This beautiful beaded mask doesn't have to be just for Mardi Gras, despite its name. Mask designer Catherine Rose, created this Venetian styled gem by hand-weaving Czech glass seed beads in a off-loom Native American brick stitch. A sterling silver chain accented with Swarovski crystals holds it in place on your face. This 1 s lilac and black, but Rose is happy to custom make one for you in custom colors of your choice.
Award-winning artist Linda Hawkins specializes in crocheted wire creations. This gorgeous mask is made of a variety of metal wires, Swarovski crystals, and glass beads. She uses several techniques, which range from hollow form construction, flat form manipulation, and single chain stitches to offer this mask its 3D shapes. The beads and crystals were applied after the mask was completed. You will see more of Hawkins'works on display at the National Bead Museum in Phoenix Arizona.
