New Bracelets!



These are 2 bracelets that I have finished over the weekend. I made them using viking knit! Portia showed me how to do viking knit while I was teaching in Chicago and have been hooked on it since!

Both of these bracelets are available in MY ETSY!
I have also added some more fire red and fire orange kryptonites as well.

Let me know what you think of them. I am working on some others that have my kryptonite beads in them....... I am just waiting to finish some pmc beads to go with them!

Everything just seems to look so right together . Truly stunning :o)

Hi Kathy! It is sooooo addictive. Why didn't you ever tell me about it! LOL

Annie you will be hooked and it isn't that hard at all...... find someone who teaches it!!

Hi Deb - Thank you so much for your kind words! They are so comfortable on your wrist too!

Where do I learn to do viking knit. Can I learn it from a book?
Have you used sterling wire? The bracelets are fabulous!

Hi Noel!
Thanks..... I believe there are books and directions online. Google viking knit! But I think it would be much easier for someone to teach you! I learned from Portia in Naperville. She owns The Gathering Place, here is her website

I know that she teaches classes in it as well... she is an awesome teacher. I use dead soft sterling silver wire!

Thanks again!
Andrea
