How cute is this funky little tea set designed by Ziva Averbuch. I brought the pattern a while ago and have been meaning to make it ever since. You will have to blame me for the colour choice though in this photo as I really desperately need to get more opaque beads to work with for cute projects like this. I did also change the lid a little to suite myself. The sugar cubes are just the cutest and I know they don’t come in pink but oh well call it artistic licence.
For those of you who are bead weavers you can find the fantastic pattern on etsy @zivadesigns.
Hopefully you’ll see a few more fantastic things from patterns I’ve brought so you can see stuff from more amazing designers on my blog. There are a few out there and I will do my best to highlight them.
For my own work I’m playing around with clear beads and coloured thread. These ones have a rainbow sheen to them and I think it unfortunately effects the visibility of the thread, and I don’t have many pure clear beads at the moment but they will absolutely be on the to order list as it is a super cool idea and would be fab for people to actually see the thread and how the beadwork is actually held together as some people think I’ve glued them until I explain as they can’t see the thread.
My cousin and housemate Kea has noticed that one of the cats Millie gets mentioned more than she dose so I would like to give her a shout out as she cooks me food and keeps life interesting. She did also help me with my Art CV as I am not very good at selling my self or my skills. You would think that having a love for writing that I would of all people be great at it but no.
On the blog front I’m setting my self the goal of writing a post once to twice a week no matter how busy or drained I am as I think it is kind of important to have a journal of sorts of my journey to look back on and because I’ve hit the 50 followers mark and am so surprised, excited and grateful that so many people have taken an interest in my little blog. Its more than I was expecting to be truthful but it is inspiring to know that people are interested in my miniature world of beads.
All the best Lou.
P.S I have some exciting news to announce in the next few days 🙂
