I'll be teaching this twice in the near future, once at Beads by Blanche next weekend, November 10th and again at City Beads in Chicago January 11th.
The top one is the newest, colorway compliments of Petra Tismer at Das Perlament. Petra being Petra and a full service bead store, beads up a sample for any class that she will assist in so that she is fully versed in the project. When I saw her breathtaking color choices of luminous green and bronze shade with a pewtery silver I immediately had to bead one too. Petra, again being Petra, graciously made me up a kit so that I could bead on the plane and I did. It took a few more hours of beading at home to complete the band.
I am really partial to the clasps designed by Sunyoung of Ezel findings. The are so beautifully constructed and really add a level of perfection to the complete design.
Here are the colors so far, do you have a favorite? I do, but I'm not telling. Well actually it depends on what day and what I am wearing. I like them all, but there is one I tend to pick a little more often then the others.
