Handcrafted Jewelry — Designed to be Different

Same Design, Different Colours

2 Comments

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 … :-)

Beads? What can I say — they snuck up on me when I wasn't looking. Now I'm hooked.

  1. Very pretty… they can lok like flowers or snowflakes, depending on the colours you choose :) I seldom work with beads but love those super-duos, Sally. I enjoyed this easy pattern by Claire Fabian at http://saraccino.blogspot.com/2014/02/blue-flowers-and-tiny-wee-beading.html
