This time we had to create something with a net stitch (mandatory) and chose one of the other stitches between Spiral rope, Chevron stitch and Chenille.
For my first piece I've found an interesting tutorial on Youtube (sorry, I' can't find the link right now, will add it later) to create short pieces of rope in two colors with the ends of a third color, a kind of beaded beads. I've played a little with these pieces and came out with this necklace:
(sorry for the blurry pictures - if you click on them it's a little better)
For the pendant part I've made a rectangle and tried different combinations of including something inside the rectangle, but didn't like any of them and preferred it just like it is. I think is the minimalist part of me speaking (lol).
So, what do you think - what should I do with the pendant part? Any ideas will be welcome.
Let's go to the mandatory part of the challenge - netting. Well, I run out of time and beads and all I can show you is the work in progress ... I need one more evening or two to finish it.
The base is Chevron stitch and the pattern is from Marcia DeCoster's book Beads in Motion. I've just used a different size of beads and adjusted it a little. I'll include also a triangular polymer clay cabochon, made by me ...
This is from my side and you'll be welcome if you would like to come back in few days to see the finished necklace.
