Work in Progress: Tasty Tutorial

Exciting things are happening in my workspace right now! I’ve just finished the new fringe necklace, and it turned out so luscious. The contrast of orange and creamy blues came out exactly the way I had hoped, and the gradually changing colors in the rope finish everything off perfectly. I ended up topping the fringe loops with amber colored horn rondelles, and I love the look so much that I’m definitely going to keep it in mind for future projects.

Orange Delight Fringe Necklace

I haven’t yet had a chance to start anything new, but I’ve got the colors picked out for a fun new holiday tutorial project. I can’t wait to cut into that hank of transparent cherry seed beads! I’m still working out the exact pattern that will make this piece come together – however it goes it will be delicious-looking. Can you guess what it will be?

Holiday Beadwork in Progress

I have a growing list of new tutorial and project ideas, but if you’re looking for instructions on a particular stitch let me know in the comments and perhaps I’ll add it to the queue. I’m crossing my fingers that no one will request African helix stitch, though I do have plans for mastering it for 2016.

What are you making right now?
