Ribbed Bullet Lariat

Finally, my lariat is finished. I made a herringbone cord to hang the bullets from. At first I was afraid that it wouldn’t be supple enough but luckily that’s not the case.

Inbetweenies Bracelet

First I’d like to wish all visitors on this blog a Merry Christmas and a happy 2017!

The green oblong beads in this bracelet are made of shells and used to be strung together with elastic cord. Each shell bead has two holes. I spaced them up with peyote stitch squares and finished it with a lovely fold over clasp.

Ribbed Bullet Pendant Mark II

The second attempt of making a pendant for my new lariat turned out much better than the first.ribbed-bullet-pendant-mark-ii-seabeads-letters-p1210699It’s smaller and doesn’t need filling up to keep its shape. The only thing left to do is making another one exactly like it and a long beaded chain to hang them from.

Ribbed Bullet Pendant

ribbed-bullet-pendant-seabeads-p120290I’ve made three lariats before and I fancied making another one. The nice thing about lariats is that they don’t need a clasp. They consist of a long beaded chain that you knot around your neck. So now I’m looking for a new kind of pendant to hang on both ends of the chain. I already made one with lanterns, one with triangles and one with cones. This is the first attempt at a new shape but I’m not pleased with it yet because it’s too big and needed stuffing to keep it in shape.ribbed-bullet-pendant-seabeads-sideways-p1210335
