An intriguing play of colors and shadows make this design perfect for many different projects. The deep red is reflected in the pale pink, while the pale lilac is shadowed with the deeper lavender. The sea green triangles are reflected in the icy blue triangles, adding harmony and symmetry to the whole design. This pattern would work well for an amulet bag. If you repeated the pattern or used larger beads it would make a lovely evening bag, wall hanging, or other project. This project can be used by all crafters, and is appropriate for projects ranging from beginning to advanced. All rights reserved.

I started beading and making jewelry when I was 12 years old, and grew to love beads very quickly. Over the years I have made many beaded items, and I have learned many different beading techniques. Some of my latest items include beaded bottle necklaces, amulet bags, and watches. I also make some chain maille items. I have a passion for beading and jewelry.
