About the Kit...

I was at a point in time where I had to develop a new Petersburg Chain project for our classes.    The Traditional project, I felt, had been done to death, and while very appealing, it was no longer anything special.     The project had to be relatively simple, yet elegant and sophisticated, and truthfully, had to be more appealing than the traditional project design.     So, I used a more prominent bead to connect the two strips, then turned this project into a rope by connecting the sides together.   

 

I am very focused on redefining bead weaving stitches in architectural terms.   At the core, this means determining what about the stitch is supportive of “shape”, and what about the stitch is supportive of “movement, drape and flow.”   It became clear that every pair of Petersburg Chain Stitch rows is connected with what functions as a “box joint”.    Based on this understanding, I developed a simple Chain Stitch, also relying on the architectural properties of a “box joint”.    I used this simple Chain Stitch to connect the two sides of the bracelet into a rope.

 

 

 

In this PETERSBURG CHAIN ROPE BRACELET Project...

What You Will Learn:
- How to do the Petersburg Chain Stitch and a Simple Chain Stitch
- Understanding how a chain stitch architecturally can be seen as a series of connected “joints”, each “joint” structurally serving to maintain shape and allow movement
- How to create and attach a simple button clasp assembly

 

 

 

TimeFrame:
This bracelet takes about 6 hours to complete
