Tangled Web

by: Stephanie Dixon

Oh what a tangled web we weave
When first we practice to seedbead.

Stephanie's take on this month's celebrity challenge speaks to her frustration with those itty bitty seedbeads! As she says: "Size matters!"

Wire is my comfort zone, but I don't do little beads. So, using 20 gauge Artistic wire, I created a wire-work base incorporating a couple of swirls.
 
Then using Lavender 24 gauge artistic wire, I started weaving onto the base, loading some beads, wrapping the wire onto another spot, adding more beads.
 
Continuing to use the same 24 gauge wire - but a new strand, I started weaving in the Swarovskis.
 
I thought it might be either a pendant or a brooch - but eventually decided to wire on a pin-back.
