Balalilac Necklace

Ballalilac Necklace SeaBeads P1200500It all started with the middle large pendant. Because I’m still really busy with the work on our boat, I wanted to buy a simple cork cord to hang it on but couldn’t get it in black. So I decided to bead a cord using herringbone stitch in size 15/0 because it had to be thin. I then added the two smaller elements to make the necklace a bit more substantial. So it ended up being a mega project after all.Ballalilac Necklace SeaBeads P1200479

Voltas Bracelet 2

Voltas Bracelet 2 SeaBeads Kralen.comBecause we’re working hard to get our boat Rita ready for the next season, I didn’t have time to design a new piece of jewelry. That’s why this week I dug up one I made before (see post 20-04-2015).

Off The Rocks

Off The Rocks 26-4-2012 P1060146I know, this has got nothing to do with beads. But I do like manipulating photos as well. Particularly if it has to do with rocks. This one turned out really well, at least, I like it a lot.

Maybe it’s nice to show you the original picture of the rock so you can see what I’ve done with it.Original small P1060146 -

Ice Cubes Bracelet

Slender bracelet (width 1 cm) with glass cubes and very rare copper colored beads. They were in an old necklace I took apart and I’ve never seen them before. They are not bugle beads, they’re shaped differently. Both ends are round. The advantage is that they are not sharp like bugle beads. They give the bracelet an antique look.Ice Cube Bracelet P1190914 - SeaBeads

For the first time I used wire protectors to attach the clasp and I think they are fantastic. I’m working hard to make my jewelry last as long as possible.
