Thanks so much to everybody for commenting and hopping round on the blogs for Karen Williams' most wonderful Explorations in Freeform Peyote book! And, one in all my private favorites (this colour mixture just speaks to me) from Wendy Hatton, a necklace and earring set that I'd just die for; I get to indicate you all of the attractive that I got from my fellow artists and the common-or-garden little allure that I made to swap. This 12 months's theme was 'soar' and it was a bit of challenging for me, but I did handle to provide you with what I hope is a cute allure.
Thirdly, I'm collaborating once more this 12 months within the Art Attraction Swap, hosted by Jennifer Cameron (for extra detailed data, try Jen's blog right here ). We all make charms to swap, but each individual makes one further charm that will probably be bought by way of auction, with all earnings going to Beads Of Braveness.
These have been made by Elisabeth Auld of Beads For Busy Gals , Cate vanAlphen of Fulgorine , and Lesley Watt of Thea Components Elisabeth's appeal is so floaty and wonderful - I'm calling it a balloon, despite the fact that I haven't seen her reveal submit yet, as a result of to me it looks ethereal and able to soar into the sky at any moment. His pants may actually be product of the same parachute material as Jim's ParaCord bracelets.
I did need to have the tail of the kite as a part of the design, but it simply seemed flawed in beads, so I ended up using a chunk of sterling chain on every one. Monique's was just too pretty to take off of her card - I need to admit now that I have not removed her appeal from last year's card, both - I love the ribbon and the presentation so much. Cate's attraction knocked my socks proper off, with the stylized fowl flying so freely - and the colors!!
In between all the thrill of these items, I did manage to get a new tutorial out in my shop, called Princess Natalia's Locket. :) The focal piece of the necklace is a working locket created mostly of peyote sew, whereby you may store a souvenir or a attraction, and it hangs from a pretty chain made from proper angle weave and herringbone. In the present floating lockets day has been a superb beady day in a method, with a fortunate snag of a set of latest beads by Caroline Dewison of BlueberriBeads.and not such an awesome beady day because I ran out of the scale 15 Duracoat silver beads I used to be utilizing to construct a new Trellis necklace.
