Mary Yaeger Design: Mary Yaeger’s New Web Site and Blog

January 7, 2015

Here is a link to my new web site and blog:, where I feature my beadwork and other things.

Why did it take so long to figure out I could just add design to my name, and everything else would fit under that?

I’ve been busy with lots of new beadwork designs. Many incorporate Lilly Pilly shell pendants:

Stuff Beaders Say.

Yes, that is hilarious. I’m glad I stopped by Jean Campbell’s blog and found this.

An owl shows itself. With one of those flaming S Cal sunsets that I forgot about, I’m already in awe; then this quite large bird, powerful, full-feathered wings not a seagull, but whitish, comes swooping down and lands in a tree long enough for us (that is Nikki & me) to see the large dark eyes in the moon face. No mistaking it, an owl, not even a small one, either!

It very much resembled this owl, apparently in decline. Well, thanks for showing yourself, lovely owlie!


Behind the Design: the London Olympic Games 2012

November 4, 2011

I got inspired by my second look at the 2012 London Olympics brand:

It seems to say “don’t worry, be happy, include everyone and forget about terrorists lying in wait to blow us all up.”

The clever and eccentric logo developed for the London Olympic Games defies the stereotype that the British are stodgy and elitist. Under their reserved exterior lurks a mischief and exuberance. And yes, the Olympic Games could serve to change lives rather than express the domination of a few countries over others.

Lovely! Brilliant!


Design Pattern with Visual Thesaurus

Did Visual Thesaurus plan this, or is it just a happy accident?

If you look up the word “design,” then select the connector between pattern and figure,  voila, this lovely shape fans out, just like a peacock!
