I am absolutely thrilled with this months edition (April 2010) (Australian Beading Vol 4. No 2) of Australian Beading. I initially submitted the peyote link earring design tutorial and photographs (Galaxy Gemdrops pg.22 to 25). Then the lovely Kelly (Editor) invited me to submit a project for the Master Class section of the magazine ..
(MasterClass pg. 68 to 71) this very beautiful bracelet was created using Delicas, a large 30mm Cosmic Ring in Golden Shadow, along with freshwater pearls, and a fabulous vintage abalone shell button. I cut this beautiful button from its original vintage button card, it is superb, they do not make them like this anymore that is for sure! Ladder stitch, herringbone and even count peyote are stitched to create this bracelet.
The vintage porcelain doll faces are showcased in the 'Treasure Chest' in this months magazine.
