The chevron design has really come together and really looks great and I think will have a lot of visual impact. I wanted to use more of these round stones but the navettes really just worked a lot better in the space- so we started with the “button” and just moved outward.
You can see in the above picture and the one immediately blow this I used the navette to frame the shape and I took the beading above it, then filled in the negative space.
Here in the above and blow picture you can see I used thread as a guide line and then terminated the beading and sequins at the bottom of the stone- I think it made for a sharper point and cleaner line. Again then filling in the space.
You can see the soap line I used to keep the stones in line and about where they needed to be. Below the guide lines and soap are very evident. that was a life saving choice- kept me on track. You can also see the evolution of the softer point to the sharper longer chevrons. That was a happy accident- but man does it look fucking good. *fansself*
And we’ve essentially come to the end of the process here. I don’t know how much over lap I need so I’m ending my sequins and beads here and from here I’ll move on to the front panel of the belt.
Thanks for checking in folks- till next time fearless costumers!
