I ordered the beads yesterday for my design challenge -beading without colour! My bead order was totally different to what I would normally get, I looked at so many different shapes that I wouldn't normally work with. Can't wait for them to arrive ... then I can start thinking about combining shapes and textures. Although I have been inspired by the snow and ice, I want to create something that can be worn all year round and will go with different looks. I will probably use antique black findings for the pieces so that they don't look too cold. Will post some drawings and photos as soon as i've got the beads and i've got creating.
