Yesterday I mentioned working on a watch band. I used a watch face I already owned, but didn't wear because the leather band was too tight. I started this in our last local bead club meeting on Jan 10 - Blue Ridge Beaders. It is an embellished ladder stitch using two needles, which is awkward for me... I seem to be all thumbs! LOL
Here is a detail of the stitch:
I'm also working on a flat spiral bracelet in purples. I made a beaded bead and loop closure, but think the loop needs some embellishment, it looks a little wimpy for the rest of the bracelet, I think:
I seem to always need to work on multiple things... I guess I'm a process person that way. Yesterday I was playing with my beads and found some lepidolite coins ... most were pink, but these five were mostly gray and yellow. I also found a slightly larger yellow calcite coin, and thought... hmmm ... the gray coins look like moons from a Hubble photo, and the yellow calcite looks like the sun... what if I design a necklace around the concept of Sun-Moons-Stars? LOL So this is what I've done so far, I also plan to make a bracelet with the extra coin bead:
What do you think? I'm stringing it on doubled fireline and have a simple hook and eye finding for the closure. I've also added 8mm crystal fire polish, 4mm green iris fire polish and the teensiest 2mm silver beads.
