Elegant

I love this beaded ring over at Try to be Better's blog


Try to Be is actually Sabine and I've loved her blog for awhile. I think designing a ring to be really elegant is somewhat of a difficult feat given the small dimensions, but Sabine has done it excellently in these rich jewel tones. Sabine also has an excellent eye with the camera so her photos are always stunning.

And while you're persusing, look at the excellent cuff designed by Carol over at Sandfibers.



In Carol's Etsy shop you can see the same mirrored swirls in orange and silver. It is so hard for me to find time to do beadwork that is not directly related to my own design work and sample making, but man this cuff is gorgeous, who knows?

That ring is gorgeous! Now I have to get it out of my mind as I promised to design a ring for my December class and I don't want to copycat. It was seeing Sandfiber's work on Etsy 18 months ago that originally got me interested in bead weaving. I love her designs.

Sabine is such an amazing talent! I was thrilled to see you feature her rings...and then doubly so when I saw my design here as well. Thank you, Marcia! :D

Thank you so much Marcia! I am very honoured!

And I must confess, that I'm addicted to Carols patterns.... ;-))
