CONTEMPORARY GEOMETRIC BEADWORK

New ideas….

I had a wonderful epiphany this week, while demonstrating the Elegant Guide Round. I realized that increases could be placed into that round quite easily; increases that start in air, instead of crammed into a peyote slot.

And then I realized that if I planned an Exploding Round in the round before, I could remove a section that had WINGS STARTING IN THE AIR. With no stress on the bottom of the increases.

Think about that for a while, those of you out there who get this, before I show you pictures that influence your thinking. This is a really interesting new idea, and I will be showing demos of my take on it soon. In the meantime…  I’d love to get your minds spinning, if you have experience with each of these CGB threadpaths, and can visualize the implications….

    Kate, I Love your idea. It reminds me faintly of Buck Rogers with the wings of an owl or an eagle. A totally new way at looking at something. Keep up the good work.
