Contemporary Geometric Beadwork

I’m still waiting for my pre-ordered copy of the fantastic new book “Contemporary Geometric Beadwork” by Kate McKinnon and several other well known bead artists to come through the letterbox. However, having pre-ordered the book, I was allowed some excerpts on-line, and played with some of the ideas well before the printed book was published.

tinyhorn bangleThis is my version of the Tinyhorn Bangle. In the instructions it said that the eight horn version they made was very small, so I did a nine horn version. However, it came out too big, so I had to do some decrease rounds on the top and bottom. The grey, white and red colour scheme was inspired by a knitted dress worn by a friend.

I am working out colour schemes in delicas to try the amazing Fortuneteller bangle designed by Christina Vandervlist  from the same book – probably a mix of grey, teal and blue.
