Latest Project

Here's my latest project. It will eventually be a square mat for a picture frame. Because it will be square, I will probably have to make my own frame to go around it. My design was inspired by the Prairie style panel windows. I really like that style but then, I've always been more comfortable working in geometrics than freeform.

I'm using an alternating pattern with a block of nine beads going towards one side, while the next block of nine goes to the opposite side. This seems to give more of a sparkle to the whole piece without taking away from the colors.

Thank you, beadexplorer. I'll be updating it as I go along. I've got it on hold at the moment simply because I need to get some merchandise into my shop, but I'll be back at this project soon!
