Art Bead Scene Challenge for June

Above photo of my beading in progress.

My entry for this month's Art Bead Scene Challenge is a free form peyote stitch necklace featuring my handmade ceramic beads. The copper swirl beads that hang from the center and sides are wire wrapped with my own torched copper ball end pins. The central beaded flowers are ringed in tiny Tangerine beads. These colors are all muted expressions of the bright colors in our inspiration piece, Farbstudie Quadrate by Wassilly Kandinsky.

  2. MARY!! I love, love, love this....I just love that freeform style! I entered the "Use The Muse II" challenge, so I think I'm going to try the freeform style with some beading. I ordered your instructions a few weeks ago so I thought I'd try it out! I really admire your work, it's awesome! BTW, the raku beads I bought from you are KILLER, my favorite, and I don't see a lot of them around....I wish you made them in every color!! They rock!
