still seeing orange

finally got all of the crystals into their nets

and this is how they look laid out on the original sketch

recently there have been a number of articles in the bead magazines where beaders are using a cotton souch braid in with the beads to create pieces of jewelry

I'm contemplating the proper stitch to use for creating beaded souch braid -- peyote is too stiff and right angle weave is probably too flexible -- the research and experimentation continues

meantime, I'm working on the quilting of the fall piece -- that's moving right along

and I've been experimenting with some materials for another piece -- yesterday I discovered that you can't mark on polyester organza with either stamp pad ink or Copic markers ---- hmmmmmm --- but you can use a match at the edges to create a burnt curled edge --- more techniques to be tried soon

time to get to it

The one with the black center, second from bottom on the right side--it looks atom-ically correct.
