Summertime Art Fair Season is Upon Us

I have been a “busy bee”!  Busy beading to get up some stock for the late summer and fall season. (Available by contacting the artist directly- see bottom of post).

Mostly, I have been making woven cabochons and necklaces. Recently, I made two of my signature “Woven V” statement necklaces. Both of these necklaces have beaded embellishments at the top to hide the fastening of the chain to the weaving. On these two, I used the Silver Star pattern by Nicole Starman and added some enhancements of my own as well.

Here is “Blue Ombre“: I used blue 4 hole tiles instead of triangle tiles on the bottom layer and added a bead in the top corners for fun.

 

Here is “Deep Forest”: In this one, I added green leafy accents to the Silver Star pattern to emulate the green leafy forest canopy of summer. The crystals are dark green like the iridescent cubes in the center stripe, and the petals are a dark copper to help transition to the copper chain. I used a chain with metal wings that emulate the samara seeds pods that fall from maples trees in the autumn. This one sold yesterday at it’s first showing!

In this piece, I used a large agate gemstone for the centerpiece. I created a Peyote weave bail to hang it from. I then chose similarly colored Super Duos and seed beads to make a very long rope. The top is accented by Czech glass faceted beads and gold tone chain.

All items are one of a kind and may or may not be available depending upon how well I do at my upcoming art fairs!

Please contact me through WordPress if interested.

Thanks,
