St. Petersburg Stitch

This weekend I've been learning the St. Petersburg stitch that is featured in the June issue of Bead and Button magazine. I love this stitch. I'm really proud of the bracelet that I made this weekend. This has just whetted my appetite to make another one. I also want to try some earrings and a necklace at some point.

Since I'm still learning, I used 6/0 size seed beads and just a regular sewing needle to stitch the bracelet. I used a standard beading thread that I bought at Hobby Lobby. The thread is sort of stiff and it worked beautifully on this bracelet.

That is beautiful, Sharon! How long did it take you to do that?
