Orange ruffles

Just a very short post to say that my latest piece ‘Nasturtium Ring’ is currently featured in the Etsy Beadweaving Team’s May Challenge.  It’s a continuous brickwork piece, with a teeny size 15 seed bead ring band that merges, then expands with huge numbers of increases (and some help from some 11s near the edge) to form a ruffled disc.  It is most certainly a statement piece, not something for everyday (unless your days involve less washing up, cleaning and coping with small children than mine).

You can see the other entries on the blog here, and even vote for your favourite.  Or search ‘EBWC’ on Etsy and they will all pop up there (apart from any that have already sold), and you can read about what aspects of Chihuly’s work inspired us all.  Enjoy, & happy beading!
