Spring Flowers Bookmark

BookmarkSpringFling2Earlier this year, I won the bead jar raffle at our Bead Society meeting.  At every meeting, members donate a nice bead or two, or some beading supplies, which all go into a huge jar and is raffled off at the start of the new year.  That’s a full year of supplies for a bead addict’s delight!

As I wrote in “Bead Jar Bonanza,” I won that jar this year.  And what I decided to do was make some things from its contents and donate them each month for our Society’s raffle.

For the month of March, I donated my Spring Flowers Bookmark.  I took a metal bookmark, some glass faceted roundels, glass pearls, and Lucite flowers from the bead jar.  I added a singular diminutive clay butterfly bead from my own supply, and the final project is this sweet springtime bookmark.  Each bead was hand wire wrapped on a length of chain.  It’s surprisingly lightweight and is balanced well, too.

The member who won this was thrilled!

I am already working on another creation that I’ll donate at next month’s meeting.  Stay tuned.
