Perhaps it's because my knotting, knitting, and weaving skills suck that I'm so intrigued by the bountiful bracelets I've seen cropping up on sites like Janet Farris'. When I read "use a simple figure-8 finger-weaving technique…" it gives me hope. Could I possibly learn something new?
This technique makes very simple canes and beads look quite sumptuous. I'm jealous. The roses bracelet is by Cheryl Harris. Very springy!
Stephanie Serich’s “Spiny Knotted Bracelet” technique is very similar. http://www.sssbeads.com/bracelets.html She uses a very basic macrame stitch. It’s a really fun way to use lots of different types of beads.
Are the beads in the bracelets made from polymer clay? Whatever the materials used they are quite exquisite.
Just wanted to give a heads-up that the link to Janet Farris’ gallery has changed to:
