Review Index: Brown Rose Experiment and Ant shows that Real Men Do Wear Beads.

 Four experiments with brown roses. Blended tiny bead experiment. Basket Weave pendant and covered tins.

03-01-07, Brown Rose Experiment: Kicking around an experiment on making a rose cane with gradated hues. When the first experiment didn't turn out as planned the cane was put through its paces. A second experiment was begun.

03-03-Brown Rose: This is the third experiment. I'm happy with this effort and the next step is to repeat this technique with rose colors.

03-06-07 Rose Draft: I thought that going back to the drawing board, literally, would be a good idea before tackling the rose cane again.  03-07-07: The fourth experiment with the rose cane. Getting closer to what is in my mind's eye.

03-10-Rose Layer Beads: This is a technique to make round, disk shaped beads without mashing them to get the hole. As the title suggests these beads are made out of layers of clay.

03-10-07- Rose Necklace: Using the Fourth Rose Cane with the Layered Bead technique I made the beads for this necklace.

02-13-07: Basket Weave - This is another example of how to create a basket weave cane. It is also the basket weave cane that made the design on the Pendant in the Brown Rose w/Ant section.

02-14-07- Pennant Beads: Remember making paper beads this way? Here it's done with a blend.

02-12-07: Cut Beads: A core of light brown surrounded by a thin sheet of dark brown, then carved. This is an experiment to simulate carved wood beads.

Pendant 03-19-07 - Here is what that basket weave made when reduced, cut into sections and repeated. I added it to one of the Blended Bead Necklaces.

03-20-07-Ant: Real men do wear beads.

Most of these went with Ant (aka Anthony) who thought they were the bomb. Later he said, "Anyone can go buy flashy bling. But this is wearing art. It's totally original. No one has anything like this on at the clubs."

03-19-07 Scrap Made
