Mix Herringbone, Peyote, Right Angle Weave and Square Stitch together in your beadwork, sometimes all within one row, and you’ll produce some stunning sculptural effects as well as have a lot of fun. It’s a bit like doodling three-dimensionally. I just love those “what if….” moments when I’m experimenting and mixing stitches and the Byzantine Cross incorporates all of this.
The Byzantine Cross is made from a few different components, worked together to produce a three-dimensional, reversible piece. If you want to challenge yourself and boost your beading techniques, this is it! Add a loop to the top sector of the cross, add a chain and make it into a fabulous pendant. But don’t stop there, the instructions extend to different bead sizes so you can make the cross in other colours and sizes – why not make three – size 8°, size 11° and size 15°, and wear them all at the same time on different length chains!
Tubular Peyote, Organised Freeform Peyote, Freeform Herringbone, RAW and Square stitch – it’s all in the pattern!
All patterns contain detailed step by step written instructions accompanied by helpful colour diagrams and images, a full list of materials and other requirements, plus comprehensive notes about the beadwork design.
