A Time to Stitch 4

Well it is time to play with the "flying missiles" again  Therese and Christine gave us our stitching orders and off we went.   I chose to make a spiral necklace from this pattern  I told myself I had to use beads that I had on hand.....so I played with several colors and finally chose this combination.  The size 8 's were from a store in St Louis and the others bead mixes from Fusion Beads.  This was an easy pattern to follow and I enjoyed making it.  It is a simple necklace I know but I learned a new stitch!




The netted stitch was next on my list.....I spent several hours looking and really couldn't come up with something I really wanted to do.....while searching I came across this pattern   I decided to try it.....again I had to use beads I had.  I made the blue one first to try the pattern....a pretty simple straight forward pattern...



Then I decided that I could make one of these to go with my spiral necklace so I made the black one....here is the problem.....the size 8's aren't black....they have a lot of green tint to them and the bead just didn't look that good on the necklace......so I am working on another project and will see if that pendant will work with the necklace.




Thanks to Therese and Christine for challenging me to learn new stitches!  Please click here to see the list of all the participants and see what wonderful jewelry they have designed.

  1. A delicious necklace! To me the bead looks great next to the rope, but of course I can't see the colours perfectly through the screen.

  2. I love spiral stitch and I'm so glad you tried it. Your necklace is fantastic. I love how you used different colors around the (not quite) black size 8 beads. The pops of yellow here and there are brilliant.

    The netted pendants are gorgeous as well. As usually, your colors are beautiful.

  5. Kim, your color choices always make your pieces look like they have a deep story to tell. There is something about how you pick and choose...keep doing it :-) Your necklace is gorgeous! And the netting pendant is so darling! The link brings me back to the spiral pattern...can you send a link when you have time? Really really nice pieces, Kim. Thanks so much for playing with those missals~you really have a knack.

  6. Love your spiral necklace. I think those colors are scrumptious and take it way past being simple. It's like blackberries - you know how you get a little red sour bud amongst the black?

  7. Hi Kim,
    Thank you for participation in this round of ATTS I love seeing how much you are progressing with your bead weaving skills and it makes me happy to know that Christine and I had a hand in your advancement. I love the spiral rope necklace it is beautiful and the netted pendant is just as beautiful and looks so nice hanging from the spiral rope.
    I hope you will join us in ATTS5.

  11. Kim, both pieces are gorgeous. I love spiral rope- it looks beautiful and it's easy to make if you're beginner like me. Thank you for included the link to the netted bead because now that I've seen yours I'll have to try it too.

  12. Love both your pieces - and I love you made a bead using the netting stitch, lovely. If you want to match it to the rope, why not try to use the 8's from the rope just as the accent beads on the net (the middle bead you go through back and forth)? That might solve your colour-matching issue and save you from stitching yet another rope :)

  14. Kim, your pieces summed up in one word...yummy! The colors you picked are delectable. The beads/pendants are the crown on such an awesome rope! I was late posting my pieces, perhaps you can find time to check them out. Thank you...

  19. Oh Kim.....I love how you say "easy pattern"......my jaw just drops trying to even think how "EASY" can even begin to describe your wonderful work. "Talented", yes that is the only word fitting!
