Bead Unique Tahoe Retreat

Finished! I finished the third colorway for the Tahoe retreat. I am loving the hematite and fuschia combination.

This bracelet called 'Queen Anne's Lace' is a frilly, lacey, rather organic design. It's interesting the phases one goes through in design.





I played with the ellipse and diamond shape quite endlessly and it is a very structured, geometric design. I'm teaching this as a study in the ellipse and diamond shapes at Creative Castle in October.



Where as Falling Leaves that I am teaching in Dallas is again a very organic design, although more freeform then Queen Anne's Lace.



Who knows where my next vision will lead.....

Did Queen Ann's Lace come out in magazine yet? I can't wait to do one in gold and ruby or gold and pearl or gold and jet. ;)

Count me in for Queen Ann's Lace. It will match a new outfit I just bought perfectly. Can't wait to try it.
