Just Bead It.

Five women.
8 children (I provided half of them).
A rainy Friday afternoon.
This project.

We gathered, we talked, we worked alongside each other.

Like those tribal women who grind berries and boil roots over the fire to make all sorts of amazing colors to dye fabric for weaving.

But we used RIT. And water from the stove top-heated stainless steel kettle. And our beads came from Michael's. We basically cleaned them out. And we wore shirts. Well, it's true.


Here's my first one.



Eventually those got turned into a necklace.



I made two. Here's the other one.
