Zentangles and Beads

It's no wonder that Zentangles caught my fancy. Even though the process of beading and Zentangle is a bit different, there is a common thread in that beautiful beadwork relies on beautiful patterns. I see it in this piece I designed a couple months ago. Patterns are comforting. I am wondering if that's why so many people are drawn to beading, too.
Bead embroidery is a lot like tangling with beads...you never know where it will take you. Hopefully I can dig up some photos to post. If any of you have some to share, send them!

  1. I think you have a point. Beadweaving, chain-making and zentangling all have a happy repetitious element, and you get to slowly see something gorgeous develop as you go....
