|I want POINTS|
CGB empowers the beader, bringing tips and tools to go further and beyond trying. It makes sketching easier (you know that you CAN do it). It enables you to make things you would never have thought possible.
This piece was inspired by the work of two wonderful bead artists. Firstly Jennifer Chasalow VanBenschoten, whose collar for the Battle of the Beadsmith 2012 made me want one like that. When I saw it, I really fell in love (and I still am). It took me more than a year to come up with my own 'pointy' collar.

Do I need to mention that the nifty instructions in the book Contemporary Geometric Beadwork by Kate McKinnon to make the zig zag and points were very helpful?
Last but not least - for reasons of motion, I built the lower part on Delica beads added like Kate shows in her 'Guide Round' - available to those who pre-order Volume 2 of Contemporary Geometric Beadwork.
