It’s time, you guys! It’s finally time for the reveal in my first ever blog hop!
You may remember a post from October where I announced my participation in this event.
(I also wrote about this really cool Wonder Woman bracelet I made, so go check it out and then hurry back here and finish this post!)
The point of this challenge was to use a graph or chart to make a stitched piece. I decided to do Peyote stitch AND to make the chart myself. This was the result!
I decided to make a city-scape! I used a variety of matte Delicass to make a sunset background and matte black Delicas for the building silhouettes. For the lights in the buildings, however, I used a silver-lined yellow Delica. The silver-lining really stands out among all the other matte beads, so they almost look like they’re really lit up!
I am really pleased with how this turned out. I used a gold-plated slide clasp, which keeps the cuff smooth and easy to wear. (I like wide clasps with wide bracelets.) I think the buildings turned out well too. I tried really hard to make them evenly spaced without being too symmetrical. Same thing with the building lights – it was really hard to make them look random, but still kinda even, (if that makes sense).
As far as the graph goes, I kinda failed to get my design in one place. I’ve got segments in a couple different spots on a couple different pages of graph paper. This happened partially because the graph paper wasn’t long enough for the whole design, but also because I get overly excited and disorganized when colored pencils are involved.
So, I wasn’t exactly organized, but I DID create my own peyote cuff chart and then I DID successfully create the bracelet. Therefore, I will call this a triumph and thank Therese Christine profusely for hosting this challenge!
Now, be sure to stop by everyone else’s blogs to see what they made!
