New Shop, New Designs and an Advertisement featuring my Toho challenge 2017 piece

Today 16 May 2017 is the day of the opening of my beautiful new shop. I hope that you will visit often to discover my new designs, or maybe order something custom-made.

In French they say that "a good new never comes alone". In English it is always plural, and its true:

My arms are better and my desire to create and write tutorials is back. I'm working on pretty designs and tutorials for you. Preciosa Ornella sent me Farfalle beads and Twin beads to participate in two challenges in February and March that greatly inspired me, and both designs I made were
chosen as winners.

The tutorial for the February design is already available, I called it Farfalle stitch, a new pentagon stitch mixing DW variations. It draws lovely little butterflies, bows or flowers.

    



I will soon work on a tut for the Pinwheel cuff, winner of their March contest:

 
 

Right now I am working on the tutorial for the beautiful Cosmic Spiral (below left) based on Colimaçon spiral (below right) part of my Toho Challenge 2017 piece. It offers lots of options, you can use many sorts of beads, and make it spiral a lot or a little.

  


"Time has Wings" will be exhibited in Milwaukee in less then a month - it pleases me to be at the show somehow! Toho chose my design to appear in an advertisement in Bead & Button Magazine,
which makes me feel very proud:

 


 

The photo in the ad shows only the Wings of my piece - see everything and learn more about it in my blog article about the inspiration and wip regarding this piece. I am so happy with how this
piece came together. It represents two months of true creative bliss. This piece made me
realize how much I love beading.
 
You can see more photos on my blog, but also in the portfolio on my website where you can (re)discover my work other than the tutorials (still adding photos). 


I'd love to have feedback from you!

Thank you very much for your support!
&
Happy Beading!
