Hi--I'm a rugweaver and beadweaver located in Panama City, FL. Here I'm trying to put down where my ideas are headed, and what I'm working on creatively, in both media. You can see more of my work at emiliepritchard.com
Here are 2 variations on a theme. The one with the green stone beads (African jade) was made a couple of months ago, and I was pretty happy with it. I like that it is regular, and yet the sawtooth edge breaks up the symmetry a bit. But recently I started wondering how I could take the idea and make it a bit more dramatic. The answer turned out to be size. By increasing the size of each unit from around 1.5 inches to over 2.5 inches, I made a necklace that, to me at least, has more impact.
