I stayed up entirely too late last night working on the beadwork for the parasol I mentioned a few days ago. I'm hoping I'll finish it this weekend. I'm in the process of picking out the flower pattern in iridescent clear seed beads with a black core. Here's a teaser shot:
So for today, another simple piece to keep the momentum going. This piece is done in green aventurine, for a special reason - green is the color long associated with good fortune or money. My husband was just told yesterday that his office will be closing in January, so we can definitely use a little good fortune here. The style is one of the first I came up with when I started making jewelry almost 10 years ago, wire-wrapped beads interspersed with Celtic knots.
