Have you ever walked down the board game aisle of a toy store just for the nostalgia? No matter how many new games are invented, there will always be a select few that stand out. Monopoly, dominoes, playing cards…they’re a huge part of our culture and they’re here to stay.
Ring # 25 - Jack of Diamonds
I was in the mood to make an simple peyote stitch ring, and I needed a fun pattern. I’ve already done flowers to death, so I decided to go with diamonds. They’re easy to stitch and fit into a strip of peyote small enough for a ring.
I went through my bead stash and selected some colors that reminded me of traditional playing cards. Since I had only a tiny bit of white left, I used some pretty red-lined blue for the base color. I like the way they blend all of the other colors together.
Thinking about kings, queens and jacks brought up memories of playing Rummoli, Mousetrap and Connect Four. I thought it would be fun to take this inspiration and run with it, so I searched high and low for some fun tabletop game creations. This week’s Treasury collection features many familiar games and toys. To learn more about the artists behind these designs, visit Fun and Games.
