Project and Sample by Janice Parsons

Janice loves the timeless colors of bronze vessels from Ancient Greece. Water jars, known as Hydria, are especially graceful. She was very drawn to this one with it's flowing embellishment. It can be seen today in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in Gallery 158. It was intended to remain a bright gold, but over time the metals have burnished to a beautiful green patina.

Janice says, "I never tire of both the beauty and grace of bronze when it turns the color of ocean."

Color Study  is a classic beadshop laddered wrap project intended to bring together beads of different shapes and sizes within a particular color palette. We usually see a section of laddered chain, but Janice skipped that in favor of bringing us three new skills instead: laddering with Miyuki Drops, laddering with two-holed Czech Bars, and using a magnetic clasp.

Please join us as our worldwide community gathers onFacebook and YouTube at 10:30am Pacific Time on March 8th, 2023. It’s so much fun to go live with us and bead together! After the live broadcast the video will be available above.
