2017 Thursday Bead Post #42: Hubble

This is my last post about a stitch this year! It is time to Hubble! Not too long ago bead artist Melanie de Miguel invented a new beading stitch! She now has a couple of books on the stitch that are available for purchase on Amazon. This week I played with Hubble, making a small piece of tubular Hubble, and a bracelet made from some frosted silverlined 8's.

Interweave has an article on Hubble that shows the basic threadpath.

I learned how to do Hubble stitch in Beadwork, October/November 2015.

(FYI this is a good magazine to have, in addition to Hubble- it has a Lisa Kan bangle, a beaded bead by Cindy Holsclaw, a pair of earrings by Marcia DeCoster and an excert of one of Kassie Shaw's books!)

Minus the cat the magazine looks like this:

Next week I will be posting for the last time this year! I have made "plans" for next year. Check in next week for the details! I hope everyone has a great holiday weekend, no matter what or if you celebrate!
