Therese Frank of Therese's Treasures and Christine Altmiller of One Kiss Creations recently started a challenge for both beginning and advanced beadweavers: create something using peyote or herringbone stitch or both. It sounds easy, but the possibilities with those two stitches are truly endless.
Herringbone is probably my favorite stitch. It's fun to weave and I love the look of it. I came upon this Three Strand Nebele Bracelet by Laura McCabe. I thought it was a perfect pattern for this challenge.
The middle rope is tubular herringbone. I used size 10 delicas and 3.4mm fringe beads.
The outer ropes are spiral herringbone.
The pagoda at each end is made with a combination of peyote and herringbone stitch. The bell cap is herringbone and is a perfect cover for the transition from three ropes to one.
Therese and Christine, thank you for hosting the challenge. These are two of my favorite stitches and I have been wanting to try this pattern for a while now. Thank you for the opportunity.
