Mikki sent me this photo of 'Chocolate Box Landscape', have to love that name.
Look close and you will see a component inspired by the Quetzal ring in Beaded Opulence. Quetzal is perhaps the piece I have seen the most of since the book's release and this is certainly a nice use of the component. Thanks Mikki! Mikki was reminded of Quetzal when she saw Mari's version on Monday's blog, but the components were actually beaded after making Disco Squares in Beadwork magazine.
Of all the 'Designer of the Year' projects for Beadwork, Disco Squares is the one I have received the most mail about. I'll be teaching Disco Squares at the Bead and Button Show next year,
along with 'Under the Mast'
and 'Crystal Collage'
Registration opens January 12th, perhaps it's your year to come!
