sneak peaks, EtsyBloggers treasury curated by me

Here's my newest bargello design in progress.  As you may remember, I beaded a green version of Carol's design for myself this winter.  I actually took this picture yesterday and meant to post it then but I forgot.  Better late than never, right?

It doesn't look so garishly bright in more natural lighting.  For some reason, that shade of red delicas really pops and seems to pull the other colors with it.  I based the colors off of this set of bowls, and it does match them pretty closely.  I'm going to embellish it with coordinating cube beads...eventually.

I took a picture of my leafy necklace custom order beads this morning before I started putting it together.
It's still in the very early stages of development.  I'm planning to work on it more after I post here tonight.  I'm only going to use the three lamp work beads that are in the middle.  I almost always use four for my leafy bracelets, but I think that three will create a nice focus without too much extra weight.  The four beads in the corner are in case I decide to make a new Indian Summer bracelet after I finish the necklace since I sold the original bracelet at the Arts Festival.  I'm going to have to get some more yellow leaf beads if I decide to do that.

I signed up to curate an EtsyBloggers treasury for this Friday.  I finished it today, so I'm going to go ahead and shared it.  I decided to theme it Dots.
