Every year before Bead Fest I go a little nuts trying to choose just the right outfits. It took me a little longer than usual this year to find just what I wanted.
I found a great earthy blouse and short-sleeved cardigan from Ann Taylor Loft and I knew I needed to dig into my leaf beads for it...
Starry Road Studio. Both pieces were strung on waxed linen from White Clover Kiln. I really loved working with it!
These summer-inspired earrings feature ceramic crabs by Firefly Design Studio and my own stoneware sailboat charms. They'll be part of my nautical outfit.
I included an amazing bronze urchin from THEA Elements and an assortment of my own porcelain and stoneware pieces. I didn't have any orange beads to match the crabs so I substituted with red instead.
Sunday's outfit will include my favorite necklace from Staci Klinger Smith.
Will you be bedecked for Bead Fest?
