Daily Beading

I think I probably do a lot less beading than y'all think. When I have something to design, it tends to be a focused short-term do it and get it done type of thing. Which is really a big shame! And so despite (and because of) my insane designing schedule for the rest of the year, I decided tonight that I am going to make a commitment to do a lot more beading - sometimes just to do it.

A lot of good ideas and imaginative designs come about through putting this piece with that part I made that one time that I have in a drawer over there... So I'm going to make let myself be a little more demanding of beading time.

Here's a little of the bits and pieces I've been working on this week. I'm pretty sure none of them are finished as projects yet, but they all have great potential, and I'm excited to see where they go...

The bottom is a  simple spiral rope, and the top is the same rope with extra embellishments. When the project is finalized, the instructions will include both variations.
The flower is made with a single piece of beadweaving - not several Russian Flowers stitched together like many would assume. Extra embellishment and a little chaton creates the center. The bottom may be a bracelet base for it. I'm not sure yet.
