New project published in Dec/Jan Beadwork Mag
« on: October 30, 2014, 10:36:10 AM »
FINALLY (this was originally submitted in October 2013!) my 'Georgian Jewels' project has appeared in the Dec/Jan issue of Beadwork Magazine  ;D ;D ;D

It's based on a Georgian garnet necklace, it's made entirely with seed beads (size 6 for the 'stones' and sizes 11 and 15 for the bezels), and it looks like this



or this



which I think I prefer because it's simpler. I want to try it with aquamarine and gold next  :)

I also adapted it to make a removeable cross pendant but BW weren't interested in that. Might have to write it up myself although tbh it isn't very different from the necklace, it just joins the bezels together instead of having an extra RAW unit in between.



Let me know if you try the project, it has lots of potential for using different colours and if you have the patience it would make a stunning two- or even three-strand collar. Or a multi-strand cuff...  :)

I think the cross will go down well, there are a fair few beaders out there that like 'em.  Lovely work Lynn

I am interested in making this piece. However, the math is confusing. It says in the pattern to make 107 units and then says any number divisible by three with one added. I can't maneuver this forum yet so if you could post it on FB possibly I can catch it there. Thanks  Carolyn

Carolyn, I replied to your other post and also emailed you, hope it got through. Yes, there is an error, it should say 106 units (105 plus the extra 1) not 107  :)
