Well not actually.....Instead I'm making earrings, crazy, yes....but I just want to bead, nonstop, everyday. One might think it is like that for me all the time, but it's not really, there are waves of creative productivity and I'm in one.
I have two new designs and a third planned.....I know you would like to see them, but they are not at there sharable point in the design process yet. It will happen, but in the meantime, here is
Medici Drop Textured
I was making up a few pair of Medici earrings, from the book
because they are simple and I love to wear them and then I did the NanC Meinhardt, 'what if' and I added a three bead picot between each interior bead and then I put a bead between each middle bead of the picot and here's what I got. I can see that I also changed up the crystal placement, putting the 3 mm bi-cones in the outside ring and using a size 11 in the interior, oh and it appears that I used 5 size 15 beads instead of 3 size 11, so you see you can play. I haven't tried pearls yet, but....no, no, I must go back to work.
A Medici with more visual interest, with texture and color complexity. I love it when a lot of beads come together in a small place with opportunity to change up the colors and see the endless options. So here's another.....ooooh, dark metallilc bronze with pacific opal, lovely
and there are bound to be more, but for now, I must go kit some more!
By the Way, if you would like to experience more NanC Meinhardt 'What If's?' in your work there are still a couple of spots in the October 8-10th workshop in San Diego.
