Behind the Design

Happy October!  Where has this year gone?  So many beads, so little time…

As most of you know, I prefer to work on an idea, then draw it up if I decide I want to create a tutorial or pattern.  My latest Star pattern idea actually ended up with two possibilities.

ArrowheadStar
The first is one, I’m calling Arrowhead (for now) because of the southwest coloring and the arrow-like band of squash around it.  But, at the last minute when working on my squares, I changed some colors.  I knew it would change the look!  As a result, I’m not loving the star motif in the center –  will tweak this one some more…

BlueFrostStar

But, it inspired me to create the Blue Frost Star.  This one has an “icy” look to it and the crystal beads are almost see through!  I forgot to take a picture of it before I displayed it at Sea of Beads, so the photo at right is a little hard to see.  I’ll have a better picture soon, since I’m working on the pattern and graphs now.

Happy Beading!
