Beadwork Magazine: April/May
The April/May 2008 Beadwork continues to offer projects to their readers which we did not utilize in Bead Romantique. In the Petit Fiore bracelet and matching earrings (available FREE on Beading Daily), I've used the versatility of right angle weave with picots to create a corsage of colorful flowers for your wrist. The margarites add a bit of sparkle to each flower center and the Ezel Findings clasp/earring findings add a bit of the glamorous finishing touch. I love using chain in beadwork too, if you haven't noticed, which add fluidity and movement to the earrings. And yes, size 15/o's do the trick too to give the pieces a fanciful delicacy! You can see that I also made a silver version of both bracelet and earrings which I gifted to my friends at Ezel Findings. Enjoy these projects and keep your eyes peeled for more in the upcoming year!
