This was the very first technique I learned when I started beading 4 years ago. It is a North American Indian technique and very good for beginners.
I experimented with quite a few color combinations and made matching ankle chains. My beading addiction really took off after this.
Pair of matching earrings with last week’s necklace.
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.
Bracelet in RAW (Right Angle Weave) for a child.
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.
