Beadweaving Week :: Sprout Green Ladder

Several weeks ago I showed you a bracelet that was on my bead table (below). At the time it was not quite finished, but I wanted to make sure to come back and post it once I was done. 

With this one, I was practicing a new pattern that Christine showed me that she calls "Something Fine." This is her pattern, and she named it after the Jackson Brown song because it reminds her of sheet music. You can see the darker green rounds do look like notes on sheet music!


It is such a sweet, delicate pattern with ladder bands in between simple stringing. I loved the pattern right away and wanted her to show me. This bracelet gave me my first successful piece with ladder stitch, and I've been using it non-stop ever since!  

This is part of a beadweaving series that I'm running this week for the upcoming A Time to Stitch Challenge by Christine of One Kiss Creations & Therese of Therese's Treasures. The Blog Hop reveal is next Wednesday, May 15.

I love the soft green beads. Very spring-y, especially combined with the light blue beads! Lovely!
