mini beaded kaleidocycle

Miniature beaded kaleidocycle made by hinging beaded tetrahedrons so they can rotate.  Inspired first by Susannah Thomson and then others at Contemporary Geometric Beadwork    They will have a pattern available soon.  Next for me will be a larger version with patterned sides.

3-D ATC

This week I was challenged to create a 3-D ATC.  Intriguing, but ATCs are flat!  I store them in plastic trading card pages, they have to be flat.  So I layered that restriction on the idea of a tiny, ATC-sized, fabric sculpture, realized that meant creating something interactive, with parts that move, and…  MAGIC!  So here is the first of many ideas that came to me:
