Phew, this one tested my beading abilities. But that's what learning is about, right? At one stage I got a bit casual and stopped referring to the printed pattern, just watching the bead patterns emerge. That was fine until there was a mistake. Then I couldn't find my place on the pattern and couldn't work out what mistake I'd made in the threading! I had to unravel to a 'known point'. After that I was more careful, keeping track of where I was on the pattern and checking the beading regularly. The pattern came from L Beads, here's a link.
I think it was worth the effort I had to put in!
Wow! Beautifully done!ReplyDelete
Absolutely worth the effort 👍💖ReplyDelete
Is it possible to alter the number of beads (girthwise) in the same rope, with slight tweaking of pattern if required ? Eg. Starting with an 8 bead pattern and moving to 10 and back to 8
Your image above gave me this thought.
I think so. But beyond my capabilities to alter a pattern in that way at the moment. I tried to show different parts of the pattern, but it distorted the look of the necklace somewhat.Delete
Far from 'distort', I think your necklace looks superb and 'deliberate' 😄! 💙💙💙Delete
I get that transitioning between beads can be quite an advanced skill. You have been extremely diligent in your experiments 😍
Wonderful necklace!! :)ReplyDelete
