I worked about four hours today to finish Alyesca’s Jewel designed by the very talented Cynthia Rutledge. I can’t say this was my favorite project to stitch but it is exquisite! Stitching the filigree to the bands and then the bands to the bangle was tough. There is no clear thread path and I broke a few needles and beads attaching everything. There is a hidden clasp that I love. Being partial to purple, I’m sure this will get worn frequently.
