For the Guys

I'm a "girlie girl" who loves pretty things so just about everything I make is for women. This time I decided to make my grandson a bracelet to commemorate his first Fathers Day.

Vintage China Challenge Entry

I've just finished my entry for the ArtFire Beadweavers challenge. The theme is "Antique China" and my entry is a tribute to Aynsley's popular Pembroke pattern. It's a beadwoven choker composed of seed beads, pressed glass and lucite and is woven in peyote, brick and freeform netting stitches and accented by St. Petersburg openwork leaves.

You can see all the entries and vote for your favorite here from June 14-26.
