Here is a picture of the bracelet I made in the Russian Spiral class I attended yesterday at Market Beads. It was a lot of fun to learn a new stitch. Stacy Murphy, the owner of Market Beads is such a nice and friendly person, and a great teacher. I also got to try out some new threads, like the one I used for this bracelet: Fire Line Smoke 6 lb. I am such a fan of Nymo D thread that I never try new ones. But this worked out well once I conditioned it with some Beeswax. But I admit it took some getting used to. Stacy thinks it is a good one for this bracelet because it helps the spiral stay round instead of collapsing. Mine is a good sturdy tube.
Those lovely galvanized light raspberry beads are from her shop.(she has a super good variety of colors) The others I had, and are from ShipWreck Beads.
The other new thread that Stacy introduced me to is from Japan and called SoNo.( It is touted to be tenacious, strong - yet pliable, superior in fray resistance and workability.) I didn't try it yesterday but brought home a spool. Have any of you used it?
Got the clay as planned and some colored pencils for bisque as well. Once I try them out I will let you know how they work. Supposed to work well on Earthenware clay.
Sun again today. Hopefully I fit in some snowshoeing in the woods after I do my glazing. I hope you have sunshine today too.
