Like every year, I make a beaded Christmas ornament cover for a friend whose birthday it is in November. This is the 3rd year and I hope to continue this tradition as long as I live.
Tribal sort of necklace in which I used circular herringbone, circular peyote, square stitch and Right Angle Weave (RAW). The centre piece is hollow so it could contain a little personal item. I love that kind of thing.
This model I made before in blue. It’s my all time favourite so far and I wear it every day.
This one is more modest in colour and has lovely tigre eye beads in between.
P.S. Now available: Guadiana Bead Tutorial. See last week.
This beaded bead consists of 4mm bicones and some seed beads for embellishment. It has no core bead in it. It is very nice to string a couple of these beads onto a string or cord.
I made a tutorial for this design. If you are interested, let me know. In the ‘About SeaBeads’ section on top of the page just under the header there is a contact form you can use.
Although I said last week that I didn’t like making the same bracelet twice, I couldn’t resist making another one of my ‘Lacy’ model bracelets. But with the different colours and clasp it’s not comparable with the Lacy Gracey bracelet I posted two weeks ago.
Normally I don’t like making the same bracelet twice. Let alone four times! But in this case I had to make an exception. A dear friend of mine (the one that indirectly started my beading addiction) asked me to make them.
She needed orange items to wear for herself and her Dutch colleagues who were going to an international congress. The men wore orange ties and she wanted bracelets for the women.
I didn’t fancy her colourscheme at first but I must say I do like the end result. I would never use brown and black next to eachother but it works very well in this case. It looks like syrup or treacle, very tasty.
Bracelet in 2-drop peyote stitch with seedbeads and black crystals. By using seedbeads that are only coloured on the inside, you get this lacey effect.
