The clock is ticking… Register for this Friday’s December 6th class with Cynthia Rutledge at Beads by Blanche in Bergenfield NJ. Call (201) 385-6225.
Learn to make Cynthia’s Jacobean Floral Bracelet which evokes the floral style of early Jacobean embroidery but with a 3-dimensional contemporary take on traditional techniques. A central thistle/artichoke component made of Peyote stitch; flat, flat circular and tubular ties a coiled tube of metal mesh together in the middle. Nestled into the coils, two other fanciful botanical shapes fill space as the mesh works its way to the closure. The closure encases the ends of the rolled mesh in a beautiful set of cones embellished with an exotic shape that hides a snap.
