Escher Beads

I made these today. Very simple so they didn't take long and it was a reward for clearing off half my desk.

I think these beads are gorgeous. They remind me somewhat of the work of Escher - probably because I've got them going different directions, which now I wonder about. Above are actually a deep purple but look almost deep brown or black.

These are a deep green. The beads are so lovely and interesting that I thought they needed very litle to distract from them. I had small beads in the perfect shade for a bit of an 'antique' look, so they were very quickly strung.

I used a clasp for these as they hang shorter, and they have a nice weight.
