Ndebele Blue

It's been awhile since I have blogged, but you can be sure that I have been beading :)
My Nikon Cool Pics bit the proverbial dust, and so my son had to come to my rescue and be my photographer for the next few entries. Thanks, Zach !

I love Ndebele stitch, also known as Herringbone. It is an ancient African stitch that yields a beautiful slinky bead fabric. This bracelet was needle woven with blue hex beads and number 6 beads in a transparent lilac color. I sticthed a peyote loop and added a beautiful gold button with a floral motif. 
At 8 1/2 inches, this bracelet will fit the queen sized wrist and look spectacular !
