I know... pretty cool, huh? The design is by Jean Power from a book about to be published by Jean and Kate McKinnon. These women are amazingly talented, edgy and adventuresome souls. This piece took me a while to bead. Each beaded piece I create has a kind of internal timeline. I can look at this and remember what was doing at the time. I turned 60 on the red and blue triangle! I watched both the RNC and the DNC while beading this. I KNOW I had to rip out a BUNCH of beads during the Romney/Ryan show. They just do not get the REAL LIVES of REAL people! I finished this last night right before President Obama was introduced. I wanted to give the man my full attention. I'm so glad I put down the beads... I would've had a beady mess... what with the tears and all. WOW! So proud to be an American... I mean that in the best possible way.
So the Caldera Bangle is finished! I experimented with color, texture, light... very fun. Some combinations of beads work better than others. To be expected.
I leave you with another pic of Caldera and I'll be blogging like crazy in the days to come!
