ok... so here are a few herringbone pieces i've finished:

first, my fave... pattern my original work.
cuff bracelet with tulips, giant snap closure.


detail shot


spiky cuff bracelet in galvanized seeds and garnet and tortoise gold firepolish 3x5mm's modified from a B&B issue


yummy cherry chapstick holder... the beads that look pink are actually cherry lined crystal.


Green Man done in peyote stitch... now that i've finished I'm not really sure what i want to make him into... ideas?


The colors in this one didn't show up so well...
Celtic Spiral cuff done in grape lined crystal and galvanized amethyst just need to add a closure...

Wow, that is some really nice bead work! I really like the third one, the flower is simple but so cute.

As for Green Man, how big is he? if he isn't too large maybe make him into a pendant for a necklace or a centerpiece on a bracelet? Or perhaps a patch for a bag or something. You could always put him in a little frame and hang him or put him on a dresser. Smiley

Hey Fiber People: I am very interested in personal swaps for painted/dyed roving or top. I can swap supplies or crafted items. Let's talk!

Every body wants a rock to wind a piece of string around.

Beautiful work! I love your favorite, the cuff, so colorful and summery.  Smiley

For the "green man", how big is he? You could find an old glass bottle and stitch him around it (maybe having to add a few rows). Then if you wanted to decorate further you could do netting and fringe...lots of possibilities.

Thank you all!

i think he's too small for a framed piece ... too large for a pendant... he'd do nicely for the centerpiece on a cuff... except i'm kinda tired of making cuffs lol... patch on a bag is a great idea... hmmm maybe i'll have to crochet a bag...?

OMG, the greenman is amazing!
and i love that chappy cover, how totally inovative! how did you do that? must figure it out....

i just did a circle of ladder stitch and worked herringbone off of it's base... sketched out the pattern on graph paper first.

For the "green man", how big is he? You could find an old glass bottle and stitch him around it (maybe having to add a few rows). Then if you wanted to decorate further you could do netting and fringe...lots of possibilities.

oohhh i like that idea that would be a great way to show off the colors!
