All Play…All the Time?


I’ve been having fun exploring different geometric shapes this past week, but it’s time to put beads, needle and thread aside and get down to the business of replenishing beading kits.  I’ve run low and am now busy weighing, measuring, and spooning beads into labeled bags and tucking them into my brightly colored handmade envelopes. The assemblage you see above is my Geometric “Parrot Fish” Cuff beading kit. I was inspired by Kate McKinnon’s book, Contemporary Geometric Beadwork (several of my designs are included in CGB Volume II). I love working with color and named this design after the brilliantly colored Parrot Fish I’ve viewed closeup while vacationing in the Caribbean!  This kit takes quite a while to put together as the design is comprised of panels of different Delica bead color mixes totaling twenty-eight colors! It’s been a popular design, one geared to the advanced beginner (one who has an understanding of Peyote stitch and rudimentary geometric beadwork), as well as the intermediate, and advanced beader. The step-by-step tutorial is easy to follow and contains large color photos and charts. If you love pattern work and color, you might like this project!
