June 24th, The Reveal for Beading Babes Project Five

Today was the day, the Reveal for Beading Babes-Bring Beader's Together.

I have only been a member of the International Group for above three months and this was my first time actually participating in a full reveal for Beading Babes.  The Artist: Helena Tang-Lim of Singapore.  I will not say that I have always admired her patterns for a very long time.  She has wonderful advanced patterns that I had put to the Wish List of course.  But Beading Babes had two to choose from.   One was the Echoes of Nefertiti Necklace featured in the June 2012 issue of Bead and Button and then the Group purchased Helena's Pattern from with acknowledging that we would post on Facebook and our Blogs.  The first time I saw Four Leaf Clover, I scanned over it.  The Reveal requirements made it to where I had to consider the pattern and once I completed bracelet #1.  I was hooked.  It is a wonderfully elegant pattern.

Then on to " Echoes of Nefertiti".  As I said before in the blog, this one brought out my Tribal DNA and low and behold, Turquoise and Silver.  I love the effects and have decided that this piece I will hold onto for awhile.

I sent bracelet #3 to Jennifer as her deploy gift with earrings:

Please visit Helena Tang-Lims website " Manek-Manek " and feast your eyes on treasures to be sure.
Thank you Beading Babes- I can't wait for Reveal 6.

Now, on to...... " Beading for a Cure", the next level..............


  1. Beautiful work Catherine. I love your Nefertiti necklace...those disc beads you used are just beautiful.

  2. Now I've seen both of these in person and they are beautiful in the pictures but even more stunning up close and personal! Great work my friend! Thanks for guiding me to this group in time for the next project! I hope I'm up to it!

  3. Very beautiful and elegant worthy of Nefertiti herself!

  4. I love all your pieces. The earrings are a clever adaptation.
