Welcome to another Saturday at Saturday Sequins!
Today is a super special Saturday... because it's the day of the Sequintastic September blog hop!
Here's my project, a work in progress that will eventually be a collar.
This piece features sequins in neutral/earth tones, seed beads, Chinese crystal beads, and more cabochons than I've ever used on a single necklace.
And even though this piece is all about the sparklies, I thought I'd mention that the larger cabs came from The Idea Store of all places, and the smaller ones were given to me by Skylar, who is twenty kinds of awesome (at least). I'm so happy that I finally found the right home for them!
(And in case you're curious, the foundation is Nicole's BeadBacking. Awesome stuff.)
As you can see, I have a lot of beading left to do! This piece has been very improvisational, so I'm not sure what will happen next. The only thing I know for sure is, I'll continue with the turquoise and earth tones. Oh, and also? I'll avoid the fearful symmetry. Stitching the stones in more-or-less the same pattern is enough for me.
So that's what I came up with. Now I hope you'll join me in visiting the rest of the participants! I'm seriously excited to see what they made.
