When Link’s adventure includes multiple masks and one creepy Skull Kid dances and teases around in Majora’s Mask!
“This piece contains a story of beauty, fashion, witchcraft and obsession. When the time came to woo the prince, Ursula put on a show. Transforming herself into a beautiful woman adorned in the best clothing and accessories. This show stopping necklace made from coral, seaweed, pearls, and water contains Ariel’s voice. Why would the sea witch wear a single cursed shell when she can make a stunning visual statement?”
I have been fortunate enough to take a couple classes with Kinga Nichols. If you haven’t yet, you should find a class near you! A couple weeks ago I finished up three of her pieces! It was a wonderful week of Kinga.
Oh shoot you mean that Beading on the Vine was almost a year ago and I haven’t told you about all the projects yet? Geeze man… I’m really letting y’all down. So sorry, I’ve been busy beading, working and being nerdy over here. Actually as I type, one arm has limited movement as sweet Arrow (adorable black lab mix) tries to make it fall asleep so I’ll get up and go to bed.
Another completed bracelet! I started this piece over a year ago. It was a very tedious piece that required lots of needles and lots of patience. I ran into a dilemma while working on it. I didn’t have enough crystals to complete the bracelet like that pattern suggested… So I changed it and made it my own! So while there are a ton of crystals all over this bracelet there are suppose to be more. ha! So sparkly!!
This is my second version of Flora necklace designed by Melanie Potter. Clearly my mind is set in Spring instead of Winter. It took several different iterations of color combinations to get the perfect bright colored flowers for the necklace.
I’ve mentioned this before, but for those who are new and thought I only going to bead stores giving critiques, I very much admire the artist Laura Mccabe. Her work is fantastic. One day I will be designing pieces that are on her level of artistic perfection. So… as you have probably guessed, the following piece is one of her kits. The Eiffel Tower bracelet.
Another day and another necklace. I made this last fall while I was still in DC. However, I never thought to bring clasps with me to finish the pieces I made in the northeast (either bead stores were inconvenient to get to or they did not have quite what I was looking for). So when I returned home after graduation I picked up clasps to complete my projects.
Tonight I present the Geisha Flower necklace. It was a lot of fun to make and I love the colors I chose to give depth to the focal piece. Again, I did a ndebele chain (as suggested by the BeadCulture pattern) to complete the necklace. The chain really give the piece a bit of romance and beauty.
