Beaded Christmas Ornament II 2014 For People With Little Space

This beaded ornament is meant to be a Christmas decoration but can be used as a pendant as well. The cab is transparent so that light can shine through. I love the little golden peanut beads in the outer ring. I used them in my Stargazer bracelet as well. They are stunning beads when you look at them from the side.

Herringbone Rods

Herringbone Rods SeaBeads

As I haven’t got a fixed address because I live on a boat, it’s sometimes difficult to get hold of beads and findings. In a town called Olhão on the south coast of Portugal, I found this craft shop (which has a small bead section) and its lovely owner. She gave me the long headpins which inspired me to make these earrings. Combined with a heavy attack of wanting to do Herringbone or Ndebele stitch.

Bonbicos Bracelet

Since I was given some good quality beads for my birthday I am hooked on quality beads. More expensive, of course, but so worth while. I found some Swarovski bicones in a little craft shop in Olhão. Truly beautiful, hence the name of this bracelet: good bicones.

Linea Recta Bracelets

Delicate bracelets made of small rectangles. I love 3D beading! They are only 0,5 cm (0,2 inches) wide. As usual, they are made with one thread. I do not like to sew loose components together although sometimes it cannot be avoided. I work with very long threads and I am very pleased when I do not have to add new thread in a piece.
