Remember last week, just finishing this bangle (well an identical one!!), when the beads scattered to all corners of the earth, leaving me 'speechless'.
So, here it is, restored. In fact, reinvented but this time using a very strong illusion thread. Surprisingly this also gave it more elasticity; allowing it to slip on to the wrist ever so easily.
I still have plans to make a necklace with this technique and spotted some delightful bugle beads which I couldn't resist getting. Not sure whether they'll work - once home they seemed a lot shorter than these red bugles? We'll see how it pans out ....
I must say how pleased I am that Ros has joined us:
Hello and Welcome To:
- Ros Made Me
Ros claims to be an 'all-round crafter', who will try anything from needlework, quilting, applique, knitting and a 101 other crafts as the mood takes. Now if you pay her a visit you will see that she is certainly multi-talented and in particular I find her knitting in outstanding. I love browsing around her blog and Ros also excels with some great tutorials.
I'm working on a necklace which I've designed, incorporating the 'russian spiral' and the 'spiral chain' technique. I was tempted to stop when it reached bracelet length but I think as a necklace it will really be a statement piece. This time the focus is on Dalmation Jasper semi-precious nuggets: so cute!
Had it not been for the temptations of the sun it would have been completed; that and a couple of rethreads!!! Yes, my design went a bit off schedule and had to be put in its place again. So, there we have it.
