I wanted to bead some rocks in a bit of a different way ~ a way that would cover almost the whole rock, yet let most of it still show. Cover but be seen...how to go about that? I also wanted the rock to remain rather loose in its beading, so it can spin a bit. This particular Lake Michigan Rock doesn't spin as much as I was hoping, but all the rest of it turned out the way I imagined so I am leaving it.
I will make a chain for it later tonight or tomorrow over coffee. But I wanted to get this posted now, because it is Wednesday...and Rocks Off on Thursday just doesn't have the same punch. Excuse the photo ~ I took it on my phone because I didn't want to bother with the real camera when I knew I would never capture those bugle beads properly. That finish is a bitch to photograph no matter what type of camera is used.
Hope you all are having a wonderful, Colorful, inspiring Fall!
|I had to add the profile bugles to keep the mandala spikes evenly spaced, though they looked pretty good all free and doing their own spacing based on the contours of the rock. Maybe I will let the next one go a little more wild.|
