Bead Journal Project

I am now beginning my September Bead Journal Project. The first issue was what size to make the projects. I decided on a 2.75 inch square. Since some of last year’s participants found a larger format too time consuming, I went with a more modest size. Now I wonder if I should have gone larger…

I started by using some of the amber chips from the little necklace I picked up in Lithuania a year ago. Amber was all over the place in all the Baltic nations, from upscale stores to street stalls. I wasn’t interested in purchasing anything large, fancy or expensive, and I couldn’t find any loose amber beads. So I went with a child’s necklace of amber chips.

Now if I could only figure how to get the official button posted on our site…
