Etsy Beadweavers September Challenge
As I mentioned in my last post, I joined the Etsy-Beadweavers group. One of the things the group does is a monthly challenge. September's challenge is "Complimentary Contradictions." For this, I decided to merge metal and wood as the contradiction, using gold-tones in the metal to compliment the wood. I'm pretty pleased with the results.
The gold beads are 2mm gold-plated brass beads which are brick-stitched over wooden rings. There are two rounds of brick stitch on each wooden ring, with the center dark ring containing a textured 6mm brass bead. The clasp is a toggle, with the last ring being the hole and the bar made from gold 11/0 Delicas using peyote stitch.
