This is my second bracelet project from Mikki Ferrugiaro. Her patterns can be viewed and purchased here. (Hey! I figured out links!)
I changed the color scheme a bit.
It was supposed to have black leaves, and green where the gray is on mine. I thought that was a bit weird.
It wasn’t until I began working on it that I realized it was odd-count peyote stitch. While not difficult, it does add an extra step to every second row, and therefore takes a bit longer. It took me several days to complete this, but partly because I’m trying to be a better housewife, and made up a list of different things to accomplish every day before I can bead. Also, the book I’m listening to while working is not good at all. So why am I listening to it? It’s the last in a series of otherwise pretty good books.
I also figured out how to do a different closure. Not those frustrating tubes again, but a beaded bead, which was so much easier.
It still is too big for my hand. A bit better, I actually have to push it over my hand, instead of just sliding it on, like the last one. At least it won’t accidentally fall off if I fling my hand too vigorously.
Do here is the finished project:
Broken Needles: 1
Broken Beads: None
Stabbed fingers: 1
Cats yelled at for walking across my beads/strewing them across the floor: 1
