The first piece uses fabric from my stash and some metallic round cord in a flat braid. This flat braid is fast becoming a favorite, the channel down the center created by varying the cord sizes is a great place for beads or other shiny stuff. I like the rustic look of torn fabric strips, I think it goes well with the clay focal.
This is C-Lon cord and beads. The large wooden beads are worked into the "rungs" of a ladder braid, the excess cord is braided into a long fringed tail that can be worn in front or behind. Two strands, lavender and apricot, of size 6 seed beads and spiral knotted cord are woven thru the braid. The bail is folded micro macrame, another technique I've been playing with.
