Beadwoven Bracelets

O.k. So I made it to day 2 of A to Z blogging. Well actually, it's 12:03 a.m. on the 3rd day as I sit here typing. I guess I'm a bit late, but what is time but a number, anyhow?  Today's letter is B, so I decided to do a show and tell with my latest beadwoven bracelets.

The first one is a peyote woven cuff. The pattern came from Fusion beads and is free on their website. I couldn't decide on what colors to do all the flowers, so I settled on a simple, sophisticated palette with just a pop of playful purple . I plan on doing another one over the summer based on all the wonderful colors that are bound to be growing all around me very soon.

The second bracelet is done in double St. Petersburg Stitch and makes good use of one of the many vintage buttons I purchased a few years ago at the Brimfield Antique Show. For those of you who follow my blog and were wondering which stitch I was learning a few posts back, it was indeed the St. Petersburg stitch. Remember I hinted that it was also the name of a place? 

So there you have it - a B post for day two of the blogging challenge and my beady show and tell all in one quick post. May I please go to bed now?

TTYL and make it a good day, or should I say a good night? ;)

Hi Debbie
I'm visiting from the A-Z Challenge.
Your beadwork is fabulous! I've also incorporated beads into my B-post, but in fiction form.
Enjoy the rest of the challenge!

These are gorgeous!!! I especially love the bottom one!

I don't know which I like better, in all honesty. They both appeal to me! The cuff is gorgeous and I'm not used to seeing that kind of bead work. I especially love the implication of the extension of the pattern, like it's just a swatch of something bigger(from the way the flowers aren't contained within.)

And the second bracelet is divine. Nothing else to be said, just gorgeous.
