Introducing....Aurelia

Sometimes a design sneaks up when you're not looking....Aurelia was like that. I didn't have this in mind, not even a suggestion of it's final form, but it took shape one medallion at a time. At first it wanted to be a necklace, but as the connections were formed it turns out a bracelet was in the works! I like bracelets because I get to visually enjoy them myself.



A close up


Unfortunately this one will be enjoyed until tomorrow morning when it gets mailed off to it's photo shoot. But once I get a few minutes a second will be beaded, and a third.

I'm preparing my visual shopping list for Tucson, so I must get to it!

This is so, so pretty! I just love th colour scheme, the shapes, the stitching...everything! It looks so complex; I cannot imagine being able to create one myself.

Marcia DeCoster said...

Rebecca, the complexity is deceiving, it is component based as is most of my design. You could totally bead an Aurelia!

Oh I really hope so! I bought your beautiful book just as soon as I could over here in the UK and I am still at the stage of pouring over the pages in awe and trepidation, haven't dared to try anything as yet! RAW scares me for some reason...
