Don't you just love this! It just screams spring to me! I would just totally love to create something this stunning! I have tried to make a beaded cuff a couple of times and I will sew the focal piece on and for whatever reason I just cannot seem to get past that step. Either I sew the focal on crooked or I just get totally stumped on what beads I want to use so it always ends up being a UFO. (My UFO pile is getting rather large) Perhaps one day I will be lucky enough to create a piece like this that I can be proud of. Perhaps I am being to ambitious as I am still pretty new to beading. Who knows!?
One thing that I have recently discovered is CRAW! CRAW is Cubic Right Angle Weave. I really love it and it works up really fast for such a great result. I stumbled across this video on youtube from one of the former Bead Mavens Ms Heather Collins.
Heather makes learning this stitch a breeze and to be honest I really wish that she would do one on St. Petersburg stitch as that is the next one that I want to learn. I have created a piece using CRAW that I will show you on the 25th for the 7000 bracelets for hope project. Speaking of that I really need to go get that piece mailed. I hope everyone is doing well.
Peace and <3
