checkerboard bracelet

Happy Boxing Day!  I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and have eaten and drunk far too much?

Today's post is a bracelet I made at a workshop at The Bead Shop Nottingham last month.  I wore it on Friday and realised that I hadn't blogged about it.


It's a Right Angle Weave bracelet made of fire polished beads.  The class sample was a single colour, but I wanted to make a checkerboard effect.  The photo above was taken in the class and shows a range of sample edgings I was adding as I'd finished it quite quickly.  I made a few, then decided on one and so undid it.


The bottom edge is the same as the pattern that Steph wrote for the workshop.  The top edge is my own design, I think it looks like lace.


I love the fire polished beads, I wish I'd bought some now!

Nice! I'm at work today :( I had a small beading flashback- isn't the edging you've done called picot stitch or did I make that up?

I like that. I think your edging looks like a tiara, too!

That is gorgeous. So wintry and the lacy top looks like snowflakes.
