WIP Metallic Herringbone Bracelet


After putzing around with some red swarovski hearts for a week, I gave up. I was trying to combine cubes and hearts and it just wasn't working for me. So I put them away and will try
again some time in the future.
Yesterday and today have been so cold, we are not even venturing out of the house. I started
this herringbone stitch bracelet yesterday and should have it finished tonight or tomorrow.
This is worked with delicas in color numbers
1831 Duracoat Galvanized Silver
21 Steel
26 Metallic Dark Steel
40 Bright Copper

As you can see, I am working on a reed. The type you use for a kabbob or reed air freshener.
It makes it very easy to stitch you piece and slides right off when you reach your desired length.

Hi it is cold here too. I have foot warmers on LOL. I too work on a reed. They are perfect for beading on and they are inexpensive too.
Great minds think alike yeahhh...
Have a great day
