Further Additions to the Bead Loomed Base
Written by Erin Simonetti
I am so pleased with how well my newly discovered techniques and my ‘mind’s eye’ are working so well together! Each part, or petal and leaf, are edged with 11/0 Toho Silver Permanent Finish Glass Beads. Before being secured in to place, I sew a 6/0 Toho Silver Perm Glass Bead to the back so I can keep the proper depth of field for each addition.
There is so much more I will be creating, using new ideas, for this necklace. Completing the total look of the Lotus is only my first goal. I’ll be working on some unique ideas for the upper portion of each strap side.
The warp weights are still sitting patiently until I can start the straps! Again, the Mirrix had so much to do with being able to complete my new and different design ideas. Once the Lotus is totally assembled, I’ll be working more with the warp weights!
I have also been drawing out a finish for below the Lotus. However, I’ll think on that one a bit more! The freedom of these warps are giving me so much to think about!
