Detail 379 August 16th, 2007

Half Chevron Stitch with Beads

This is a Half Chevron Stitch that I have dressed up with beads…I alternated the Bugle beads with the smaller star beads because the groups of 3 bugle beads are quite heavy and to put them in every space along the seam would have been to much, alternating with a smaller bead lightens their look it also creates a more shaply edge to the seam.

    I like this seam treatment so much Annie. There is such a nice rhythm in the repetitions. Also made me see the half chevron in a new light.

    I was playing around with a similar seam today, but I did a herringbone bottom on it, instead of the chevron. I really like your beads here. Those star beads are very unusual, but you were right about the balancing.
