Theme and Variations

Crescents and rizos and tilas, oh my!

The explosion of shapes in two-holed beads makes me feel a little like Dorothy in Oz - so many new things to explore.

I spent one weekend at a show playing with crescents, quad tiles, triangles and o-rings whenever the crowds were slow. Just a few colors, and just a few patterns, but oh so many different results.  Here are a few:

Theme and variations - lots of variety from a limited palette of materials. That's one of the things I love most about beadweaving.

oh my indeed! all the new shapes scare me just a little... it took me quite awhile to get used to just seed beads (thanks to Christine!) I'm still an amateur beader, but these designs are amazing!
