Our city-parish library system showcases the work of local collectors, artists and craftspeople in monthly exhibits. Although the bead society participates in these exhibits fairly regularly, it had been a while since I had, primarily because the displays are themed. One must either have something on-hand that fits, which I rarely do, or make it very quickly, and I rarely have time to do that. This time, I did.
The items for the "Winter White" show were due at the end of the week I found out about the show, but I was still on my winter break, so I raided my stash for white and clear beads and fell to work on this bracelet. It's a simple three-row right angle weave grid made with a mix of white and clear 11° Czech seed beads of various finishes. I offset the center row so that when I embellished the grid, the clear button flowers would sit between the 4mm mother-of-pearl beads, rather than vying for space with them.
