Okay, my mom turned me on to this idea (she did a class using these Japanese foam card things to make patterned weaves) and I then found a foam thingy in my daugher's friendship bracelet making kit. Isn't this a great texture and variations are of course infinite. I started this one AFTER the kids got in bed, and here I am blogging about it less than two hours later. I spent my day resting, napping, and knitting, and then went "BAH, BLOG" and started a finish-able craft for this entry. I used a link from the metal belt I broke apart. I haven't figured out the closure yet for a necklace, but I will get there. Probably sterling caps? I like the highly finished look over the shappy-chic ribbon ended thing. However, I just used some of the fiber that I have been adding to my pouches, and I am THRILLED with the end product! I suspect, I will end up calling up my good friend Amy (I actually have TWO good friends both named Amy who both sell Silpada jewelery) and find a larger, heavy sterling pendant that I can use with a variety of these woven necklaces. My mom is bringing up supplies on her spring break as well as she has made these covered with beads! Oooh, ahhh!
