What a relief! I finally touch base in Singapore after heavy traveling for two months (September and October). Oh, home sweet home!
I have promised myself to do a remake of the CHUNKY GREEN with some changes to make it more wearable. Tada....here is the new version with an orange bead:
The main difference is in the black weaved rope. I used Cubic Right-Angle Weave (six-bead base) instead of Twisted Herringbone Stitch. It is indeed more flexible - Thanks Therese for the suggestion!
It was taken on the same day of completion therefore I had no chance to snap some good shots with the camera. At least I managed to take this photo with my Samsung handphone before saying bye-bye to it.
Hmm...I wish I could have some close-up shots of the wire wrapped bead. Both sides are equally presentable with similar design. This is slightly difficult to wrap as the holes are at the sides widthwise, unlike the CHUNKY GREEN which has them at the top and bottom. The challenge was to make it stay put lengthwise and not easily go lopsided. Ha ha, at least there are holes otherwise it would be challenging.
Hey, the CHUNKY GREEN was also taken and the taker actually preferred it to the orange one. Well, I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
Next project - Viking Knit. Wish me luck!
