Some Unexpected Color

Just a quickie update today - not only have I been beading the reverse side of my February BJP vessel, I've also been working on the tall vessel that I originally made for my Lisa Peters star button.  Since the star color doesn't work with these vessel colors, I will be using a different Lisa Peters button on it.  And that calls for a completely different beading treatment on the vessel.  So here's my progress...


Typical lighting problem, but after it's finished I'll have it professionally photographed.  I am really loving this piece!  I never had any intention of using green beads on this vessel - but I love surprises, particularly when it comes in the form of unexpected color.

Now I'm off to tech land for the rest of the day - and you folks go be happy and creative!

I love the blues in this one and the tendrils of the beads. Its really beautiful Shirley.

Oh, thank you Vicky - this vessel has been a lot of fun to bead!

It doesn't show up well in my pix but the bottom of the vessel also has some violet. I'm hoping that color shows up better when I have good pictures taken of the finished piece.

The colors are totally working for me, Shirley, especially the green - love it!

Thanks, Patty! I'm a fan of blue and green together. It's funny, my dad hated blue and green together. I always wondered about that, since he was a nature lover. He must have blocked out the sky when he looked at the grass, trees, and mountains... :-)

I too love the blues. In addition the shape is what pulls me in.
Wonderful.

Thanks, Nicole! The shape is a bit different from what I usually do. I like "different", it's fun. :-)
