Level: Intermediate

Estimated time: Weekend Project

Indian Summer by Cindy Brook

Project: In the Garden, by Brittany Ketchum Indian Summer is Cindy's second entry to Beader Showcase. Cindy has created a bold, cacophony of color that will draw you in almost immediately. "Sometimes I get visions in my head or I wake up one day and I want to make something in greens and reds. I really try to let the beads talk to me." There's no doubt Cindy communicated with the cord, leather and beads to create a multi-wrap with a rich color story. Cindy wrote her love of art came from her father, but knew she found her passion "the moment I walked into my first bead store."

In the Garden, by Brittany Ketcham, is a Video Project, so be sure to watch the video, if you're new to beading. Unfortunately, Beader Showcase entries are not complete projects but rather submissions for inspiration and therefore, we don't have Project Maps for you to follow section to section. Cindy's sample is meant to help you find inspiration and then create your own adaptation. The recipe for Indian Summer is below the photograph and all the ingredients we carry at beadshop are available for purchase under the SHOP tab above. If you want to see what else Cindy is up to, she has invited us to visit her on Facebook. Thank you, Cindy! Please watch the video before beginning the project.
