Zig Zag

 I have to keep my wits about me as I tat the final split ring row of this choker. I added the bugle beads to the long picots of the top row before I started, holding them in place with a thread. I have to join two beaded picots to each split ring of this row, and remember to weave the red foundation row through the ring before closing it. I do get into a rhythm after a while, which helps.

The pattern link is on the right of the page, Choker pattern. I think the pattern could be improved, perhaps some photos of work in progress added. I must finish working on five necklaces for an order (this is number 3) and then I'll have a go at that.

I'm going to have to change my comment settings so that Anonymous can't comment. I'm reluctant to do that because I do get genuine comments under 'Anonymous', but I'm being swamped by spam. I had hoped that limiting the comments while I was on holiday might discourage the spammers, but it's getting worse and worse. I had better act! Apologies to those who will no longer be able to make genuine comments.


  1. I love black and red combination. Beautiful done!

  2. I am interested how you work the splits rings into each other, so I now going to follow your link.
    I had the same problem a few months ago the spam has stopped but do I change it now or leave it on, I did not put the word thing on it drives me nuts on some blogs.

    1. Yes, I don't really want to put the word verification on, I hate trying to do it on other blogs. I'm hoping that by saying Anonymous can't comment, most people can. I'm glad to get some comments today!

  3. That is a very nice chocker and red and black go so well together. That is an interesting idea to add all the beads first.
    Sorry about the spam, I have a couple of family members that comment on occasion, but do so anonymously. I get a bit of spam on occasion, but not very much. I do use moderation but don't use the captcha verification.

  4. Oh, that looks so complicated! But so pretty!

    I am going to have to change my blog as well because of a very busy Anonymous...
    Fox : )

  5. Just testing the captcha thingy as you mentioned it!!!
