Cathedral Inchie

I got to spend the entire day stuck in the house, forcing myself to bead work, due to the fact that it snowed all day!  I know what your thinking, and yes, it was torturous!!  LOL  I got quite a bit done on the next necklace and of course spent a good amount of time drooling over  surfing the internet for bead work. 

I also got my inchie done, I really loved this one.  The colors were exciting to work with and fun for me.  Mostly because I have a boatload of the gold and silver beads used in this inchie.  I bought them both for 2 different projects that fell through, (so far, who knows I might get to them someday lol).  Both packages of beads have almost 21,000 beads in each!  Yea I have a problem lol. 

In 2012, I made something similar to how this one turned out, the theme then was Ceiling.  Here it is.  It was made to be like the mosaics on the ceilings of the likes of cathedrals and old churches.

For this weeks Inchie I couldn't do the same thing, but my first thought was something similar.  Something like stained glass windows in a Cathedral.  So that was what I went with for this inchie.  Using the gold and silver as the metal that is between the panes of glass.  Hope you like it.

Like I said I used the gold and silver Delica beads but I also used transparent green, blue, red and purple.  Very reminiscent of the stained glass windows in the Cathedrals and churches. 

Since I am a geometric design freak, I really enjoyed making this one.  Something about the straight lines and boxy shapes I guess. 

Also don't forget to fly by and check out the other great artist's work over at Every Inchie Monday .  Have a blessed, warm and beady week.

  1. Amazing - I wondered how you would interpret this and of course the answer is brilliantly! The colours look fab and it is such an intricate design. I can now picture all the ones that I have done (I'm posting Tuesday) made from beadwork!
