I nearly forgot that today was Thursday, meaning, I nearly forgot to post! Oops!
Today's From the Vault is a trio of Goddesses that I made based on a pattern that was published in Beadwork or Bead and Button a few years back. The form is Crayola Model Magic air drying clay over a wire. They are each around 2.5" tall
I started with a 2-bead wide ladder stitch base around the waist and went from there. This was a great exercise in increases and decreases in brick stitch. Some places requred some additional "tacking" of the beadwork into the Model Magic to make the beadwork lay flat.
First is the Fire Goddess. I went on a flame kick a while back and just loved making simple three colored flames on a black background.
Next up is the Water Goddess. She is made of rain, and clouds, and a pond near her feet.
Finally is the Earth Goddess. She is made of sun and planets and stars.
I think I will make more of these in the future, I actually found some forms whilst choosing beads for my on-road adventure.
