|St Petersburg Chain|
(c) Beading Daily Tutorial
Designed by Callie Mitchell
St Petersburg stitch is very quick to work, and easy to grasp.
Callie's tutorial finishes her bracelet with a clever pendant/flower clasp - I didn't have the swarovski pendant which is why I settled on doing the peyote toggle. Sometimes its a case of adapting according to what's already in your stash!
Guess what ... to keep my Post to a 'readable' one, I'm going to finish off here but I do still have a lot to say. Whilst reluctant to make empty blogging promises - I will be blogging again very shortly ... (honestly).
I'd like to introduce you to three new friends who have recently joined us:
A multi-talented crafter who loves producing a variety of projects and sells her work on her own website. Including ... jewellery, hats, scarves, hair accessories and household items. Well worth a peek, I'd say.
A creative lady, exhibits art crafts throughout New York to California. Leslie's work is eye-catching unusual ... belonging to many creative teams also. Love steampunk, reformed work, alternate jewellery? You will 'lurve' her Etsy Store.
A lover of cross stitch and quilting Kristen started her passion with Beads in 2009. A fact which is hard to believe, given the amazing work she produces. Kristen jokes if you follow her 'you may be in for a bumpy ride', I'd have to say its quite the opposite; its a path you'd love to follow!
You will have noticed by now, that a majority of my Friends, whilst sharing a strong link to jewellery making all enjoy all manner of crafts - its just the creativity shining through. I hope that you take the time to visit them and are inspired to learn a new craft. I know I find myself drawn to many new ideas and hope to do so for a long, long time.
Catch up again soon ...
