Project Two - My Way


Hecate's Lariat
.
The beaded beads for this went MUCH faster - each one took about 8 minutes.  I used black size 11 seed beads, shiny and matte,  and they whipped together like a dream.  I think they look like blackberries, actually, which gives me an idea for a bracelet . . . but that's for another time.  
.
I'm the first to admit this is nothing special, but I wanted to finish it in time for Halloween - I sort of cheated by using the red rose beads instead of making as many beaded beads as I'd originally intended.   Later, I'll most likely do a few things to it - add more silver, subtract some of the red, trade size 11s for the size 8s I have strung between the beaded beads and skulls - stuff like that.  Right now it feels a little on the clunky side, but it has the impact I wanted and for tonight, that's all that matters.

Next time: "Electric Blues Amulet Purse."  Cheers!

  2. I just picked up this book (Creative Bead Weaving) from the library. Looks very interesting and now I can follow your work easier! You do make it look SO easy!! I'm just an art quilter who likes to bead. But I'm anxious to try some new techniques. Thanks for sharing your work!

    @ Robbie - I made art quilts in my dim and distant past . . . I loved doing that work, and I'd love to see pictures of YOUR work. Care to share?
