I've been doing a lot of looking at Egyptian jewelry lately for inspiration. This is based on a large pendant of gold, lapis lazuli, and enamels. The colours are every bit as rich today as they were 1000's of years ago.
This is a small piece that would make a very nice pendant or pen. It would also look very pretty in your hair, attached to a small hair clip or bobby pin.
The bead patterns, graphs, tutorials, and general "how tos" on this blog represent my time and effort.
In short: they are my copyright property.
When ever one of my patterns is used, PLEASE send me a pic or two (or three!). I will even post it here to share, with your permission (and loads of credit). I love it when people make up my patterns, and I enjoy seeing all the variations.
I also ask that folks don't go out and sell my patterns as graphs or kits. That would not be fair use. Please don't go out and make a bunch to sell - again, that would not be fair use. If you want to use my stuff to teach a class, please ask me first. I tend to be pretty easy going, as long as folks ask first.
