FREEFORM NECKLACE
"EARTHTONES"

freeform necklace This is one of my two favorite pieces that I have done. I made it to wear with an outfit for B&B. I used sizes 8's,11's, 13's, 15's, delicas, triangles, goldstone chips and beads (6mm), red tiger eye chips, unakite chips,antique copper beads, 1 lampwork, size 2 bugles, ab faceted beads, hexes, 1 carved bead, and antique copper\ findings. The center is beaded around a rust colored donut. I threw in everything but the kitchen sink. (GBG)

LEATHER AND BEADS CO-INHABITING
"CO-INHABIT"

leather and beads necklace leather and beads necklace

The flower motif is separate pieces of leather with bead edges that are sewn together in layers on a solid, folded piece of leather. The center "faux cab" is one of those aquarium glass rocks that I bezeled. The leaves are also separate pieces done the some way with the veins done in bead embroidery. The strap is braided pieces of leather , with various bead stitches done randomly. Several are lengths of peyote and the side of the strap with the most beading was beaded with two rows of rolled edge stitch and then a sorta RAW done between the rolled edges. All the 3d flowers are slightly different. (I hate repeats-GBG) I really love the texture and depth. It defies further explanation.
