You know Janet Rosenberg for her gorgeous ergonomic wooden handle crochet hooks and bead looms, shown here wearing the fabulous jewelry she made using a beaded bead recipe Valerie Hector had published in a winter issue of a beading magazine. Janet made a black pair plus a smaller silver charlotte pair for earrings. The necklace is a silver one enclosed in a right angle weave square cage she designed herself.
When she arrived for class at the studio she wanted to be reminded of the recipe used to make the polygon bezels she did for these rivolis and buttons. Shown here is their beautiful underside.
I had the chance to play forensic beader, which I realllllllly love doing, to tell her how these were done. The dragon fly button was a gift from fellow beader Marianne. If they ever ask for expert bead testimony in court, I'm there.
Pat Riesner teaches this crystal heart pendant (and sells them finished) and shared the recipe with Janet. Tonight in the studio class Janet wanted to work on hers so everyone joined in. Thanks Pat for sharing your heart with everyone.
