I had two designs done quickly (right) with plenty of fringe, and I revealed these for the last A Time to Stitch Blog Hop (#3). And just a shout out that we're now all working on our #4 ATTS with reveals coming in January. Check the link if you're interested in a little bead weaving.
This third wood focal was giving me pause. I knew pretty quickly I wanted to pair it up with a ceramic piece gifted to me by Melinda Orr (yes, I am one lucky girl getting all these wonderful beady items gifted to me!). The issue was what in the world was I going to do with necklace? I tried suede (too chunky and hung all wonky), I tried leather (thin and kinda meh?), so I set it aside and my UFO sat there on my bead table a loooooong, long time.
But then I remembered these lovely seed beads with a copper finish to them (also gifted to me from Christine, yep lucky girl I am). And I remembered this great stitch that Christine showed me called a zig-zag. The metal colored beads with this stitch almost resemble chain. Very cool effect. I kinda love how it looks. And so did one of my friends. This one lasted about a day in my shop inventory before my friend took it home.
