Work in Progress: Spring Bracelets

This week I’m continuing with my top secret prototypes, including some pretty spring bracelets. I can’t show you the projects just yet, but the colors are proving to be really fun. Green and lilac and soft beige together have just the right amount of flowery sweetness. I've also been trying out some new threads, and hopefully I'll be able to share the thread brand comparison later this year, as promised.

Spring Bracelets in Progress

It’s been many, many years since I've worked on a single design multiple times for practice and to test out patterns and color. What’s interesting is how much inspiration is coming through for other designs while I work steadily on repeats. Next week I'm taking a quick break to make a new collar with colors that really pop.

Embroidered Medallion Pendants

The medallion project is also coming along nicely. Three are finished so far with more on the way. What makes these pieces really great is that I didn't design them - more on that later!

What are you working on this week?
