Beadweaving is such a versatile medium. I love that I can take all different colors and textures of beads and combine them in different ways to make all sorts of different creations.

I have a great time creating patterns (using either BeadTool or BeadCreatorPro), and I'm constantly amazed at what happens when I switch the colors in a particular pattern. Just check out these four different beadwoven cuffs, all created from the same design!
Four very different looks, and all from a single design.

I love your pattern. It reminds me of a "Jackson Pollock" painting.
I just purchased bead tool and I can't wait to use it.
I need to get printer ink first.

Thanks you for comment on my blog.

it IS amazing, from the simplest to the most complex pattern!
All of these is just as stunning, but in a whole new way!

Way cool, Marylou. It is really amazing that they are all the same pattern but you would never know to look at it. Amazing what different colors will do.

Cool way to illustrate the effect of colour. I love the red, white and black one best. Which makes me wonder what it would look like in red, white and blue!

Your cuffs are great. It's amazing how different they look even though they're the same design.
