Jewelled Bracelet - DMC
I don't, as a rule, like stitching with metallics, but this little kit was so attractive I couldn't resist when I saw it in my LNS sale. In "real life" the colours are a little brighter, and the stitches stand pretty proud - in fact, DBF initially though it was a beaded piece when he saw it lying on the PC desk.
It stitched up pretty quickly, and as for finishing - there wasn't any, as the fabric was pre-overlocked, and the bracelet clasp already attached! The threads were reasonably well behaved, although I had to knot them into the eye of the needle. I couldn't find my "Thread Heaven" but I really didn't need it.
