"The Butterfly Effect." The winner of this avante garde challenge was Bradon McDonald. I knew when I started the piece that it was going to eat my lunch, and I was right. 3 full tubes of seed beads, 36 hours of work, the devising of an oh-so-clever closure, and WAH LAH:
Here we have Sluggo modeling the piece:

My daughter said the inspiration piece made her think of a spiky cream puff. I thought it was somewhere between a swan and a reed embankment drained of color. It has a fantasy quality to it I find interesting. It was a lot of work, I don't know how soon I'll be doing this technique again, but I do love the results.
So to sum up:
One last piece to make and this season of Embellishing the Runway is put to bed. Looking forward to this one - I get to use my NEW LOOM!
So that would mean, of course, more later.
