So what do you do with a bead, some leather and a loom ...
... this is what you do, you design a pattern and let your imagination go wild! The pattern has an almost snake skin quality - shimmery and shiny! I used Miyuki Delica's 11/o in all metallics except for the turquoise which is matte.
The leather is just under 2 inches wide and bought from a recycling shop, it has a lovely texture and feels wonderful on. (I really need to find those leather tools!)
So thank you my wonderful friend, I love your work!
