Sir Elton John was on TV a couple of nights ago, in one of those biographical specials. Having been a fan of his music for years, I had the idea during the show of creating a beadweaving pattern for a piano. I'm sure others have created piano patterns before, so I actually went to look to make sure I wasn't inadvertently creating a design that already existed! After a few Google searches, I decided to just go for it, and here's the result.
Even my husband, who rarely comments on my beadweaving, likes this one. Lest you think my husband doesn't appreciate my creations, I think the main reason he doesn't comment is that he can't see up close without his glasses, and beadwoven pieces definitely require an up-close look!
I don't want Sir Elton to feel bad, but I wound up naming the cuff after a song by another of my favorite singers, Billy Joel. I just listed Piano Man in my Etsy Shop. Maybe I'll have to create another, more colorful version, called Goodbye Yellow Brick Road...
