I love me some seed beads. L O V E. They are little pieces of magic that can become big magical things with just a touch of imagination. But...rings made of seed beads? NotSoMuch. In 10 years I had never met a seed beaded ring that inspired me to make a seed beaded ring.
This morning I was surfing my bloglist and came across Stefani's rings. And you know what? They are fun and unique and I like them. I like them so much I decided to make a ring.
I liked the first one so much that I made another. They are exactly different from those that inspired me, and you can blame that on the voices.
For taking less than an hour each from picking out beads to having them on my finger, they are pretty satisfying in the instant gratification department.
