And here’s an adaptation of what I’m told is a friendship bracelet design. Seems to work. 🙂
And here I’ll put in the snarling about single-bead base rows, damn you universe.
Seriously, single-bead base rows (the widest center row in these earrings) are tough as heck to stitch new rows onto. It takes a while. I end up bending my needle all over the place. (Keeping pliers handy helps.) And it is so, so easy to get the needle through on the wrong side and have to pull it back out and try to get back under the correct side of the thread. These take as long, if not longer, as the diamonds beads, even with about half the beadcount, because of general fussiness.
But it does give pretty results. And an interesting nubbly texture to the fingers.
