CONTEMPORARY GEOMETRIC BEADWORK

an open source architectural beadwork project from Kate McKinnon and a worldwide team of innovators

Gallery: Horned Work

Horns are just like corners on a triangle puff; they are Wings that have been decreased. They may look like fins, bumps, or little mountains, depending on the beads used, the size and placement of the Horns, and how you hold your work. Above, you can see Kate’s Pagoda Bangle changing from a Winged piece to a Horned. (The blue Underskirt on the Pagoda comes from an Elegant Guide Round, from Volume II, Basics).

If you want to make a piece with Horns, and it’s your first, start by learning Wings.
Be certain that you can make a good, sturdy MRAW Band start, with no loose thread. Practice on components; the Tri-Wing Ring is the perfect place to start.
