Sitting down all day with leg propped up is giving me a good opporyunity to do some things I wouldnt normally do.
For example finishing off some of those UFO's that seem to lurk in every crafters workspace.
This was a little piece of freeform peyote that had been gathering dust, and I extended it into a bracelet.
Bracelets are a great way to experiment and learn new techniques, they dont take too long or too many beads.
I'm a big fan of Beth Stone's two books - Seed Bead Stitching and More Seed Bead Stitching. (As I may have mentioned before!)
This is a tubular peyote stich bracelet from one of the books
and a diagonal weave necklace with pearls from another,
and a frosted glass and pearl bracelet.
I dug out some of my beading magazines and inspected the bookmarked pages.
This is my simplified version of a bracelet by Elizabeth Nance from Bead and Button magazine Issue 93.
Hers is wider and uses more crystals, so mine is more economical.
But I didnt get the increasing for the crystal inclusion quite right, (not that you can probably tell!) so I made another one.
I am currently making another version of the ruffle bracelet I made last week.
Added to that I have been knitting as well, but havent managed to take photos yet!
That involves moving!
