ATTS 4: A Time To Stitch 4 Challenge


Yay, it's finally blog hop time for the ATTS challenge hosted by Therese Frank and Christine Altmiller!  I chose to take three of the suggested four stitches to make a sampler bracelet. I left out the spiral rope stitch, but included a spiral by shaping the Chenille stitch tube with the help of a piece of thick aluminium wire. I also chose to include a piece of Chevron stitch and of course I included netting. The Netted Diamond is a pattern from the book "Zulu Inspired Beadwork" by Diane Fitzgerald.
 
 
 
Netted Diamonds make for some nice earrings as you can see in some older posts  on my blog here and here. To achieve the desired length for the bracelet I added a piece of handmade Full Persian chainmaille and a magnetic clasp, which makes putting on and off easy. All in all it was a great learning experience and I enjoyed learning a new beading stitch with Chenille (which I LOVE!). When is the next ATTS 4 Challenge? :)
 
And now have a look what the other participants did with two, three or all four stitches!

  2. I love that you used so many techniques in your bracelet. The colors are wonderful and I know it would be so much fun to wear and move around on the wrist -- so much to look at.

  9. Hi Dagi,
    Thank you for participating in mine and Christine's ATTS4 challenge. I love the bracelet you designed using all but one of the stitches in this challenges and combining wire with the bead woven samples is awesome. I hope you will join us for a ATTS 5.

  10. I love your bracelet. It's gorgeous and original too. The beaded 'samples' and the chain maille go together very well.

  11. That's such a clever idea: using multiple stitches in one piece. It makes for a perfect 'sample' bracelet :) Love all your stitches and the colours are up my alley (love that bold blue in contrast to the silver).

  12. What a clever idea to make a sampler. And I agree about the Zuni earrings. I made a sister a pair awhile back and every time she wears them, I want to make myself a pair!
