This weekend, I visited my favorite local bead store to learn a new beadweaving stitch from my beading mentor, a very nice gal named “Emi.” Once you learn a new stitch, then creativity can take over. Anyhow, the stitch I learned is called a “Russian Spiral.” Here is my practice piece:
As soon as I had the stitch down, I moved to my first actual piece of jewelry, a necklace. Here it is so far:
This helix looking stitch is very tubular… it has dimension and feels interesting. Once I have my proper length, then I use a decreasing peyote stitch to make an end cap, then attach the clasp.
Today, I’m back in my quilting studio quilting. I need to finish my current quilt so I can get to my next one.
