For this month's design challenge for Bead Infinitum, I chose the Infinity Dodecahedron pattern. This pattern from Gwen Fisher and Florence Turnour really offers a lot of adaptability. I love small things. I started off with the smallest bead option listed on the pattern, 11/0's and 15/0's. You can also adjust the scale of your beaded bead by which beads you use. This pattern can also be made with 6/0's and 8.0's or even 3 mm fire polish.
After practicing the pattern to get the feel for how the beads work together, I jumped in with a light center of white and gold. For the surface embellishment, I used blue and green beads. For the accent beads, I made cubes and strung them diagonally. I had some vintage white chip beads that I bought a few years ago when we were visiting my sister-in-law in Florida. I love how light and airy and delicate the necklace came out.
Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek. I hope that your New Year is off to a good start!!
