I feel that I havent been very productive lately.
Well at least it is a quiet time of year.
So I have been allowing myself to do some playing.
I was playing around with different beads in different colours in peyote and brick stitch, and I was going to make it into a pendant, when a friend asked was it a brooch?
I added a vintage glass button, sewed on a brooch back and 'voila!'
- a brooch.
This set me to thinking that if I stitched a base of peyote stitch that is big enough to take a brooch pin and if I then added on segments of different stitches using different beads, I could drape and fold the pieces, sew them down and have a brooch with a flat back.
My first attempt - it is very free-form looking -
but there is definitely a possibility here.
Watch this space!
