Unplanned

These were a bit of a happy accident - I was twiddling about with dot designs and slowly these evolved. I made about ten beads before I stumbled upon this design.

It's a complex bead to make and relies on good dot placement and encasing to make it work properly. I made a few that were slightly wonky - I discovered that if the dots aren't just right and the encasing isn't done in a particular way then the desired effect isn't achieved.

I'm mighty, mighty pleased with these!

Calm, Catherine, calm ....!

What I love about this design is the colour potential. I have a hundred and one colour combo ideas buzzing around in my head for them. Expect lots of these beads for the next few days!
