Beading Table Wednesday 11-2-11


This Hot Pink and Black Paw Print Lariat was made for my friend, Franny. And now it represents my listing for a made to order lariat in your choice of colors. I still have more to make, but things have been crazy busy and they are slow in coming.

It features 11/0s Miyuki Delica seed beads for the paw prints and Czech seed beads for the bead strings connecting the paw prints and fringe. It also has pressed glass beads as accent beads and measures 81" long.

I still haven't made myself one and I gave my prototype to my daughter to hold her over until I have time to make her a hot pink and black one.

This bracelet was created with the Artfire Beadweavers Guild November Challenge in mind. The theme is "Bollywood" and I was not very familiar with this concept, but with the help of an internet search, I was quickly schooled in this design term.

I used 11/0s Miyuki Delicas in bright gold, hot pink, red, orange, and a touch of silver-lined crystal as if silver threads were woven in.... I was trying to walk the line between the outrageous Bollywood style and the beautiful sari fabrics from India. The bells help add a touch of whimsy to this tapered cuff.
