Experimenting with 2 holed beads Free form style

Greetings Beaders and Weavers!


Here is my first experiment “looming” with 2-holed tile beads and beads of different sizes.  I am using 8/0 Delica beads, 11/0 delica beads, 3 mm Fire Polish, 3 mm Druks, and 11/0 round seed beads (rocailles).  I warped with S-LON regular weight beading cord using the 2nd smallest spring that came with my Big Sister loom.  The  8/0 Delicas are half the size of the tiles and so I warped 2 different sized spaces.  One holds just one 8/0 Delica, and the rest are twice that width.  By recognizing how the bead sizes relate, I could mix and match and find my way …. It is a free form design, meaning that there is no planned pattern.  I am planning to master this technique and teach it this fall at my bead shop, Poppyfield Bead Company, in Albquerque,New Mexico.

Meanwhile… On a personal note…

In my last post I discussed being “fed up” and taking a step toward improving my life.  Since then,  I’ve been continuing to decrease the chaos in my life and all good things are happening.  Since cleaning my closet, I’ve attacked the back room at my shop, as well as my bead studio.  Tomorrow I will be visiting my storage unit to do some organizing there.  I’ve even asked for help a couple of times, something that is very tough for me.

Let ‘s all do something good for ourselves today!

Peace and Beads,
