I Am Seeing Stars

Inspired by the dancers in Costa Maya. Bright bold colors had me seeing stars. I made this necklace for my sister Rosanne. Before we left on the Bead Cruise I had booked marked this pattern by Jean Power of London. Time did not allow for the necklace I wanted to make using her Geometric Stars patterns. I have stepped away from my normal monochromatic color scheme and let the color of the islands dazzle my color palette. I bought the pattern this weekend and have to say Jean's execution of her instructions and illustrations are exceptional. Jeans award-winning Geometric Bead work series has won a judges' favorite award in the 2008 FMG contest, 2nd place in the necklace category of the 2008 Bead Art Awards and was a finalist in the 2008 Bead Dreams Contest. I was fortunate enough to see Jean's work as a finalist in the 2008 Bead Dreams Contest last year at the Bead & Button show. Thanks Jean it was pleasure working with your pattern. Thanks for stopping by! Bev
