The designer set out to create a lacy, spiky, organic anything. The six-sided hexagon is a favorite of the natural world, from honeycombs to snowflakes. These samples are worked in rounds from the center out, forming a brick-stitch sort of lace. While every "unit" has the same number of beads, each round will have six increase units, one at each corner, to keep the netting flat.
Required Materials: Seed beads, beading thread. See project for complete list.
Tools Needed: Beading needle, scissors. See project for complete list.
Techniques Used: Netting
