Maggie Picot Flaps

Maggie Picot Flaps was inspired by, and named for, Maggie Jackson, the innovative Irish

knitwear designer extraordinaire. Blessed with the good fortune to be a participant in a weekend retreat where

Maggie was the guest instructor, I just had to translate what I learned with linen yarn into beads. The bracelet

is worked entirely in peyote stitch. Matte finish Delica beads are alternated with matte finish seed beads in the

same color to give the appearance and texture of knitted moss stitch. The ‘picot flaps’ are deftly worked into

the piece and use a 2.8 mm Japanese fringe bead to crown the picot flap. The bracelet has a soft supple drape

and much the same feel as a piece knitted with Irish linen.Project Information

Introducedto off-loom bead weaving in 1994 she immediately became intrigued with the endless possibilities offered by the vast variety of bead colors, shapes, sizes, and types and has since found her niche in designing with seed beads and off-loom bead weaving.
