Pastel Pearls

Inspired by the Work Life theme for the new Swarovski 2017 A/W collection, I’m making a stacking set of different chunky bracelets that should transform into a big bold necklace… well that’s the plan! I spotted this tubular pattern from Nicole Starman and thought it would work well with 3mm Crystal  Pastel Yellow pearls and the new dark grey TOHO Demi rounds. img_6355

Although ropes are my favourite method of bead stitching this is the first time I’ve worked Chenille stitch. The rope is hollow and so I think I’ll need to fill the hole with a spare bit of kumihimo rope or maybe a leather cord then finish  with the chunky magnetic clasp from I-Beads, who also stock the pearls and Toho Demis.
