Well, I think I’m maybe done with the herringbone ropes for this project. I have, let’s see, more than 5 FEET of herringbone rope in the coil below. Oh, and for a break? I made myself a herringbone bracelet.
I’m waffling on how to put these ropes together, and I’m going to have to play with them to decide. Do I want a smooth group of them, all the same length? Maybe. Do I want a graduated drape? I don’t think so. Do I want them neatly braided? I don’t think so either. Tangled artfully? Maybe. (Anyone have instructions on ‘artfully tangling?!’ I know of this one, and I’ll try it.)
Current thinking has me stringing a strand of the bronze hexes, a strand of the bronze bugles, a strand of the 4mm orange squares, and a strand of the green sixes. The 8s would just be used to cap these ropes. This still leaves me the Swarovskis, the drops, and the cathedral beads. I may try for a pendant, or hang them off the clasp somehow. One step at a time….
