It's really beautiful. I like the color scheme on this one very much.

Do you sketch out a design, or do a full blown pattern/plan before starting a piece? It looks to complicated to just jump into, but I think a full planning stage would scare me too much to try something so intricate.

Just picture it: I'm trying to work out what is such a paradigm of virtue in having hairy, knobbley exoskeletal appendages which even were the to scale might afford me some uncomfortable moments in the high st in Exeter never mind the consternation amongst those that still think that a glimpse of stocking is still somewhat shocking... anyway, I'm sure you meant well and I shall endeavour as ever to take things in a spirit of positiyity... As ever, your Bro', Peter the honey-gatherer..

btw: can't seem to get the figure "8" out of my head perhaps it's a good omen.... the chinese lottery perhaps?.. XX ;) :D say hi to the folks for me...

lol, what a mind movie that is. Have you not heard the expression bees knees, or is this ironic? If not it means you are the best - so it was meant in a great way.

Whoosh the figure "8" thing - please explain.

c'mon sis.. this is me... I can type in "deadpan"! :D

Okay...,
1: "figure 8" is the shape of the dance that bees use to indicate pollen location to the hive on their return from scouting...
2:it is also an auspicious number for the chinese and 1 0r more 8's linked increase's the favourability of an outcome in lottery, love, etc... an 888 car numberplate is worth a fortune in the people's republic...

My dear friend! what an ENORMOUS compliment to give to another! I am truly overcome... (sniff)

It would be nice but I I'm actually quite poor and am making all this stuff to hopefully gain a bit of a reputation in this field of craftship to maybe sell a book and lecture, teach etc to earn some money...

also, don't really know anyone. had to move lots in different countries UK ... no really! I don't know anyone..

I have one friend in Exeter who really appreciates my stuff and bought one necklace but wants all my best pieces.. (:)), shes very well travelled and is astute with a house full of crafts from all over the world, but isn't a maker as such, she does play music...

I then wish you luck may you find that perfect place to roost and rest so that your talent can be passed on to a worthy candidate. I believe that we go places for a reason (sometimes not known to us at all). And i am greatful that you have that one friend who supports your efforts :HUG: and appreciates your work as i do. :glomp:

Thanks... er... I wasn't demonstrating any sadness at my lot... I have many stories to tell and am blest with so much! (of real value)I agree about the being in a place thingy, so many amazing serendipitous happenings am thinking of writing a set of stories illustrating synchronicity, serendipity and finding umbrellas and bits of cork just when you need them and being on an escalator at kings cross station in London at just the precise time to be able to... but thats for my stories at a later date... :heart:, P.

I really like this peace.
I generally like the jewelry you are doing. This peace has a very good balance between the knotting and the pearls.
Amount and placement wise that is. And the contrasting colors have a great effect too. :)

thank you for a nice comment... but thank you even more for the useful critique feedback.. don't get very much of that....

...and it's so difficult making stuff and not knowing why people like or dislike items...
...not that there's anything wrong with a pure compliment, or that it's obligatory to spend even more of ones precious time on one item when there is so much amazing stuff on dA.... whoa.. button got pushed there :D Anyhow, you understand i'm sure! thanks again, bye for now sweet human/wolfy/weaver/character! :hug:, P.

Oh, wow. I can see this around the neck of one of my characters. Blue is her favourite colour and she's the leader of an entire planet. This is beautiful. You do such beautiful work, Peter. :3

cool! now you have swords and necklace! would you like a design based on any of your Ranqa glyphs? l8er, lotsaluv as ever and hoping you're better now?... P. :wave:

Hrm... now you mention it... I actually have another symbol in my universe I would love to see in knotting/jewelry to do with this particular character... though I don't have the finances to buy it...
Her family crest is a blue four-petalled flower. It has petals shaped like a buttercup's ([link]) but blue with four instead of five petals. This character would wear this symbol wherever she can because the crest also symbolises the fact that she's basically royalty within her culture.

Also, I have put all the symbols for Ranqa up on dA if you want to have a go at different glyphs.

:3 And, thank you, I am getting better slowly. :3
