Bead Table Wednesday
It's all wrong!

Well, that's how I felt yesterday, anyway.  Trying to work on a few projects with nothing coming out how I wanted it to!  Ah well ;)  Today is another day, isn't that how the saying goes?

Anyway, here's what was on my Bead Table today...the remnants of projects from yesterday ;)

Steel wire, 20 g.

My brand-spankin' new Wubbers!  Gotten from Fundametals and Jeannette Blix.  Can you say *LOVE* about pliers?  Yep!  (And no, not for use on steel wire!)

A lovely enameled bead from Sally Russick, sent with the earrings I won from her!  Isn't it a cool bead?

The earrings themselves!  Again, won from Sally

One of the cool links I'd won from Melanie over at Earthenwood Studios.  Wrapped up as a connector link with some of the steel wire from above!  This is my first time really working with steel wire in a project.  I've made a few pair of kidney-shaped earwires out of steel as a prototype, but that's it.  It's definitely a different animal from my lovely copper! 

A sneak peek of the way cool pendant from Melanie!  Wrapped with more of the cool steel wire.  I love how the wire and the steel play off of each other.  Both of these pieces, along with one of her cool egg-shaped drops, are being worked into something (or most likely, somethingS) for her Design Team, which I was lucky enough to win a guest spot in for the month of April.  That reveal should be coming up with in the next few days, hopefully, anyway!  ;) 

Some nummy bright red Czech glass flowers.
(I think I'm channeling Patty....)

A smattering of miscellaneous beads, including a lovely black and white fiber bead from well, Fiber Beads, a few ceramic goodies from Gaea, turquoise seed beads and a turquoise nugget.  

Oh, and yes, those seed beads you see  Yes, there was a seed bead incident yesterday.  Let's just say they're not only on the bead table, but are also all over the room.  Yeah.  Fun.  Uhm, don't step on them in bare feet either.  Ouch.

So, my question to you now is can you guess what color palettes I'm working with here?  LOL  That obvious, huh?  ;)

Anyway, please play along with Bead Table Wednesday!  I've shown you mine, now you show me yours!

And please don't forget to check out the BTW Flickr group for more gorgeous stuff :)
