Tuscarora Tuesday

I'll be taking another bead class from Rosemary Hill in June. Although I don't know exactly what the finished project will look like, it is entitled "Six Point Star."

There are three 6-pointed stars in this collection. Maybe it will be similar to these:
Each of them have an almost identical design - but don't they look quite different? This artist placed the center tube beads horizontally in her petals and has a center vein on her leaves. I like how the center matches the bias tape edge.
This artist used a few rows of tube beads for her petals and no vein in the leaves. What a fanciful center of dots for the flower center.
The artist below used the tube beads in a vertical fashion and also didn't use veins. I noticed they all used a double border of beads around the perimeter, though.
This one seems fairly modern, although there is some wear on the velvet and those large tube beads appear again. Maybe the owner just kept very very very good care of it. As they should!

Bead Happy and often!

These are so beautiful! And precious aren't they! Can't wait to see what you do in class. Looks like the petals used the fish bone stitch, doesn't it..at least I think that's what it's called.

Wow! Even if a similar pattern was used, the individuality of the artist sure shone through! They are in amazing condition, too! Thanks for continuing to share these beauties.

Like the blue one . . . then again maybe I'm biased with the color :-)Oh and the giraffe WIP on the previous post - that's a lot of beads! I'm sure he is just a cutie.

Hello Lynn, on a serious note, what has happened to Hannah is unbelievable. The last one I can't believe even. This in front of the teacher? I hope and pray she adjusts to homeschooling just fine because it is for her safety. And for your plans to transfer her to another school, I too hope and pray that you will find a place that is safe so you wouldn't worry everytime you send her off to school.

Mizpah,
