What a weekend. On Friday I buckled down and just started making. After a couple of false starts I came up with this small motif. The smaller one in the picture was just the step one of it. It had a nice Gothic feel to me with a little woven chain element, but I felt like I could not only use this small motif as a pendant or maybe joined with a couple more for a bracelet, but I could also just keep building and see where it gets me.
I guess I kind of had that monster doily everyone has been working on in my mind. Not that I have any illusions that this with grow to those kind of proportions, but it was, I suppose, an inspiration to keep me adding more rounds.
This is where I stopped for the day. I liked playing with the shape of the piece as I went too. Some rounds were more, well, round and others more square. There was also this unintended element of straight crossed lines formed from the smaller rings joining across rows. It wasn't intentional, but I really love how it looks.
