MaroonBlue Designs

Tuesday's Treat :)

Miyuki has released some new shapes of beads this year, Long Magatamas and Berry Beads are some of the newest shapes.  These new shapes are inspiring creative designs by beaders.  Sharon is a new customer to Red Panda Beads this year and she was kind enough to share photos of what she created with Miyuki's new Long Magatama beads.

She used golf filled rings to create this 3 in 1 half-persian necklace with a focal piece of the Miyuki Magatama beads.

Here you can see just how this piece drapes.

 She also did matching earrings.  Sharon has been beading for over 10 years and her friends and family have enjoyed buying and receiving her beaded creations as gifts.  She decided to branch out of her warm market and entered a piece in the Fire Mountain Gems Swarovski contest last year.  Her design, "Simplicity in Motion" made it to the finalist group, so she decided to start selling her pieces to a larger audience.  Here is a photo of the piece she entered into the contest.

Sharon is in the process of stocking up her Etsy shop to feature her unique designs.  She also used the magatama beads to make a very fashionable watch....

I can hardly wait to see what she adds to her shop.  Thanks Sharon for sharing photos of your stunning work with magatama beads!

Happy Beading!
