Is disco dead?

20070822_fg19Remember these days? Fortunately I don’t. But I know that they existed.

I made a necklace yesterday that resembled the roller disco era (lol). I like the necklace, but it does look very “that 70s.” It’s a ladder design with two peyote tubes and one of my paper beads. I wanted to create the peyote tubes with colors that reflected the paper bead. Humorously, the colors also brought up memories from my past life as a roller disco queen.

The tubes are connected to an antiqued, gold-plated ladder chain. I had fun making this piece and had more fun laughing at the images it conjured up in my mind. Disco balls, rainbow legwarmers, chunky roller skates, feathered hair, shiny shirts . . . .

On a serious note:
Below is a necklace I finished a few days ago. I used peyote stitch to capture this stone. The stone was a difficult shape to capture with bead weaving, but I had fun trying. I kept the colors neutral and opted for a metal chain (same chain I used above), rather than a beaded chain.

Thanks for visiting!
