Back from blogging haitus!! Oh yes. I have not been paying attention to my jewelry blog, but there are many excuses, - travelling, redoing the house after the December floods, catching up with friends on social media , but the most important one is that I`m truly hooked to learning ( and sometimes discarding ) new techniques and creating patterns for myself.
A couple of months ago . I decided to try my hand at peyote stitch, not for the first time though,making the pattern and getting the shape took some time . Not sure of how it would turn out, tried both fireline thread as well as Nymo in each pendant. The only mistake I think I made is that for the second piece I think I should have not woven very tightly as I now observe a slight distortion in the pattern. Or it could be as because I started the pattern from the center. Not sure , anyways am happy that it is not so visible in the final necklace .
It was fun creating the pendants, and I loved the colors . Adding the beaded beads I made, I combined Indian glass beads in black and green with an adjustable thread necklace. Of course making the beaded beads with peyote stitch did take some time but then I am quite happy with how the pattern came out finally.
Hope you liked the necklaces .
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Ciao for now , will be back with something new soon…..
