Fun With Focals

I have really been enjoying Heather Powers' Fun With Focals challenge. This is my contribution to the Flickr! Group she started for the entries. I must say that I have been very inspired by all the wonderful pieces on display.

And I have just learned that the challenge may go on so please post a comment on Heather's blog if you would like to have it continue.

The picture above is of my take on the Day 1 Challenge: Create a horizontal focal using chunky beads lined up on wire.

I used some of my ceramic beads along with rich burgundy colored sea glass beads from The Beadin' Path. I thought the dangles were a good idea to enhance the focal and give it some movement.


  1. I really like what you've done with the focal and dangles! I have discovered that hanging heavier beads/elements on a wire that is then strung as a complete focal is very useful-- especially when you fall in love with beach stones! Very clever stringing!
