I have been working for eight years to achieve some personally set goals in my jewellery designing/making journey and with my recent travel to USA, teaching in Orlando, Florida, along with visiting Bead & Button in Milwaukee - the biggest Bead Show in the world - the goals I set years ago have now been achieved.
For a long time pursuing these goals, my beading has had a deadline or a need to come up with a new design for teaching, for tutorial writing, for earning an income or for whatever reason. Always something needed to be done, to be written, a deadline to meet on time.
Last week, for the first time in a long time, I sat to bead for the sheer joy of being creative, no deadline, no other reason than just because I felt like it and wanted to bead.
Here is the result of my playing.
I have a friend who said this looked 'angelic' when she saw it and suggested I call this 'Angela'.
A Swarovski rivoli, bezelled with Czech glass pearls, surrounded with Swarovski bicone crystals
in Pacific Opal and Cyclamen Opal and edged with long briolette pale green drops
with a light wash of gold. The rope is a cubic right angle weave with colour highlights on two sides and
shell based pearls woven into the rope.
I hope you like it, I sure do.
