The start of a new idea (6)

Have you been following along as I log my progress toward a new design using herringbone with two different sizes of seed beads? I just finished my sixth piece in this effort.

Here are the first four:

And (drumroll...) here's number 6.

I'm liking how this one came out! Hey, Gwen?!

  3. This is gorgeous, Florence! I love your use of different size seed beads, you've created some really lovely shapes within the beadwork :-)

  4. Mmm, I like this one a lot. The shape looks really different from any other captured rivolis I've seen because of the way you only used seed beads around every other large bead. I also like the color combo; it's wearable without being too plain. Lastly, the photo is perfect. Maybe the next time I see you, you can give me a tutorial on how to use Photoshop.

  5. #1 and #5 are my favorites. I think it's because I like the curve to the herringbone.
