This is my entry for the Etsy Beadweavers August 2012 "HOT HOT HOT" Competition. It has been so HOT HOT HOT here in the Midwest United States that we are in a state of extreme drought. With temperatures soaring every day, and an ever-blazing hot sun, everything is turning shades of gold and brown. The beaded Swarovski rivoli focal and the golden, yellow and orange colors of the beads reflect the drought conditions around me.

The approximate length of this piece is 24 inches. It contains a Swarovski rivoli, Czech fire-polished glass, bugle beads and seed beads.

This piece was woven by hand, with each bead attached individually with several passes of strong nylon Fireline thread, an exacting and time-consuming process. With proper care, this piece should last for generations.
