garnet chips

This is my first attempt to netting. When we were at the Cape with my friends, I had a chance to see one of the handmade bracelets at a local shop. I thought it's very beautiful and it inspired me to try to make it myself. Here's my take:

I made the base of the bracelet using netting stitch. I used 11/0 silver-lined amethyst glass beads. After making the base, I then stitched the garnet chips on top of it. The pictures below will show you how the finish product looks like. Hope you like it!
