Beautiful Knotted Classwork...

What a great class today of three delightful ladies who create three very different and creative knotted designs! The first photo below, is a picture of Joanne's knotted bracelet. It is absolutely stunning with different shapes and textures of Miyuki and Czech glass beads!
The second photo below is the first strand of Linda's necklace. It is a striking blend of knotted jute and Czech glass beads. And, can you spot the silver washers that are incorporated in her design? It is just a great combination of black, beige, and silver!

Below is Barbara's necklace in progress. Look at the beautiful "Cristina Leonard" bronze button she is incorporating in the clasp. Can't wait to see this finished...such fantastic work! Barbara also took my morning class and created a beautiful peyote stitched cuff. It was a stunning combination of copper metal and Delica beads...I apologize for not taking a photo, Barbara!
