I LOVE THESE PIECES!!! After the Bead Embroidery Struggles of the Winter, I needed a Little Easy in my Beading Life. I didn't know I would get it so soon. But this past weekend, I beaded all day Saturday and made one bracelet and 5 necklaces. I couldn't believe the ease and the flow that the day brought. One necklace did have to go to the chop and be reassembled the next day, but more on that in another post.
Today is about these RAW pieces.
Now, anyone who knows my weaving repertoire knows I like Right Angle Weave about as much as I like to bead embroider...which is to say, Not At All.
But I got 21 units into the first row of RAW and realized I couldn't wait to STOP. I needed OUT and FAST. I know peyote and herringbone and ladder and brick and square stitch are all repetitive too, but there is something about RAW that makes me want to get away as fast as I can. So these pieces were born.
RAW and Netting. Fast and Pretty. I am happy :-) It was great beading once I addressed that I could, but chose not to.
Gorgeous agate rounds in a variety of colors, matte bronze size 11 seed beads.
That is it!
