Free-form for Monica


Who is the best client in our business? The on who gives us free hands! :)

This necklace is a commission piece for a person with a great personality - Monica from Uppsala.
Was FUN to make! I got instructions for only what colors to use and what shape it was supposed to be. The rest is free form ;)

In the basis is a simple netted collar, embellished with freeform herringbone and peyote, as well as some coralling. The net is made using 9/0, and the embellishment is 50:50 mix of 11/0 Czech and Japanese seed beads.

Many thanks to Angelica Motzkin for the explanations about the freeform herringbone, and Ludmila Gubinova for the idea with those swirling & dangling peyote stripes that I hung on both sides of the necklace for the ballance ;)

Enjoy your summer!

Спасибо большое, Аня!
А что именно Вас интересует? ;)
Я их делаю наобум - как бисер ляжет. Начинаю с маленького кусочка, а потом строю мостики из мозаики и бусин. Потом мостики соединяю между собой новыми мостиками, или просто стягиваю вместе - чтобы хорошо лежало на плоскости.

Простите, но я и не знала, что вы говорите по русски. Ваши работы фриформ великолепны, не только эта одна. Удивительно гармонично.
