Tis the Season

Standard

IMG_3781The local shop that carries my beadwork has decorated for the holidays.  Last year I was so far behind, participating in their festivities just didn’t happen.

Not so this year!

This is one of the ornaments I made for the shop tree.  It’s a geometric take on the triangle beading I’ve done in the past.  Amazing what ideas appear as you’re about to fall asleep!

It also provides the perfect way to use large Chinese crystals.IMG_3768  I added a touch of wire work to make colored swirls and eye pins.  I think this gives a more festive appearance.

The triangles are hollow.  Being made from large delica beads (size 8), they hold their shape pretty well.

Another nice thing about these is they are mostly unbreakable.  While they are glass, it’s not the traditional fragile ornament glass; these are much sturdier.  That’s always a concern for us pet owners – broken glass around the tree.

Enjoy!
