Happy Thanksgiving to all my friends who live in the USA! Though everyone around here will be lying on the floor and groaning from too much turkey and trimmings, I still wanted to share some more designs with you that I thought might give you some ideas for your own work.
I'm not suggesting that you reproduce these designs exactly, but instead that you think about the elements that we've been talking about (listed above) and see how you might include some of them in your own work. There aren't even tutorials available for all of these pieces, but most are simple enough to figure out!
The beads are made from fabric, fulfilling the first directive, to make your own components or beads.
An asymmetrical design, anyone?
Multiple strands and some bold color combos too!
Unusual materials...got to eat a lot of fortune cookies too!
