start tying knots and then I strung about 21 beads and tied it to the other side of the flower. I did this all the way around the frame. This is tedious but I loved the result-so totally worth it! :)
There is movement in these beads which is perfect for chimes. I used several strands too-it was not one long strand of wire that did all of these scallops.
The next step is to pick what fun things your are going to string onto the chimes. This was super hard for me. So many fun little things to choose from!
In this picture you can see the little white beads. For the string here I used black embroidery floss-with all of the strands. These beads have big enough holes to fit over the floss. Then I added bigger beads and a charm. This idea of tying the floss to the frame first came halfway. I was doing the strings then tying them on. The creative process isn't always a streamlined process. ;)
