There has been more experimentation at the beading berth. I continue to probe the possibilities presented by new bead shapes. This bracelet has both super duos and spikes, which are the new shapes, along with pretty much every other size bead I have in stash – 6º, 8º, 11º, drops and druks. A veritable pantheon of beads!
The stitching was fairly standard, a modified right angle weave, which wove from side to side. I am ever so pleased with how the bracelet turned out. The colors, while dark, are very rich. The textures ask to be touched. The spikes suggest a certain edginess.
