Quattro Cupole

Between teaching, visiting, sight seeing and knitting I did manage a little bit of bead time last week and completed the third Quattro Cupole Sample.


As is often the case, my most recently finished is often my new favorite and I love this cyclamen opal version.  The fourth cupola, unseen in the photo, serves as the clasp.  This one will be getting a lot of wear.  Next up a matching pair of earrings!  This one will have it's teaching debut at Beads by Blanche in November followed by a second and third class in Tokyo and Nagoya Japan.

Also beaded last week was a new bit of beadwork that I am totally in love with, but so far it has not presented it's finishing touches.  I think it's a pendant, but it needs attachment points and the right necklace.  For the time being it is side lined waiting for the appropriate inspiration to show up.  

Also on the beading board is a third La Navette, a very dramatic version.  It should be finished up this week with any luck and then you'll get to see it!

In the meantime, what's on your bead board?

Stunning Marcia--I love this. I hope it is a pattern and/or kit some day or I get to take it somewhere you are teaching.

Beautiful, Marcia. Of course I'm partial to anything silver and the slight hint of color makes it outstanding!
