Chubby Triangle Earrings

When I made last week’s Five Star Bracelet, I got the idea to make triangles. I beaded only three points of the star instead of six to get a triangle. By connecting four triangles, these chubby earrings came to life. There’s a big bead inside them to keep their shape.P1180587crop2

Squarest Bracelet

This week I wanted to bead something simple. I thought I would make a R(ight) A(ngle) W(eave) bracelet that would be finished in a day.

RAW is a simple technique and if you use a nylon fishing line the square shapes really work. But I don’t like the general feel of a bracelet when it’s made with nylon thread. It tends to feel stiff.

That’s why I prefer a softer beading thread like f.i. Fireline. The ‘Bead Feel’ is superb, almost like fabric.

It took me 3 days to design and finish this bracelet. The bits of RAW that haven’t got embellishment needed to be sewn through at least 3 times to keep their square shape. Oh well, learning all the time!

Jocelyn Earrings

Earrings to match the Jocelyn bracelet I posted 2 weeks ago. The pink glass farfalle (which means ‘butterfly’ in Italian) beads work their magic.

Jocelyn Bracelet

Bracelet in peyote and RAW (Right Angle Weave) with seed beads and farfalles.Jocelyn 2Living on a boat means you have different neighbors all the time. Whether you are at anchor or in a marina. A couple of weeks ago there was a family with a 10-year old girl on board the boat next to us. She sorted out my jewelry box and we had a great time together. I named this bracelet after her and she posed for me wearing it.Jocelyn 1 P1170760
