A Bead Book To Inspire You

The Art of Beaded Beads will take you on an adventure exploring design, color & techniques. The wonderful thing about experimenting with beads is you can make one for a pendant. If you really enjoyed the pattern you can create two more for a set of earrings. I found this book to be very informative. I am ready to begin my adventure in creating beaded beads. Are you ready? The Tetrahedron Bead by Diane Fitzgerald. I am coloring outside of my normal range with raspberry lined and olive matte delicas. My plans are to make two smaller Tetrahedron beads for earrings. I bought antique brass chain and assembled a necklace with a brass clasp. 8mm raspberry puffy crystals with 4mm olivine A/B crystals complete the design.

I love that necklace. Now those can be your "new Bevvie colors".
Was that pattern in the book or did you get it somewhere else?
Can't wait to see the earrings.
