The Elephant Project Necklace

When I begin a new project, I just start playing with beads and cheap fishing line. I don’t want to spoil expensive Fireline on a try-out. Doodling about one day I suddenly had the shape of an elephant’s head. Then I used half a circle of metal wire to form the lower stiff part of the necklace. The upper half is just simply strung with beads and a toggle clasp.

Twisted Herringbone Bangle

This is the first time I tried this technique. I used size 11 seed beads but I think it works best with bigger beads to get a more substantial bracelet. But I still like this one because of the shiny faceted seed beads.

The X Bracelet III in Reds and Blues

I made this bracelet before in copper tones and blacks. I gave it away as a present and because it’s such a nice design to make, I did another one in reds and blues.

Lena Bracelet

Slender bracelet that can be worn on both sides. Free form focal bits connected with Right Angle Weave. The bracelet is in one piece so the different elements are not connected afterwards.
