Lace Quarter-Glove

This will be my last post for the next couple of weeks as I am going on holiday with the family... somewhere with no internet access!

This is what I've been working on with the border from the previous post.  I have seen a couple of these "slave bracelets" on the net and fancied having a go at making my own.  I don't like the name "slave bracelet" though...  That's why I called it Quarter-Glove after having tried a few other terms:  hand embellishment, lacy hand adornment?  Any other suggestions?

I combined beading with lace-making in this one and made a beaded ring to hold the lace around the middle finger.  It closes with a button on the underside.

Just a bit of summer fun!

I wish you all a lovely Easter break - Feliz Pascua - Joyeuses Pâques!  

See you in a couple of weeks.

Best wishes,

  1. Just catching up on your blog, and I'm amazed how many posts I've missed in the past few days!

    You've really been busy - all projects are wonderful!

    As it's late at night here on the East Coast USA, you may not receive this comment in time before your trip, but I just want to wish you a wonderful vacation!
