I’ve been working on this piece for a while. It’s 11° Delicas, which take more time. Now I’m stuck. I like where the design has gone so far, from a flat zigzag to a lovely flower once some of the corners were joined. Now I’m stuck. Next?
Originally I had thought a brooch, but it’s too large (hence the ruler in the photo for scale). The rivoli makes it more of a statement piece. It’s too delicate to hang from a necklace as a focal.
I’m not one for making the types of huge neck pieces that the beading competitions seem to like. As the song says, “Where Do I Go from Here?”
If women wore hats, I think it would look great on a fancy chapeau, maybe with some silk flowers and point d’esprit lace. But really, when was the last time you wore a hat? A Real Hat?
Think. Think. Think.
