We've asked our Bead Art Original members to tell us about their "proudest creations." In this post, thebeadedlily tells us about hers, in her own words:
The herringbone in Barbary Coast is woven in 8 shades of Miyuki gunmetal, steel, charcoal and grey. The beadwork is almost all you feel when the piece is worn.
All of the teeth are fossils so no sharks were harmed in the making of this cuff. The gorgeous mako tooth is gem-polished and just over 2 inches (5.5cm) long. The 8 bull teeth are about an inch (2.5cm). All metal is sterling.
Why this one? I think because I loved the process as much as the outcome and because it was so educational. I learned much about sharks, teeth and fossils-- and I love to learn.
It was pretty frustrationless too. I had the idea, but was unsure how to execute it, still everything went pretty smoothly once I started to work. So I have only good memories of this one!
It's also one of my more unique creations and extremely bold.
And it turned out so beautifully.
