JEWELRY PROJECT AND CROSS STITCH CHART BY AGNES DELAGE-CALVET
Boho glam and cross stitch chic!
Make use of your needlework skills to enhance your range of fashion accessories. Easy to stitch on a band of Aida, and enriched with pearls and metallic highlights, this bracelet turns into a glamorous fashion accessory.
This project includes an extensive step by step-tutorial, with pictures for each stage, as well as a list of needlework andjewelry supplies (see list below) and the corresponding cross stitch chart. Instructions are easy to follow, even if you have never made jewelry, however, basic jewelry tools such a bead threader or flat nose pliers will be needed.
Creative Poppy tip: Use any color background fabric of your choice to match your favorite outfits. The colors will stand out whether stitched on raw linen, black or even very bright colored fabrics such as bright pink, bright turquoise or bright green. The Aida band can be easily substituted with a strip of fabric, with folded edges.
Cross stitching meets jewelry and fashion accessory making in this fun series of projects by French designer Agnès Delage-Calvet. They include headbands and various shapes of bracelets. Shown here is the Cuff Bracelet. Other projects are sold separately (see below).
