As I was finishing up the cuff, I pondered a few different ways that I could use these amethyst AB druks. In order to work around a color that doesn’t usually fit with my designs, I’d have to make them blend in with seed beads in just the right way. There aren’t enough for netting, and too many for lariat fringe, so I decided to go with a new rope fringe necklace. The design I imagined had longer, thicker fringe than my usual pieces, so I’m changing things up a bit. The Montana sapphire rope will be done in tubular right angle weave, which will produce a slightly daintier base than herringbone. I’m also going to add some layered fringe, though I haven’t quite worked out the perfect pattern yet.
What are you making right now?
