Mine came in today (perfect timing!).  Thanks so much Aster!  I especially like the fabric you used for the brat.  It looks awesome :)

 
I'm so glad it got there in time.  I hedged my bet, though.  The fabric and ribbon were both put out for Brighid's blessing last year.  ;)

Well, once my phone camera starts working again, I'll put it up. :p

Just hanging this here. Maybeimawitch sent me this beautiful cross. I LOVE it! I've been trying to figure out how to make it lol. Thank you so much Jake. It's going straight up on my living room wall when I bring it in tomorrow.


I hope this works ok - I can't preview the post with tapatalk. If it doesn't work I'll post tomorrow from my laptop.

Any more pics of swag? I'd love to see!


My camera on my phone sucks, so forgive the poor photo quality, but here's the pics of the awesome Brat and cross that Aster made.

Is it beaded wire?

yes, it is, I just followed a basic cross pattern but as I put each length on i slipped a bead on, then when all the pieces were in place I threaded beads along the arms and finished of by twisting wire round the ends. If i was doing it again i think I would use slightly thicker wire.

If you don't mind more questions:  What size wire and beads did you use and what size wire do you think would be better?  Did you use beading wire (which kind?) or some other kind of wire?  How flexible is the one you made?  How big is it?

I'd like to try making a beaded cross, in case you can't tell, and I think the one you made is really beautiful. No point reinventing the wheel, right?  ;-)

You're welcome :). Did it arrive in time for you to put it out? International shipping can be so hit and miss with the timings

sorry for the delay in responding, both myself and my computer have been sick

anyway, the wire was 0.40 mm and the beads were 8/0, the wire was just a bit too flimsy for me to work with comfortably. (but it did make it very flexible.)

i can't remember how big it is, maybe Roquelaire can measure it for you?

I'm more than happy to make one for you if you want?

Thanks for the info.  No worries about the size -- I was just curious.

I don't want you to go to any trouble.  That said, of course I'd love one!  :-D. But only if you happen to be sitting around with nothing better to do and beading crosses anyway.  I really don't want you to go through the hassle just for me.

(And, if you do find yourself making one for me, I'd definitely want to reimburse you for supplies and shipping.)

Either way, I appreciate the offer, as well as the idea and the info.  I don't know why it never occurred to me to try beading Brighid's crosses.
