I have been needle weaving bracelets galore! I find this a relaxing and meditative activity not in part because every design I do is improvised and therefore completely unique. I invent them as I do them, which means sometimes I have to undo something that really isn’t working or drastically change the concept as I’m working on the bracelet.
This makes it so much fun for me. I never know what’s going to happen or what the piece will look like until it is “finished”. You can be certain that every bracelet is one of a kind.
You can see in the photo above the ‘Beaded Bead” where I created a tube in circulat peyote stitch and then made a slightly larger and shorter one as a “bead” that was slid onto it. With some added beads onto the silver, smaller tube to prevent the large “bead” from sliding off, I then finished the piece with a beaded chain and loop closure. This was a design that created itself in a way as I had no idea of what it would look like until I had finished it. What a fun process!
