I was looking at this really nice jewelry the other day, done by a Swedish artist who uses Swedish pottery shards circa. 1960-1975 and makes those into pendants and tie tacks and all kinds of things. The designs on the pottery are sweet, but bold, graphic, but pleasant to look at.  So I thought to myself, why not translate that idea into my medium?  This is my riff on Scandinavian design.


I'm working with the same inspiration for my bead-a-long project, as well.

I don't know if you've considered it, but if you wrote a book on jewelry creation, I would be first in line to purchase (and beg for an autograph)!!!

 hm, I guess hotlinking from my own WP blog domain is not ok for some reason...I'll fix it.

Crazydoc, I need to write just one stupid pattern!  But I'm really terrible at conveying beading info verbally, which is odd, because I've been told I write well. I just sit down and try to articulate what my fingers did and I'm stumped. Hm, guess that goes in my goalsetting. Also, trying to draw how-to charts makes me insane.

For books, especially for someone at your level,  where you're rocking the stitches and way past beginner, I'd say Carl Wilcox Wells. Both books, Art and Elegance of Beadweaving and the other one.

I *have* thought about doing vidcast tutorials, however, for some of my projects, whoever asked about the embroidery got me thinking about trying a vidcast. I know I learn best when I see someone do it.
