I prepared a few step outs on turning corners in cubic raw which left me with a frame, so I naturally plopped a crystal on top, a 4470 chili pepper to be exact. Then I did a step out on bezeling with flat raw, so combining the two was next. I've had this wonderful bronze clay arrowhead from Judie Mountain since last year, and it worked so perfectly with the colors I decided to add it with a bit of right angle weave of course.
This raspberry ribbon was handy but I do intend to make a cubic raw strap to complete the design.
There is more going on in the photo then there should be, one textured prop is probably sufficient but I was being a bit lazy and working with what was near at hand.
This exercise has me thinking about what I respond to in beadwork and lately it seems to be analogous color combinations, the juxtaposition of shiny with the matte metal and a lot of texture.
But then I'm fickle, tomorrow it may be simple shapes and clean lines. What styles of beadwork do you respond to?
