Circles and Squares

Once again it is that time of the month when I ask you to head over to the Etsy Beeadweavers Blog to vote for your favorite entry in the monthly challenge. This month's theme is Circles and Squares.

Once again I have entered a piece into the challenge.

I designed the pattern on graph paper, true to my love of needlepoint patterns. I am a sucker for old, musty smelling, stiff paged, needlepoint pattern and how to books that I find in thrift shops and basement library sales. Bargello is beautiful.

The color choice was not intentionally seasonally festive when I picked it but as I began weaving I decided I liked it and so it was. Since these colors were already on my bead mat and I had actually been willing and happy to bead a red and green pendant I figured a pair of earrings to match were in order.

These are finished now and will soon be listed in my shop as soon as ear hooks are added and photos are taken. 

In the meantime, don't forget to go vote for your favorite bead woven entry!
