soutache for sadie

I love buying clothes for my goddaughter Sadie
and if I get a chance to add my own touch , it's a lot of fun

a little soutache cord from dazzle-it , some beads and wooden buttons,
 even a hair clip transformed in no time into this cute outfit
and the smile on Sadie's face , priceless!!!

abalone and soutache necklace

ever since my friend carmi introduced me to soutache cord by dazzle-it
I'm totally addicted!!
while searching through my stash I came across some
abalone shells I purchased a few years ago
they worked perfectly with the taupe and beige cord
a few pearls and beads and I was on my way to creating these 2 necklaces

featuring fire and ice agate beads

 ever since my friend carmi introduced me to
the fire and ice agate bead line from dazzle it
I've been incorporating them in my wire work
above a simple shape featuring round and flat beads

one stone is a great feature in this butterfly shape
and below my fish looks great with this kumihimo  braid my by carmi

body in motion

I really love the simplicity of this sculpture
this basic dance pose was created with wire, foil, masking tape and gauze
covered in a layer of green powertex and highlighted by using stone art
the texture shows really shows off the form
the wood base was covered with cheesecloth and green powertex
and dry brushed with white powertex
the texture is amazing
