Diamondweave

2:40 PM Edit This 3 Comments »

Today I'm going to talk about the weave I invented - that's right, I came up with this beauty on my own! Someone else may have done something similar, but I didn't follow any pattern.

As you can see from the title, I call this weave Diamondweave. It looks like jewels to me.

It started out as me experimenting. I was making some orbitals, using rubber rings. It looked a bit boring to me, not to mention the rings kept wiggling out of place. I hate unstable weaves. So I added the rings that are gold in this bracelet. It was still a bit unstable, so I added the orange rings.

It was a lot easier to come up with a weave than I thought it would be. I imagine the principal applies to most craft mediums - just experiment! Start with something simple, and just add to it. I'm very happy with the way the weave came out. And I love this picture - I have a thing for roses.

In bloggier news, I'll be cutting down a bit. New posts on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.
