I bought some two-hole beads last winter, just because. Because they’ve been around for ages and I’ve never worked with them. That seemed a good enough reason.

I began with a complicated pattern. Not the best idea as I kept getting lost. So I reverted to a simple design and varied the colour of the accent beads.

 

Here’s the same design with red two-hole beads.

 

I look at these four pieces and see the same pattern. In chatting with visitors at the farmers’ market last weekend, however, most of them saw totally different pieces — they only saw the similarities when I pointed them out. Seeing is deceiving … :-)
