Samples for my upcoming classes at Studio Beads in Chicagoland in April.
I may have said it before but I'll say it again: making a Buttress pendant is surprisingly satisfying, even though I've made bunches of them (and still have two more samples to make). Cubic right angle weave is rhythmic and sort of soothing, especially when you can use colour to guide bead placement so there's not as much thinking as you'd imagine, and it's one of those projects where the more you've done, the more obvious the next step is.
One only Spike Earring (my nieces think they look like ice cream cones when suspended). I'll do the other half of the pair tomorrow, as my hands are sore from spinning all day and besides, House of Cards is calling my name.
