My love affair with beads began the day I accompanied a friend to a local bead store and saw a wire crochet bracelet with beads on the cover of one of the magazines. Having crocheted more doilies than one would ever need in one’s lifetime, I was drawn to this new form of crochet. Blisters aside, I loved working with wire and beads! That is why I went back to my roots for this challenge, found a Lisa Peters Art ceramic button to use as my focal, and proceeded to create a wire crochet bracelet.
The year I scored the button from Lisa Peters at the Bead & Button show, I also scored a beautiful “create” pendant by Melanie Brooks. I decided to take Melanie’s pendant and make myself an inspiring talisman to hang in a noncreative space as a reminder to make time to play.
Thank you AJE for this wonderful challenge ... I hope to unearth even more forgotten treasures sometime very soon.
