Circular Shapes and Other Beadweaving Thoughts

Do certain shapes call your name?

Circles appeal to me.

Blue Treasure began with a circular cabochon of base metal. I stitched around the disc the same evening my friend gave it to me.

Electric blue, navy blue and light blue seed beads practically jumped onto the pellon and wove themselves into three circles. I envisioned embellishments and rushed to add 11 dangles.

The bead board smoked as I threw down painted ceramic beads designed to wear on a white t-shirt with blue jeans.

And it all started with a circle.

Summer. Easy. Relaxing. Fun.

Don’t you love it? So much sun… Maybe that’s the inspiration for my favorite shape!
