I have some projects that I have made as a result of teaching a class. I like to remake projects that I teach to show other colorways. Over the next week or two I would like to share a few of them with you. A few years back a yahoo group that I was part of had a fun challenge. People would submit names to be used as inspiration for a jewelry piece. Anyone could participate. One of the names suggested was "Indian Princess". This one resonated with me because as a child, my dad and I participated in the YMCA's Indian Princess program. It is a very fond memory to me of time spent with my dad. Below is the original Indian Princess necklace. It is made with a combination of tubular peyote, tubular herringbone and stringing.
I taught this project at the Bead Hive earlier this year. I made this one using bronze, tan and khaki matte metallic beads. I love the earthy feel it has.
I hope you enjoyed this a peek at this remake. Please stayed tuned for some more!
Have a great day.
