Waxed Linen Cord Blog Hop!

My friend and fellow Art Jewelry Elements member, Diana Ptaszynski, is hosting today’s Waxed Linen Cord Blog Hop!  A big thank you to Diana, as this is a really big job!  I was excited to join in, I have been making some new chicklet beads recently and wanted to show off some ways you can use them!

 I used a pretty spicy orange color of waxed linen cord, and a great button I got from someone on etsy who I will have to find again because I love his buttons!  I used indonesian glass in between my flower chicklet beads.  And finally, some silver accent beads I picked up at a bead show here last year! 

To finish the bracelet off, I used two indonesian glass triangle beads!

And then, to be annoying and over-achieverish, I made these earrings.  I used salmon cord, copper accent beads, my chicklet beads in a different orientation, and mustard colored seed beads!  I also used the new shape feature on Picmonkey!

Please check out what everyone else made in the blog hop by visiting the links below!

  1. Those are seriously my most favorite beads you have ever made. You can do no wrong with them! Hehehe, I've been planning to use waxed linen with mine as well. I think they were just made to go together! Thanks for participating!

  2. Lovely designs, Sue. That bracelet really shows off your glass beads so well. And I agree about that button…it's darling and I want to know where you got it, too!

  3. So very pretty & so summer-y feeling! I really like the colors you incorporated & love the button! The earrings look like they will be fun to wear! 🙂

  4. I seriously love your chicklet beads and so seeing a whole bracelet of them is wonderful! The two silver beads add just the right touch of contrast. Flipping the beads on their sides in the earrings is brilliant. I may have to do that with one of the chicklets for the AJE Component of the Month blog hop! Great designs!

  6. Sue I love your little chicklet beads and how you made them with holes going both ways!! The bracelet is really pretty with that button closure and I love the dangles on the earrings.

  7. Love the bracelet and the riot of color in there. But my mind is in the gutter right now after a nice drink and posting pics of tent rocks where i went hiking today, and discussing them with very close friends (pls google it!) and all i am registering is..I love his buttons 😛 I'll come back when the mind is in a civil place 😛

  8. Oh your new beads are adorable and come in such fun colors! Chicklet beads rock! So does your bracelet and earrings — I'm learning so much just studying the gorgeous jewelry you all created! I love the style of your earrings and the design of your bracelet — the beads take center stage and the combination you styled is exquisite. Happy Hopping! ♥ TJ
