Above, bracelets without clasps.
I made this bracelet for my mother years ago. The plastic snaps have broken and the color on the leaves has faded off.
A pathetic snowflake and a herringbone experiment.
Thought I could make something out of this, but am now stuck on how to finish.
I don't believe this bracelet is supposed to twist and turn. In fact, it's supposed to lay nicely on your wrist with a bit of a curl, just a bit.
My tension is way off on the bracelet above. It's supposed to be flat and the herringbone is supposed to look braided. In fact, the thread snapped at one point.
This is supposed to be diagonal square stitch that automatically curls. Mine is straight as can be.
A peyote freeform idea for a bracelet. I just don't like it.
The title of my blog is "Bead Inspired," but lately I haven't had much inspiration. I've been working on a lot of various projects and am unhappy with most of them. Sometimes I have high expectations of how something will turn out, and I'm pretty disappointed when it doesn't. Depending on the project, I will pursue it further, or I may just throw it in one of my unfinished project bins.
One thing I am frustrated with this blog is that the pictures always are above my writing. I have no idea how to start writing above the pictures, even if I write first. So I always feel that I am going back in time, rather than moving forward.
With no further ado, I present a series of unfinished projects, above.
