Work in Progress: Ocean Cuff

This week I’m just about ready to finish the first project in the peyote stitch Master Class series. I don’t want to reveal too much right now, but the first installment will include some stitch basics and a practice project. The cuff has a very simple beach-inspired pattern that accentuates the stitch but doesn’t over complicate things. I’m very excited to get the series started!

I haven’t had a chance to add any work to the herringbone necklace, so it’s still sitting in the wings. It’s always a challenge to coordinate the projects I want or need to work on with photography time, especially in winter when there’s so much less light to work with. Hopefully I’ll be able to get some serious work in over the weekend. If there’s time to spare, I might even add a few rows to the messy RAW project.

What are you making right now?
