Also this week over at 2x2x2 the theme is Sweater. Normally when a years list is posted I start designing my patterns; mostly because it takes some time to get the beads together and if I don't have what I need then I have to order them. So I wracked my brain about what to design for sweater I finally decided on the red letter man sweater from Grease. Which I thought was pretty funny since last week was the live debut of Grease. So check this out, my sweater, my first and only letter man sweater.
Lastly, I want to show a challenge piece that I did for the the Amulet bag competition over at Beadwork Mentoring, a Facebook beading group. There was 7 entries and I was named as Honorable Mention! I was really excited about this challenge. Check out my Amulet bag that I titled "You Gatsby Kidding Me!"
This is the front of the bag and it has a Flapper on it in front of a teal and gold wall. She has a long pearl necklace on. I used 10 colors of Delicas. The necklace is also made of pearl beads, teal metal filigree disk beads, Gold, brown and white fire polish beads, white jade rondelles, and teal alabaster rectangles. The fringe is made of gunmetal bugle beads, 11/0 bronze seed beads, green and gold bicones and I used a metalic mix of dragon scale beads.
Here is the backside of the bag. With this side I used 2 colors of Delicas and made the deign in the style of a gold filigree elevator gate from the 1920's. I also connected both sides by the bronze 11/0 seed beads.
Hope you like this bag as much as I do. I have had this pattern for some time and was so excited that when given the chance to make it; I jumped at it.
