This is a first for us here at Nunn Design. We had a reader of a magazine write to us over the weekend about a project that she had seen and then created. It was just so nice to receive this letter that we had to share!
Here is what Carol Briody wrote to us:
Dear Nunn Design Team,
I love love the two projects from Marla Salezze that are featured in Beadwork Magazine! Truly, this is one of those times I just had to write-in to compliment the Designer!
I was looking for a simple, yet elegant idea to make for all the special ladies in my family as a small token of Christmas gift-giving..something that they would love for a long time, be unique and feminine, while staying within a certain price-point as well. Marla’s ring project caught my attention right away! These were beads I had on-hand in many colors and in all the right sizes (probably a ‘first ever’ for me!).
Marla’s technique worked-up very quickly and her directions were super-easy to follow. The final component has an intricate, vintage and ornate appeal (and the technique didn’t overwhelm my abilities!). Perfection!
I’ve made oodles of these Pearl/Crystal beaded components in an array of colors…one for each of my special ladies. These look so pretty on my beading table as they await placement into their Nunn ring blanks, which should arrive from Fusionbeads next week! I’m almost ready for Christmas now!
Marla’s bangle will be something a try for ‘me’, after the holiday rush. It looks gorgeous. I’m thinking about ways to use Marla’s bead component to make a full bracelet with woven connections and perhaps earrings to match?..I’ll bet those will be stunning, too!
Thank you to everyone at Nunn and Happy Safe Holiday wishes,
Thank you Carol for your feedback! We are so happy that you took the time to share with us your experience!
