Purple Flower - Finally finished!!! :-)

I started this piece in around April , and although the actual flower was finished and the necklace part started, I just could not get my head around finishing it. I seriously had a mental block against beading the band in herringbone stitch, but finally this week-end I literally hid in my bedroom and put my mind to finishing it... and am so glad I did!!! finally!!!! :-) I am terrible.... I get bored so easily!!! so the prospect of beading not one but 2 plain long bands was just more than I could take! :-) but once I put my mind to it, I really got into it, of course I was in front of the telly catching up with all the programs I missed during the week... and the next thing I know.... it's actually finally finished!!! :-) I have to say.... this piece looks so amazing on!!! I must find a model for it.... my 6' something houseguest is a bit too hairy to carry it off :-) + am not sure he would do it anyway ;-) but in the meantime.... here it is!!!!

Today I'm teaching, and tomorrow is my son's 4th birthday, so I'm not sure when I'll be able to add this piece to my etsy shop.... but soon :-) In the meantime.... let me know what you think :-)

Happy beading everyone! :-)

  1. Triz - this is amazing!! Your herringbone band is the perfect finishing touch.

    I get bored easily too, so I have a dozen or so unfinished projects lying about.

    Happy Birthday to your son! *<:o)

  6. Beautiful as always. I tried to do herringbone but failed. It shows how in my book but I can't understand it. I have been looking for a video on Youtube. You would have laughed if you'd been watching my attempts! I am going to keep at, I am determined to master this. Happy Birthday to your son :)
