Inspired by my favourite step motif, as applied in a beautiful blanket that always catches my eye at the Museum of Anthropology in Vancouver.
This piece is made with Japanese Delica beads, and utilizes the mighty square stitch, the sturdiest of the off-loom beadweaving stitches. Each bead is sewn in to the piece with two individual stitches, and each row is reinforced twice.
I've finished the edges with antique Russian hemp.
The piece is 2" in width, 3" in height, and hangs on a 30" sterling silver drawn rolo chain.
All clasps and findings are sterling silver.
Proudly made in Coast Salish territory in British Columbia.
