For the Bead Embroidery projects - both of these projects have fringing. This is out of my norm and Dragon Fly Dreams is using a travertine pea soup green that I was sure Cindy Tipton was playing a joke on me when they arrived in a set - but, to my surprise, they blended with my Tortoise Shell Agate beautifully. Both pieces I cabbed at Cabbing class and both pieces have Vintaj brass pieces adhered to the cab to give depth to the piece.
Then Dragonfly Dreams with the pea soup travertine beads. I need to take another photograph of this piece this coming weekend as our storm had started coming through.
I then had the Chainmaille Marathon - I've included gauges and ring sizes on each picture for your enjoyment ( for those chainner's out there ).
This copper piece is using Bronze Rings - very heavy and intense to close.
I was able to play with Square Rings 16C and 18C. I am really looking forward to playing with the square rings on a flat weave. Maybe with a few Crystallettes. But then my favorite weave is : Romonov
I'll have a small break though for the week of February 6th where I will be joining the wonderful ladies of the Florida Jewelry Artist Yahoo Annual Retreat in Dowling Park - Live Oak, FL. I am sure we will have great photo's to share along with " The Tree of Life ".
