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!
