Round and round and round…


I’m making progress on my latest geometric cuff and loving the process! The colors are so bold and the vibrant “lipstick” red really pops!  I think I’ll be making up several graphs to go with this design.  It will be interesting to see the pattern worked in different color combinations. Speaking of color, I’ve just ordered more Miyuki Delica beads.  I’m expecting a shipment of round and hexagonal shaped beads in 197 colors!  With all the colors and finishes that Miyuki offers, it was a task in and of itself to narrow my choice to those I selected.  It’s almost mind-boggling to think of all the color combinations I’ll be able to experiment with in patterned designs.  Ooooohhh…I can hardly wait!  And if you haven’t heard, here’s the latest news on Kate McKinnon’s long-awaited book, “Contemporary Geometric Beadwork” – Volume I has just gone to press!  If you haven’t ordered your copy, do it now – you can also order pre-order Volume II at the same time!

  1. Barbara, the bracelet is really coming along; looks GOOD too! You sure you didn’t make intricate Persian carpets in an earlier life? That’s what this and your other winged bangle remind of. All excited about Kate’s book! Can’t wait to get my grubby little hands on it (tho may have to wash them before I touch it’s pristine pages). I envy your bead stash! What a wealth of choices 😀


  2. Thanks, Stephanie! I may have been a weaver in a past life! I actually had a yarn shop and looms about thirty years ago so I may have been “channeling” for a long time!


  3. LOL! If so, I’d say whatever “lessons” you learned took really well!


  4. Thank you, Stephanie! I believe one excels in what she loves to do. Jewelry and fashion have always been my passion…I just envision what I’d like to wear and make it!
