Aside from compiling the list, we were very hands off with this hop. Freedom with beads is a wonderful thing! Thanks for making it a breeze :-)
The stitches for this hop are Netting, Chenille, Chevron, and Spiral Rope. We all had to do Netting and then pick at least one other stitch. I know Chevron fairly well, so I picked Chenille. I LOVE IT!!! It makes a nice rope and it makes for nice beaded beads (which will show up in future projects).
Here is a photo of a Chevron Bracelet I did a few years ago:
Size 11 and size 15 seed beads, Swarovski flowers, red drops.
Here is my first Chenille Bracelet...there will be many many more in the future:
Size 15 seed beads, copper and sterling toggle, leather compliments of Cynthia, copper wire with size 11 seed beads.
And my Netting Necklace:
Size 11 and size 15 seeds beads, druks, a button clasp, and a Manhattan Schist Rock from Monmouth Beach, NJ (it has a lovely sparkle which doesn't show up on camera...nothing shows up on camera today...gloomy, rainy, blah). Oh, and a zigzag weave chain.
I wore this out a few times and people were asking to touch it~Love it when that happens :-)
When I set out to learn netting, my intent was to make a full netted collar necklace. It took 13 hours of screwing up to come up with this tiny panel. I decided to embellish the panel and make the zig zag chain. I took a few ceramic cabs and did netting around them, but once I laid them on the panel they didn't look right. Then my head went where it always goes : how about a rock?! I recently purchased a Black Brazilian Kyanite. I rarely purchase rocks but we needed each other. It is really cool and edgy and I thought a pocket with this wild rock jumping out was just what this dainty white net panel needed. Well, the kyanite would not stay in the pocket so I scrapped the pocket and made all sorts of beaded straps to hold it down. It looked like Beadweaving Bondage...a little TOO edgy. So I gave up on the kyanite and looked through my free rock stash and came up with this Manhattan Schist...which obeyed right from the start ;-)
Here is the list of all the Lovely Weavers you need to go visit today...I am really eager to visit them and see what they did~surely it is fabulous.
Thanks Ladies~you always make these hops a pleasure. And Thank You Therese~you are always a wonderful partner.
