So let's get to the challenge at hand, which is the fifth installment of Therese and Christine's A Time To Stitch challenge! This round was a little different, and the directive was to pick one stitch, and do it three times in a different size, shape and/or color bead.
What a wonderful study in design!!! I picked my go-to stitch, peyote. And one of my go-to designs of peyote stitch with picot edging. I tend to always do this design with delicas, since they sit so wonderfully next to each other. But jeesh - when you try other sizes and shapes - all sorts of wonderful things happen!!
I have one here with delicas and the picot edging is done with 13/0 size beads. For the purple, I used 8/0 matte purple beads with matte a/b finish, and 11/0 seed beads for the picot edge. And the blue bracelet is done with 10/0 triangle beads. Look at how wavy it is!
I had a ton of fun with this challenge and I think it's a wonderful study in the role of size, finish, shape, and color when working a technique! Please visit the other participants in this round of A Time To Stitch! Thanks to Therese and Christine for a fun and useful challenge!
