What is IS and other things of texture.

Hiya everyone and thanks for stopping by the nest this week.  I have been trying to work on Christmas ornaments, (STILL)!  But in between those times I have finished my Inchie this week.  The theme this week is a difficult one to portray in beads.  The theme over at Every Inchie Monday is texture.  I was originally going to use opaque and matte beads but I was afraid that the  camera would not pick it up so I changed the colors.  I used a light blue that I also used in this week's twinchie and a metallic bluish color.  I designed it in a lattice pattern.  Hope you like it.


Last week I was supposed to do a twinchie, and I actually did the wrong one.    So I will wait to show that until next week.  But Cheryl over at 2x2x2 was kind enough to extend time for those of us who missed the deadline, apparently I was not the only one.  Last weeks theme was IS.  But I was really excited to get this one done.  I have actually waited for it for some time. I love the ideal behind the theme.  

For me, the take on the theme IS was so clear.  1 Corinthians 13:13: So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these IS love.  So for my IS twinchie I redid a pattern that I created for a Stethoscope bead for the nurse that took care of my daughter after her surgery last year.  It has a cross, a rainbow, and a dove; faith, hope and love. 

For it I used 10 colors of delicas.  Most of the colors are in the rainbow.  The camera does not pick up the colors properly but there are 7 colors in it.  I really love this pattern.  It always gives me such peace when I bead it.  I know it is because of the meaning of the pattern, but I do just enjoy beading it.  Here it is, I hope that you like it.

  2. I always feel that beads by their very nature create texture so you were always going to be onto a winner here!

  4. As always, I love your inchies, but this one is the most special. 1 Corinthians 13 is my most favorite chapter in the entire Bible. Your pickup of all the colors of the rainbow and the lovely metallic gold in the cross are just wonderful! And for the the dove, all I have to say is WOW. The dove represents so many things, but peace, love, and faith by far, are the best. Much love.

  7. texture was a tough one this week - love the contrasting blues that give your beads visual texture. I'm sure the beads themselves have a distinctive tactile texture.
