Yes I'm still unpacking and I must say I'm getting pretty sick of it. I'm down to 10 boxes in the dining room, living room and office. Sounds great right, well then I still need to unpack my pressed glass at the bead warehouse. Then I need to unpack my glass studio which will take at least a week to do. :(
On a lighter note, I have tried to add a free pattern to the blog which I must say almost kicked my butt! I wish with all my heart that I was good with computer stuff but this is the best I could do. If you click on the pattern picture and then click on it again it gets larger and then click print and you should be able to print it out in a size that you can read. Let me know if this works for everyone. I will now try to add a picture of the bracelet I made with this pattern, hope it works.
I used delicas and three colors of purple (light, medium and dark) then I used the good gold of course for the background. The edging is 15/0 seed beads in 462D and 465.
Hope everyone enjoys this bracelet pattern it is one of my bargello patterns and I have made a lot of them up. I love the way bargello looks and the way the colors blend together. One of the colors of purple is a matte color because I like to put matte with shiny beads because it gives your piece depth.
Again please let me know if the printing out of the pattern works and by the way I did this piece in peyote stitch. I used snaps as the closure because it is easy to get on and off.
