Pod Vessel

I started 2015 off with instructions from Julia Pretl for her vessels. She is working towards a new book with all of her vessel patterns. It was great to do another non-jewelry beadwork project.

Julia's original Pod Vessel
The vessel uses seedbeads instead of the delicas used for her boxes. I looked thru my stash of seed beads and selected metallic silver and navy blue.

I took the time read the basic instructions for making a four-legged vessel. It was helpful to understand how to read the pattern for the Pod design.

I am looking forward to making a second vessel as part of the Toronto Bead Society Bag of Beads challenge.

Thanks again Julia for another great project.

Happy Beading!
