I bought Robin Atkin's Beaded Treasures book on the weekend and just had to give it a try right away. This is the result. I am calling it "And Now For Something Completely Different" because it is. I don't know when the last time I used seed beads was, and I've never used cord of any type before. This was fun, if rather a lot of work, and I'm very happy with how it turned out.
My own lampwork, in camo colours, along with czech firepolished beads, seed beads, pearls, and some little mystery-metal spacers. The toggle is wood. This isn't something I'm goign to do a lot of but I do have a couple of other ideas floating around in my head now so it probably won't be the last in this style either.
