My favourite blog is Operation Tackle That Bead Stash it is full of information and inspiration for bead mad people like myself. Each month they have a mood board and invite all to create something inspired by the colour and the images they provide. May's mood board is shades of green. This month I am working towards participating as I struggle with green as I seem to have quite a few green beads which I never use.

On viewing the mood board one of the images struck a chord with me. I have some lovely green czech seed beads from my local bead shop.

One of my favourite bead weaving techniques is 3D Right Angle Weave (RAW). The bracelet below is one of my 3D triumphs which I love the feel of as the crosses are so sturdy so different to how the material type feel you get when weaving a flat sheet of RAW.

And here is the work in progress I haven't done much so hopefully I will complete it before the end of the month.

Is that a ring or a bracelet? Either would be great, your beading is perfect!
