“Rita” Zigzagged Rondelles

Creativ Festival is only 3 weeks away. It is the 25th anniversary fall show. To honor the celebration Maria of Rypan Designs has designed a beautiful necklace named for the founder Rita Gramsch. The design is based on her basic netted zigzag design.

When Maria started working on the anniversary design, I suggested working in Rita's favorite colour, teal. Starting with the zigzag pattern, Maria swapped out some seed beads for tiny rondelles. With teal as the ground colour and silver as the accent the addition of larger rondelles on every third picot made this the necklace a stunning design.

I have made a display sample in black and silver. But Maria has now requested a complete necklace in the teal. So here is my working piles of beads.

This is a beautiful design that is best as a collar length necklace. Maria is teaching this project at Creativ Festival. I hope to have time to make one for myself soon.
