Kristi Bowmans Wonky Bead Blog Hop


Kristi made several batches of her wonderful Wonky Polymer beads. And to celebrate she is hosting a blog hop.  We chose the primary color and Kristi chose the rest of the set for us. I chose the red set and below is a photo of the beads I received. Aren't they fabulous?! And for once, I already had a design plan in mind.


My twin sister takes lots of trips to other countries and always brings back beads for me. In return she asks that I make a necklace that represents the country she visited using the beads she brought back.
This time she wanted a necklace representing Africa, and this is the necklace I made.

It includes Kristi's polymer beads, African Green Heart Beads, and tan and brown discs from Africa. I chose a simple brass chain and lobster clasp so as not to detract from the beads.  I am thrilled with how well Kristi's beads worked with the African theme.


Thanks so much for stopping by.  Be sure to check out Kristi's etsy site to see her wonderful polymer beads!
