Playing with St. Petersburg Chain Jewelry Ideas


I'm giving a lexture and workshop with the Weavers Guild of Kalamazoo coming up in April and May (I'm the April Meeting Speaker on 4/13/2020 and the Workshop is on 5/02/2020).  Since the workshop is on the St. Petersburg Chain Stitch I'm working on my talk circling around how I use that stitch.  


This always pushes me to think about how else could I use this stitch?  So this is a new little set I came up with thinking about that.  The earrings are 3 rows of St. Petersburg Chain stitch, the bracelet is one row on each side of my netting sittch. 


The beads aren't suite lining up how I want them to between the St. Petersburg Chain and the Netting so I'm going to give it another try soon.  I do like that the pearl and loop closure can hook anywhere along this bracelet to get the correct size if it needs to go smaller.


I used the below blue beads for some of the accents in the above pieces.  I'm so enamored with this color that I made a small pair of leaf earrings in them.  They include some glass beads that I picked up on our trip to Wisconsin last summer.


I apologize for the poor photos, I was trying to get them quick and the sun was too bright, plus I didn't take the extra time to clean all the cat hair off of all my display things so they seem a bit extra fuzzy.
