Amuse the Muse - Tiny Beads with Rebecca of Songbead

Can you believe it - Christmas, 'the big day' for many of us, whatever our faith, is only 4 days away. FOUR DAYS. If you've got time to have a leisurely reading of this post, then hats off to you - I'm impressed! I have all my presents now (or nearly all) - just the wrapping, and a big supermarket shop to go. And so without further ado, over to the tiny beads...

First, here's a great example of just how useful a simple pair of teeny tiny lampwork spacers can be - here, my earrings were created with simple acrylic rounds (nice and light as well as fun!) which were sandwiched between some of Lorelei Eurto's tin bead caps. They were sweet as they were, but needed a little something extra to elevate them - and so I looked out a pair of our very own Julie's tiny spacer beads - 'weenies' - the most useful beads ever - and decorated the earwires with them. Perfect finishing touch!

Here are some more of these addictive tiny beads - what could you turn all of these into?

...can you believe these guys?!!! Squeak!!!

These aren't art beads yet - but just imagine combining them with a little decoupage, paint, or even yarn - these could be turned into something really special. From Good Accessories 1.

I cannot resist a bird bead. Truly. Especially a tiny one! From Teal Water Designs. 

And who can resist this delightful explosion of colour? Not me. From Desert Bug Designs

And now for the BeadBlogger Links. Have a magical, wonderful, peaceful (if you can!) week everyone!
