Waves Head band and Little Mermaid wall hanging

I've been given permission to show photos of beaded works prior to their publication in 'Beading' magazine. So at last I can show you what I've been up to.

The 'Waves' headband was inspired by the sea. The curling spirals of the beads represent the rolling of the waves as they crash onto the beach.
 I used blues, aqua and purple as these colours remind me of the ocean. The Alice band in covered in a sea green fabric. It's worn on top of the head and the sparkles of sequins and faceted beads add pizazz to any hair do.

The blackline pattern and instructions for Waves will appear in 'Beading' magazine early 2012.

The Little Mermaid wall hanging was finished yesterday. She's found a string of beads on the ocean floor and come up to see them sparkle in the sun.
Instructions and a blackline pattern for Little Mermaid will appear in 'Beading' magazine early 2012.
