Fire and Ice »
InstructionsThis was from the December 2008 issue of Bead and Button Magazine. I believe it's a subscriber only pattern.
It's only nerve racking until you get the hange of the elements - I actually made 2 too many and like it better than just the 4 the pattern showed.
Type of item: Accessory
Seed Beads, 3, 4 & 6mm in Fire polished Blueberry/Green Tea beads and light Aqua Marine. (and 1/2 my brain cells...lol)
What was your inspiration?
I had seen this done in both black fire polished crystals and another in white/pale blue. It's a more complicated pattern than I'd ever done and thought "I can do this?" Big breath and I dived in. I think it turned out really beautiful and used the ones in the Bead and Button magazine as my inspiration - adding an extra emblishment on either side and leaving off the overlay of seed beads. I think it just says BLING!
What are you most proud of?
Accomplishing something I did not think I could do!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Don't ever say you can't do something - try then try again until you get it just the way you want it to look.
