Bead Table Wednesday

This is my first time participating in BTW.  What took me so long?  Two reasons actually.  First, Wednesdays are not usually a day that I get to sit at my bead table.  My son has a minimum of two, sometimes three therapy appointments and by the time I get a chance to get into my studio Wednesday is almost done.  What makes today different though, is that I'm actually writing this on Tuesday night and scheduling it for the morning.   What can I say, I'm a cheater. ;-)  The other reason is that my bead table usually looks like a tornado hit it.  I have noticed lately however, that I am not the only one with a bead table that's not exactly artfully arranged.  That being said, I'm not actually going to show you my bead table(s) today because as I write this it's getting too dark to take a good picture so I will move some of what is on my table to my light tent.

Here is a piece that I've been working on.  I've been experimenting with waxed linen lately.  So far I haven't produced anything that I'm thrilled with but I keep trying.  I found this pendant at Michaels on the weekend and thought it would work well with the tan waxed linen I had sitting on my table.

Here are a couple of pendants that I bought recently.  I'm just waiting for some matching gemstone beads that I bought to arrive in the mail.  I'm hoping to whip these up into necklaces soon.

I also purchased a new photo prop this week.  A nice big cup and saucer.  All of my photo props are white and I thought this would be a nice fit. 

Photo Prop
Makes me feel like a latte...

I've already used it for a few photos.

Available in my Etsy store.

Happy Tuesday, I mean Wednesday everyone! ;-)


  1. Good on you for joining in,sounds like you have a busy schedule. I feel sure a lot of people shoot their photos early so they can post on a Wednesday, we all lead busy lives and I'm sure that doesn't flout any' 'rules'.
    I love the colours in your first necklace, but I love anything with a dash of turquoise!

  2. I really like the necklace you are working on - those green beads = love. And those damselfly earrings are really pretty.

    My nephew has worked with Autistic kids for 20 years. Intense days, glad you find some time for you.

  3. Love your posts Lisa! I also love your new "prop" what a great idea! I have to progress, my props consist of one white and one black piece of felt. LOL.

    And I lovvvvee those earrings! Too cute!

  4. The work in progress is looking great. :) I love that white cup and saucer! Fantastic idea! Earrings are so hard to photograph, I find, but that picture you took of them on that cup looks fantastic. :D

  5. Great find, the cup works perfectly! The start of your necklace is beautiful.

  6. Lisa, I really like what you've got going on your bead table! The colors have a deep-dark-mysterious look to them and I know your finished necklace will be stunning! I missed participating this time around as I truly do not have any projects in the works. Would make a very boring Bead Table photo. :-)

  7. Your bead table is soo tidy and organised! I love the cup prop too, I'm always struggling for prop ideas :-)

  8. I pulled out the tons of waxed linen I've had for ages and messed with it this weekend, too!


Your comments make me smile. :-)
