I've been trying to do the second Kelp necklace in off loom weaving. I am having zero success. I'm looking for a swirling, organic design and the weaving is forcing it into a more geometric shape. Here is a picture of my latest attempt. It's just got too many straight looking lines in it.
However, all is not lost! I've been reading The Lone Beader's blog, and have become inspired by the idea of doing this in bead embroidery. I think I'll be able to get the more fluid lines to come out. Check out her wonderful embroideries!
So keep it tuned here for more kelp fun!
