October Component of the Month – Niky Sayers

This month, it was Niky’s turn to provide the Component of the Month – she sent us these awesome hare coin clasps! She makes such awesome things! And yes, as usual, I didn’t take a photo of it before I used it.  I do that, I admit it.

I wanted to learn a new stitch, and thought flat chenille stitch would go perfectly with the size of this clasp.  I chose size 11 and 15 Japanese seeds in coordinating colors, colors I thought would look good with the brushed silver of the coin.  And then I learned flat chenille stitch.

To be honest, I’m embarrassed at how long it took me to actually figure it out.  It’s a pretty easy stitch,but for some reason, I was having trouble initially in turning over to the next row.  Once I got it, it went really quickly and it’s a pretty fun stitch, with quick results!

 Here’s the whole bracelet, very easy to wear as well!

I have another clasp of Niky’s from last years’ CoM, and I already have beads picked out to turn it into a flat chenille stitch bracelet!

Thanks so much to Niky for the awesome clasp, and check out what everyone else made!

  1. Somehow when I think of this beading stitch I think of chokers as it reminds me of tiny little cross tucks or secured pleats that can be seen in ruffs of the late middle ages. It looks good as a bracelet too

  2. I really love the colours in contrast to the silver hare, it brings the eye to the clasp! And… I really don't have the patience for this kind of beadwork myself even though I love how it looks!

  3. I've never heard of chinile stitch before. Your bracelet is beautiful and it looks like it would feel slinky and nice on the skin. Great job!
