perhaps we are all conservative
yet we take things that are offbeat and outcast at times
and propose a better life that is more inclusive

of the individuals in a society

that is the liberal way

(2022), 2.25x2.25", delica beads (iridescent 14k gold plated, blue gold, black oil slick, slate grey), blue gold Swarovski chatons, fireline

I've made these "crystal balls" before. They are based on a design by Jean Power, but working up these little triangular settings for some sparkly crystals never gets old. For this ball I chose some gorgeous gold fumed chatons with a beautiful lilac blue inner fire and matched the colors up with plenty of iridescent Delica textures. I also tried not stuffing the ball before I stitched it closed and it worked really well. The beads hold their spherical shape without any additional help.
