Lyra's Jewels - made entirely in Hubble Stitch

Hubble Stitch is a prize-winner!

2015 is the 15th anniversary for the Beadworkers Guild and they were running a crystal anniversary competition, sponsored by Swarovski (of course) to mark the occasion. They announced the winners on the final day of the Great British Bead Show (Sunday 10th May) which is the lovely bazaar day after 3 days of beading workshops. What better endorsement for Hubble stitch on the day that I launch my book about it, than to win a prize for my Lyra’s Jewels necklace made entirely in Hubble stitch! I’m still on cloud 9 because I’ve never before entered a beadwork competition. The guild have kept it for photography, and I can’t wait to get it back because I absolutely love wearing it! They let me wear it briefly before I had to give it back!

Lyra’s Jewels is worked in Miyuki size 15 and Czech Charlotte size 15 seed beads, with 17 different special finish Swarovski Rivolis from E H Ashley and lovely little ss39 chatons from Stitchncraft.

      Hi, thanks for asking about Lyra’s Jewels. No I have only just completed this design and it’s quite a way from being a workshop and pattern because it’s made using advanced Hubble techniques. I will write it up eventually though.
