The first time I walked into the craft shop in Sweden and laid my eyes on this photo pearls set, I knew by hook or by crook, I had to get it. It was those kind of crafts that I love - unique, personalised, not too complex to make yet not overly straightforward such that it gets mundane.
So I bought a set, started making bead patterns out of digital images like our wedding photo, Angel's baby photo and made them as gifts for birthdays too. The word soon got around and friends started getting curious about how this was done. Soon enough, a handful of them got into the frenzy, bought the sets and started making their own patterns too. Really, anyone can do it as long as you have the starter kit and necessary supplies.
In today's Creativity 521 post, I'm sharing with you how I made Ariel a special present -
A Personalised Photo made of Pearls!
Clever Crafts which helped to ship the above over from New Zealand at a reasonable shipping fee. You can also go through the list of online stores to find a suitable supplier if you need one.
Ta-dah! Do you like how Ariel's final gift looks? You can choose to add more decorations around your beaded pattern or leave it as it is. Now, display it in the house and let it amaze your family and friends! I'm so happy that the girls finally have one each and they now stand proudly in our living room. Never fails to make me smile when I look at them!
Do you think you will like making your own photo of pearls too?
