Darjeeling

Darjeeling

This piece was created during a week long workshop with Diane Fitzgerald during which we were to create non-functional teapots. Darjeeling, named for the tea of course, is a teapot with a removeable lid, a tail for the handle and a beak for the spout. He is created from size 11 seed beads, glass wings, feathers and a few accent beads.
 

Star Sphere

Star Sphere

The Star Sphere is the result of a class taught by Judy Walker. In the class we learned the technique to make a hollow sphere. But I thought it would look fabulous with Swarovski Rivolis inside the stars. And Voila! It does! Judy included this piece in her new book, The Beaded Sphere.
 

Wisteria Lane Lariat

Wisteria Lane Lariat

I received the following good news from Lynn Healey of Great Britain who purchased the Wisteria Lane Lariat Kit and (with my permission) entered it into the Royal Horticultural Society Show. We won and the piece is now touring Great Britain for a year. <> Hello, I thought you'd like to know that your Wisteria Lane piece won first place in the beadwork category of the local royal horticultural society show. The judges' comments were "A magnificent piece of work in elegant colours. Well done!" All the best, Lynn
