Playing with Triangles





My fascination with the architecture possible through beads continues. I found a really nifty little triangle patterns free on a German Website, Glasperlen Designs by Eva Maria Keiser. I made one little triangle, but then did another, expanded it, and before you know it I had a pyramid. I have pictures to show you the steps along the way. Not sure what to do with it, maybe add a ctrstal and turn it into a pendant. Link to pattern (there is an English version) http://www.glasperlendesign.com/index.php/cat/c208_KEISER-DESIGNS.html I would like to figure out a way to do this continuously rather than making four triangles, I hate sewing in thread ends. I used smoke 6 lb fireline, and this gave a little stiffness which is needed for the structure. The little googly is one of my porcelain dolls I used to make, I still have a basement full of antique doll molds. I started beading when I needed jewellry for my dolls and could not find any I liked, and over the years the beads took over.....
