SneakPeek BSBP-BeadSoupBlogParty And BTW-BeadTableWednesday

On Saturday the Bead Soup Blog Party is on. I'm still in the middle of putting my piece together. It's been really tough on me this one. I've struggled with finding a design that I am pleased with. And I really hope this one will come out good and nice looking in the end. Here is a little sneak peek anyway. Only half done ...

Marcie Abner of LaBellaJoya has designed a great looking bracelet with Tila beads. I wrote about it before here on my blog.
I bought the tutorial and some beads that arrived on monday. Unfortunately I had miscalculated the amounts, so I didn't have enough beads of one colour for one bracelet. Being really keen on having a go anyway, I came up with this "every other colour" solution.
And went and ordered more Tila beads last night. Larger amounts and more colours.

If you haven't been to Marcie's blog yet I strongly recommend it. Lots of inspiration there.

Hope to see you again on Saturday!

I think the two-tone version looks awesome! Ingenuity...I love it! Can you believe I'm still waiting on an order of Tilas that I put on on the 8th! I'm crossing my fingers that they get here today or tomorrow! Thanks again for the picture of your bracelet, it's beautiful!

Thank you Marcie. Hope your beads arrive soon. I made my latest order from an American shop I've never used before. Hope they prove to be as good as they seem. Or are they the shop you ordered from, and I will have to wait? I'm shure you know of them. Huge stock. My previous favourite shop for Japanese seed beads is a Swedish one called Zionesse. But they are closing down unfortunately. So I've turned to the US now. Wanna have lots of colours and finishes to choose from.

Sally, you're gonna love it. Are you gonna try other colors?I'm wanna see it.
