Got a couple little trucks made....and a couple florals....next will be some pairs! Off to the torch! Is there a gender or age group where you notice bead gaps?

Any chance that you could post a photo of the beads before they hit the trail?

Thanks

We will start photographing beads in the next week or so and will post photos. RE gender... I think there is always a gap in beads that appeal to older boys. However, this event brings out sport, outdoors, dogs, and snow related themes, so I feel that we get a lot closer to appealing to a much larger demographic. Laura

Default Beads on the Trail JUST DO IT!!

Its a perfect day to make Iditarod beads. Foggy, foggy and foggy. I will be using recycled wine bottles from the 2012 banquet where the mushers draw their bib numbers. Its a bottle green glass and verrrrrrrrrry stiff. Then I will etch on some paws.

If you are thinking about making beads JUST DO IT!!

Practice stringer control and draw rings around a bead then drag to look like a river or trail.

Draw some snow flakes --they only have 6 arms.

Go all out and write TO NOME 2014 BOC.

See you on the trail,
Julie

I spent 2 1/2 solid hours today doing the same landscape focal over and over and over - I should have at least 10 that are worthy of sending in. I'll try and get them cleaned tomorrow and mailed out Friday. I'm really excited about doing this!

They're not cleaned yet, and I still can't decide if I like them, but here's a sampling of the "Northern Lights" beads I made

OMG! I am just looking at this thread for the first time - but I am the person checking the mail box for your beads. I am just thrilled and in awe of all the amazing beads you are sending for Beads on the Trail! This is absolutely the best year yet! Thank you all!
