Rivolis with a new twist

These look a lot like the rivolis I have beaded before, but there is a difference. Instead of a combination of seed beads and delicas, these have three different size delicas--10s, 11s, and 15s. This means that the 15s cinch the final row of beading much neater.
The rivolis shown are 27mm Cathedral, 15mm x 20mm Heliotrope, and 18mm Sapphire.
(These rivolis are very difficult to photograph so that the "fire" in the bead shows.)

January bjp pin

As soon as I finished the heart for February, I knew that I wanted January to look icy. (sometimes ideas are a bit backward) NH this winter has been very snowy and cold, so icy seemed very appropriate. The checkerboard is slightly raised so that icicles are dripping down from the raised layer.
