Before i went to Indonesia, my home country for summer vacation , i decided to participate on this International blog hop event .
It's called My Country , Of Thee I Bead ,and lot's of participant from around the world joined this event.
This event is hosted by Nan Smith from Canada.
Actually ,it's been a while since i enjoying beading in my spare time , but i never join in any International event like this before, ..i just started my blog about 4 month ago :-D (yes....i am a beginner). So... this is my first International event ever ..
I am so excited and nervous....
Well , for now...i am living in the United States , but originally i am Indonesian .Little bit about my home country , Indonesia is located in Southeastern Asia, an archipelago ( comprising approximately 17.508 islands ) between the Indian Ocean and the Pacific Ocean. And we have about 300 ethnic group , and each of them has their own cultural identities . For this challenge , choose to use my National flag colors , my home country, Indonesia. Which is known as "Bendera Merah Putih " (The Red and White flag") . In Indonesia , those two color , red and white has powerful meanings , the red color stands for courage, and the white stands for purity .
Lot's of idea buzzing around in my head , but unfortunately...during my summer vacation in Indonesia..i didn't have much time on my beading table , there was lot's of thing to do besides beading...
So i decided to make something simple but still pretty...
Finally , i made this Red and White Cellini Bracelets for this event..
I used red, white and peach color of beads in different sizes and add nothing else...:-D
Two national flag Gudo lampwork beads on the picture were some of beads swap sent from my lovely partner Lili Krist in Tukeran Manik Yuks...
