Zig-Wing Exploration

I’m certain most, if not all of you, have heard about the announcement of Contemporary Geometric Beadwork III (AND the Pattern Book AND the colouring book) and I’m sure, you’re all just as excited as I am. It’s an incredible labour of love for Kate and her amazing team, the editors, the translators, the illustrators and of course the beaders. Seeing all the beautiful work that the online community has been churning out spurred me in to action. It was time for Jenny to try a Zig-Wing.

Of course, I’m a tinkerer, so I couldn’t just reproduce the original Zig-Wing without making my own changes.

Then I got an idea to make a tiny Zig-Wing, which lead me to this.

And then things got out of control.

The possibilities for the Zig-Wing and friends are truly endless.
