Since the Art Show a few weeks ago, I have been somewhat "off" my beading
and I've been concerned I didn't have ideas flowing anymore.
I guess when you work long hours getting ready, labelling, pricing, pack and display it takes a lot out of you. Maybe I just needed a rest for awhile, or maybe I needed to try something new, exciting and challenging.
This is my latest creation and the design has been both exciting, a challenge and heaps of fun to make.
I am enjoying beading again - thank Heavens.
20 spikes, 120 x 3mm Swarovski crystals, size 11 and 8 green iris and size 15 grape colour seed beads, with an internal large bead. The finished item is 65mm across from spike tip to spike tip.
I am going to add a headpin, bale and a chain for the wearer to vary the length.
The ball would also look great as an ornament as it sparkles beautifully.
My image doesn't capture how much it sparkles.
I shall be writing the pattern for this and making it available very soon.
Praise the Lord I am beading again, the passion returns.
