It is time for the A Time To Stitch 5 reveal. Back in May 2012, I asked Christine Altmiller if she would be interested in co-hosting a stitching challenge. Where we would pick a couple of stitches and asked that if y'all were interested in learning bead weaving to try our challenge and of course it was open to all bead weavers no matter their experience. We had 21 to sign up and a few that had never worked with seed beads before. It was so much fun that Christine and I decided to keep this challenge going, so every three or four months we put out the challenge with new stitches and ideas. ATTS 5's challenge was to take any stitch you prefer and make 3 bracelets with that same stitch using either different beads or different colors to show how one stitch could change in the way it looks just by changing the color or the beads used.
I got started on this challenge right away and as the result of stating early I was able to do nine different bracelets in three different stitches. I chose Peyote, Herringbone, and Right Angle Weave. Here is what I created.
The first bracelet I used size 8 silver lined clear seed beads and size 3 mm bicones in assorted colors in 6 count even peyote.
The second bracelet is the same style as the first I changed the color to silver lined size 8 seed beads and 3 mm brown glass pearls.
The third bracelet I used size 11 triangles in matte Hematite and shiny Hematite in 8 count even peyote.
The first bracelet I used size 11 triangles in green iris and blue iris with a Czech glass button for the clasp.
The second bracelet I used purple 4 mm cubes and size 9 seed beads in purple iridescent with a hard plastic decorative button clasp.
The third bracelet I used 1.5 mm cubes in matte gold iris and blue iris with a slide clasp. (this one is my favorite)
The first bracelet (from the bottom) is done with 4 mm orange AB bicones and 3 mm Indian pink bicones and green size 11 seed beads.
The second bracelet is 4 mm peach glass pearls, 3 mm brown glass pearls, and bronze size 11 seed beads.
The third bracelet is 4 mm red bicones, 3 x 1.5 mm roundels, silver size 11 seed beads.
