I am currently working on a necklace. My inspiration is the colorful Audrey of homerunballerina. More about that when I post the tutorial later, but, for now, I can tell you that I used a bead weaving technique which is really quite easy.
I’m posting a couple of photos of the prototype.
I’m not entirely happy with this. It feels a little heavy. But that’s the beauty of working on a prototype first. Notice the needles and the loosely-tied strings? As much as my fingers itch to tie those knots and cut those string off permanently, I have to walk away from it and do something else, then stand back and try to see how I really feel about it now that my hands have been given a rest.
At least now I know what to do next and I’m liking the idea.
Watch out for the tutorial!
