Work in Progress: Netting Experiment

This week I’m taking a short break from my top secret project, which means that I can actually show you what I’m working on - a new netting pattern idea. I’ve been wanting to experiment with different styles of collar, incorporating accent beads and nets in different ways for new pattern possibilities. The stitches I have so far aren’t quite what I want, so I’m scrapping this piece and starting again. Once I’ve worked out the pattern I like with just this simple palette, I can hopefully move on to some interesting variations.

Netted Collar in Progress

We’re nearly finished with the new pharaoh pendant in hot pink - all it needs is trim. It will be interesting to see how it all looks once the felt is cleared away, allowing the green beadwork to stand out a little more. Next I think we'll try out some dove beads!

What are you working on this week?

  1. I'm making small glass pins - I have like 25ish to go, then I'll start a new small handbag or scissors holders. Here's the link to my pins post -

    1. Last week I picked up some new Czech glass ovals with dove motifs. I'm going to suggest them for our next medallion!

  3. The beginning of the netted collar looks amazing. I like the color combination you used of cool blue with warm brown, it's very rich and also very classic.

  4. Just discovered your blog - and love it! This week-end I have about five projects going. Finished a bead crochet piece and am working on necklaces for my nieces using beads they purchased on vacation. Can't wait to see your top-secret design!
