Inspired by Tricks to Laddering Video (by Brittany Ketcham) and Handout (by Janice Parsons)
More than any other artist in the late 19th to early 20th Century, Louis Comfort Tiffany defined the American Arts and Crafts period. Creating and innovating with glass was part of his trademark; Tiffany was the first artist to use colored glass rather than painted glass in his windows. His work is timeless and priceless.
Lacey has always loved the Art Nouveau Period with its twisting and overlapping, asymmetrical patterns. “The romance of that time has always captured my imagination.” This panel referred to as “Clematis by Tiffany, circa 1900”, was an obvious choice when it came to being inspired by green.
Lacey watched the video, Tricks to Laddering and downloaded the Handout to learn the techniques. For bead selection, Tricks of the Trade is an excellent PDF to review; it will help you select beads and supplies that bring out the mood and feeling of your own inspiration. Enjoy!
One technique, one button, a few beads, leather and thread….that’s all you need to make a delicious 5 wrap bracelet. Watch the video and download the companion handout and be transported to another place.
