Here are my first creations of the New Year, at least my first work in progress (WIP):
The color palette was inspired by the lovely turquoise pendant in the back of the photo, shown above. The beadweaving stitch is called a spiral peyote. I still have lots of work to do before I complete it, but I thought I would share it with you.
Here are the beads:
I also made a first prototype, a much larger diameter spiral. Below, you can see it as compared with my second attempt:
This type of off-loom beadweaving is also called Cellini spiral. Here is a tutorial I found on the internet in case you wish to make one for yourself.
Today, we are spending the New Year with my grandson, Jack. He is coming in a bit and will spend the day with us and also the night. Being a grandmother is the BEST thing in the world!!
Happy New Year to you and yours!! Carla
