New accessories

Over the last few weeks I have been working on some new accessories, namely necklaces and have learnt a few new techniques as well.

The first is a bead spiral with the netting stitch for the smaller beads.

Here is a closer look at the beads in the spiral.

Next was something to go with the greens in my wardrobe, so to take a break from needlework and get back to using the tools, I worked with jump rings and created Byzantine chains and then added beads in between.

This is better shot of the colours and you can see the Byzantine chain a bit better.

Sewing news is that the Minoru is very close to be being finished, only the elastic at the waist and hem are left to do!!

Unfortunately, I have to pack up my sewing room for guests to stay, but do plan on cutting out my knit top for the SWAP and setting up my machines to sew on Anzac Day at the dining table, I will just pretend I am at a Guild Meeting Skype Emoticons

  1. Thank you ladies for your lovely comments, I am wearing the spiral beads today.Sue I am having lessons at a local beading place, she is very patient and has some great designs. Luckily she understands my need to match the colours to my garments 🙂

    Absolutely love your spiral beads. I nearly picked up a similar kit at the last Rosehill craft show, except with criss-cross beading, but they had run out, of course. It is still on my list. I now know where to go when I run into problems – can't believe my luck. Both of yours are so glamorous.
