Funny break between one project and another.
I've bought a little packet of O-beads, without any idea how to use them. Then the other day I came to this: a timeless pattern with only rings and chains.
OB = O-Bead 4mm
CWJ = Catherine Wheel Join
vsp = very small picot
Thread: I've used metallic gold DMC 282, that is like a size 70 thread.
If you are wondering where those beads come from, this is a link:
Load CTM 2 shuttles, beads aren't loaded on shuttles but joined with a normal upper join.
Start with a ring: 4ds, OB, 4ds, vsp, 4ds, OB, 4ds.
(*) Chain 12ds ; Ring: 4ds, normal join to previous bead, 4ds, vsp, 4ds, OB, 4ds.
Repeat from (*) for your desidered lenght.
Turning for the second part: Chain 12ds; CWJ to last bead; Ring with SH2: 10ds; CWJ to the same last bead;
Second side: (**) Chain 12ds ; lock join to the vsp of the ring below. Repeat for all the length.
The opposite end is the same as the turning side. Finish with a chain tied at the base of the very first ring.
This bracelet actually has already one matching earring, I'm doing the second and I'll show you soon.
