It was a tough hop for me, as 3 of those 6 stitches are brand new to me.
But I stuck with it and did pretty darn ok with them.
Thanks for being here and for taking the time to look at my work and the work of all the other Hoppers listed at the end of this post. And a big thanks to those that signed up to participate in this one!
Reclaimed Sari Ribbon, compliments of Darn Good Yarn.
I favor bracelets, and was sure this was going to become one. But WOW~is Cellini stiff! So I used it as a necklace segment instead.
My first time doing Cellini.
I went back to an old favorite pattern of mine with square stitch. I call it the Gallery Bracelet. It is the first class I ever taught. I originally used Swarovski cubes in my Gallery Bracelets. But when I was at a bead show with Cynthia and saw these beautiful carnelians, I knew I needed to go back to this pattern and replace the crystals with carnelian. I couldn't be happier with the look of the new and improved Gallery Bracelet!
My First Russian Spiral! Normally, I have very tight tension when I beadweave. This is really loose. I am not sure if that is normal for Russian Spiral, or if I was just really relaxed when I made it. It is really comfortable on my wrist.
Brick Stitch:here! It is brick and ladder. I put labradorite donuts on mine. I made this design a while back but never got to teach it. I was thrilled to finally get that chance with Cynthia. She took to it superfast.
This one is a brick stitch with a pearl in the center, anchored with the Reclaimed Sari Ribbon from Darn Good Yarn. I like the Preppy/Bohemian split personality of this one.
Brick around a peacock pearl. The chain is 2-hole tiles.
