Well, it seems as if pretty much all I've done this past month is right angle weave. I've pretty much ate, drunk and slept the stitch as I worked to finish my new book and prepared for Bead Fest Texas. Mostly, I've been stitching samples for kits that I'll be taking with me to Bead Fest, then posting on my Etsy shop hopefully next week.
So here are a few of the pieces I finished this week:
|Just finished this one on Monday|
|Snowfall - an look it has sequins!|
|Bead caps and bail using right angle weave|
|This one's Random Right Angle Weave|
|Finished this one earlier this month, but it's all right angle weave, so thought I'd show it again|

I have to tell you I noticed the sequins right away- that is a lovely beaded bead.ReplyDelete
Squeal!! Love that snowflake bead! I bet that is going to be a big hit for the class. The random RAW bracelet is so beautiful, that's one on my list to try with a gorgeous bead soup I got from Nancy Dale. Wish I could be at Bead Fest to take your class, I know it would be a great learning experience!ReplyDelete
Beautiful! all your work is so gorgeous ... I really do like that cuff and can image that is looks amazing on!ReplyDelete
You know I wish I could be there with you at Beadfest and learn from your very talented self!! I love those beaded beads!!!ReplyDelete
Thank you for joining mine and Christine's challenge. I love your work you make RAW look so easy and care free. I love the beaded beads, the free form RAW bracelet, and the necklace awesome work on all. I must say I did try the free form RAW and almost finished it. I meant to take a picture and post what I started on my blog post but forgot. I hope that you will join in on the next ATTS challenge and I wish you luck and much fun in Texas.
Beautiful beaded bead! I love all these pieces!!!ReplyDelete
Ohhhh love some beaded beads! And the RRAW Bracelet is abfab! I think I have to try something like that! Thank you for the inspiration!ReplyDelete
All of your beads are beautiful and I love the freeform bracelet!ReplyDelete
I've been admiring your beaded beads for a while and these are no exception. I love those little corset beads. Your freeform RAW bracelet just blows me away, though. That button is a gorgeous focal and your beadwork is stunning!ReplyDelete
Please pack me in your suitcase and take me with you....along the way please teach me the corset technique---! I had just been reading about you and your corset beads!! Love the sequins and how they will sparkle!! Beautiful work and have a fun trip!ReplyDelete
My RAW guru...you got me hooked on Random RAW and then your easy instructions held my hand through the dreaded regular RAW. And now, I am pretty darn sure I get it. Thank you, Karen!ReplyDelete
Your RAW beads are wonderful and I am really smitten with the snowfall one-love the dots of sequins :-) Your RAW rope is gorgeous and very substantial. You all make these ropes look like a breeze to make. hmmmm.....
Of course I am always partial to the Random RAW cuffs you make and this one is a beauty with a gorgeous button.
Thanks for Hopping Karen and allowing us to post your tutorial. We really appreciate that! Have fun and best of luck with BeadFest TX !
Karen, beautiful, beautiful pieces! I am in love with the random freeform RAW bracelet and those corset beads are great! Your work is always so wonderful!!!ReplyDelete
You know I love anything that comes off of your needle and nymo, but the first two beads are particularly fantastic -- purple and teal is one of my all time favorite combos, and the sequins on the second are darling!ReplyDelete
I just adore beaded beads and these are lovely. How great that your entire necklace is RAW. The braclet is just Stunning, love it!ReplyDelete
Hi Karen, Thanks for the tutorial. Love all your pieces especially random RAW! Have fun at Beadfest Texas ;)ReplyDelete
Wow those are fabulous! I love a bead covered in beads! Very awesome!ReplyDelete
Oh, wow - so many pieces, so much variety! Absolutely love that cuff :)ReplyDelete
Your beaded beads are stunning! Congrats on the book and teaching etc. The idea of random RAW really appeals to me in a big way. I love freeform so this would be right up my alley. It is truly a beautiful bracelet.ReplyDelete
I am totally unfamiliar with random RAW, but I love the open, organic feel of that cuff. Wish there was a BeadFest Atlanta, so I could take your classes!ReplyDelete
Karen, beautiful job! I'm so excited that one of your beads has sequins on it. Would you mind if I included it in the reader gallery on my blog?ReplyDelete
I'm really intrigued by the random RAW. That's something I definitely want to try -- it's gorgeous.
Also, have I mentioned how much I enjoyed the preview of your book? Your diagrams are clear and your written instructions are awesome. I know that once I get the hang of RAW, I'll have a lot of fun trying your projects!
Love the random bracelet. I am going to have to give that a try! Your bead covers are intriguing and look like they would be fun to make. Since I live in Delaware, I am wondering do you sell your patterns online?ReplyDelete
I love beaded beads and yours are awesome Karen! I love the colors and patterns. Your cuff and necklaces are beautiful too!ReplyDelete
Thank you all! And Andra - yes, I do have patterns for sale in my Etsy shop. htt://skunkhillstudio.etsy.comReplyDelete
