A Time To Stitch 4

Hi everybody! Welcome to my blog. Today is the reveal day for A Time To Stitch 4, a blog hop hosted by Therese Frank and Christine Altmiller. This is my first participation in this bead-weaving challenge.

In this edition, the 4th, everybody does net stitch which must be used in one of the pieces. The other stitches than can be used are spiral rope, chevron stitch and chenille stitch.

Besides netting stitch, I have chosen spiral rope. Here are my pieces. Click on any photo to enlarge.

This is a cuff bracelet made using net stitch. The seed beads are a bit irregular and this stitch demands a certain uniformity in beads, nevertheless I like the end result.

This is a bracelet made in net stitch with a picot. I love its amethyst colour. It's my favourite of all the pieces I've made.

A netted collar made with seed beads and faceted beads using vertical netting stitch and a picot. I was inspired by Ukranian and Russian beadwork designs where this kind of netting is often used.

For the second stitch, I have chosen spiral rope.

A bracelet using 5mm white pearls, 11/0 and 15/0 seed beads in grey colours.

Thank you lovely ladies, Therese and Christine, for creating and organising this event. I have learned a lot. Please tell me which your favourite piece is.

  1. Oh my Goodness, Ana! I LOVE them all for different reasons. The irregular beads in the netting must have been a challenge, but it gives the piece a really nice ancient look. The amethyst netting is gorgeous~very rich color and very much a statement. Love it!!! And the necklace is what I wanted to do but didn't. But you nailed it! It really is lovely. The pearl spiral is beautiful! You make the spiral look easy. I like how it is all about the pearls in that bracelet. It is thrilling to see all your pieces! Thanks so much for being a part of this hop :-D

  2. My favorite is the green netted collar. I just happen to love green, and the faceted beads add just the right amount of sparkle. So beautiful! The pearl bracelet is feminine and pretty, so versatile you could wear it with an evening dress or a pair of favorite well worn jeans. The other two netted cuffs are great too. Netting is just so fun and you have done very well with it. I enjoyed seeing each of your pieces.

  3. I really like all of them even though I'm not a big fan of seed beads. I certainly appreciate the artistry and talent you have shown. If I had to choose my favorite would be the greenish-blue cuff bracelet. Beautiful creations, Ana.

  4. Your pieces look so lovely, Ana :) Seed beads are above my abilities and eyesight, so I especially love to admire the work you have done here! If I MUST choose a favorite, it would be the pearl bracelet... it really is elegant, and pearls were very loved by my late mother.
