A Little Sleight of Wrist
Topic: Beads

Today I finished up a project from the 'long overdue' category!

Two years ago, at the end of February, I attended the Sew and Stitchery Expo in Puyallup Washington and one of the classes I took was  a beading workshop. The project was a bracelet called Anastasia and it was taught by the designer, Amy Loh-Kupser of i-bead.com. She had lots of kits so we got to choose the colorway we wanted.

In the time we had in the workshop I got three units of the beading done. When I came home I put all the supplies away and didn't think about picking it up again until I consolidated about a dozen to-do lists and noticed a note on one of them for 'beading'.

Today was the day! It did take several hours but I got it all done and I love it!

Then I decided to play a bit more and take some 'beauty shots' of it using my photography light box.


Because the connectors between the units are centered itallows a lot of drape to the piece.


As complicated as it looks this only uses no 11 seed beads, no 5 seed beads and two tones of two-hole beads.


I used a loosely rolled scrapbook paper to hold the bracelet for pictures.


Here is a view of the clasp which was provided in the kit.

So, now my new bracelet is ready to wear!

And when I pulled this out of the to-do pile I realized that I had bought another bracelet kit (different pattern) and a necklace kit. More beading in my future.
