A Geometric Experiment…

Azteca_GeometricBeadedBangle_BarbaraBriggsAs eager as I am to work other geometric designs, (Double Helix, Pyramids, and others shown Contemporary Geometric Beadwork – Volume 1), I  feel I still have more exploration to do with Wings.  I wanted to try designing a piece that had closely spaced increases composed of uneven segments.   Starting with seventy-five units of modified right angle weave, I increased in every six and nine stitches alternately, with each nine stitch segment having a diamond patterned design and the six stitch segments having a more linear pattern.  The result  is a rather chaotic, skewed set of Wings. Delica beads in vivid shades convey energy and excite the eye while petite disks of bronze metal clay topped with Swarovski Lochrosen crystals and metallic bronze 11/0 seed beads embellish the MRAW band.  I’m pleased with this piece – it has a feeling of Wings gone wild on LSD!  I’ve titled this piece “Azteca”.
