Saturn: Jewel Of The Solar System

Still in “space mode” I made this necklace which depicts the orbit of Saturn. It is made with seed beads 11 and 15, tiny bugle beads and my favorite miracle beads that inspired me to make the necklace in the first place. These particular miracle beads are amazingly beautiful. They seem to lead a life of their own and glow and shine brilliantly.

Teal Victoria

Usually I like strong colors in my beadwork but this time I thought it would be nice to try a bracelet in one colorscheme. My dear friends bought me a whole lot of nice seed beads for my birthday so I have the same colors in different sizes in stock. Luxury!

I made this bracelet with size 11 and 15 seed beads, crystals and tiny pearls. It is 18 mm (0,7 inch) wide so quite delicate.


And I used my own Double Fibula Wire clasp to finish it off.

Beading in an environment like you can see in the picture below is most delightful. We are 20 NM up the river Guadiana which forms the south border between Portugal and Spain.

Bracelet in peyote stitch. I adore the blue color of the basic beads.

Most of the clasps you can buy I do not fancy but the ones in this bracelet I really like.

Comforting Beaded Cube

Many times I have written about the soothing feeling beads have. That is why I made this beaded cube some time ago using peyote stitch. Peyote is very suitable for making 3D items because the sides ‘zip up’ easily. I filled it with cotton wool so it is soft and squeezable. It is a nice item to fiddle about with. And the six sides provide a good way to experiment with color combinations.

As I am living on a boat, I am very close to nature. Water, wind, tides and last but not least, night skies. Especially in this time of year, the night skies are quite spectacular. It is not strange that they influence my jewelry.

I found some very shiny golden beads. When I opened the box it appeared to be so called ‘nugget’ beads which I had not anticipated. Their lovely glimmer is only imminent when you look at them sideways, so that is how I used them in this bracelet. In this way they look like bright stars in a moonless night.
