an open source architectural beadwork project from Kate McKinnon and a worldwide team of innovators
Triangles have taken our attention in the past week, but soon our minds will be turning to the zigzaggy Rick-Rack.
Danielle McElroy Brown made a lovely swatch for us. Have you made one? Show us!
Do you plan patterns before you begin your beadwork, or design on the fly? Or both?
The gold, red and lilac piece above is a crown or arm-band, and the swatch in progress below looks a bit awkward, but that’s because it is transforming magically into a 3-D Rick-Rack Wedge.( We’ll show you the finished piece in the book!)
