A new piece, exclusively for next September's Alaskan Cruise with Carole Tripp of Creative Castle.
This piece's graceful movement comes from the cascading half circles, tipped with Swarovski crystal and nested into one another. The tearshaped toggle is a nice finish for the right angle weave rope. The main component is a clever bit of beadweaving, a surprise cicular ladder stitch.
There will be two more colors, one likely in black with perhaps jetab2x and one in crystal and white with air blue opal, at least that is the current plan!
I've been to Anchorage, but never on an inland passage cruise. This is a definite highlight for me. So far I've only done tropical cruises, and I look forward to a bit of chill in the air, some cozy beading and some spectacular scenery.
