Silver Streaks Herringbone Cord

Suddenly felt like doing the Herringbone- or Ndebelestitch again and loving it. This stitch originated in South East Africa. This bracelet is made in its tubular form.

Fire Helix Bangle

Just felt like making another African Helix bracelet because I do not want to forget this beautiful ancient technique. And what a wonderful stitch it is!

Shapely Gloria

Bracelet with a combination of RAW (Right Angle Weave) and herringbone stitch. I had a small sample bag of orange aluminum beads. Those I used in this bracelet. Unfortunately I was ONE bead short. So I had to put another bead in. You don’t see it at first sight but it is there.

Oh well, in Persian rugs they used to make a mistake deliberately because nothing can be perfect, only God. So I will pretend I did put a wrong bead in on purpose.

Coral Necklace II

A few years ago I made a similar necklace, in coralling technique. But because they always turn out differently, I thought I could post another one.

The shells I found on the beach and as I always look for shells with holes in them already, I did not have to drill them. I would like to add that the beads are not real coral to avoid any misunderstanding.

Aura Redonda

I do not like sewing loose components together, so this bracelet is in one piece, so to speak, made with one thread. Which means that when you get to the second component, you have to start from the outside and work your way in to the centre bead. Quite a challenge and great when it actually works.
