Guadiana Set

Some time ago I posted my Guadiana Bead (see post Guadiana Bead 2013-11-10). This week I felt like making another one of these and a matching ring and bracelet.

The bead needs a black leather cord although I prefer a wiry contraption that keeps a round shape. Matter of taste.

Zigzag Bracelet

When I started beading, I used the internet to learn all the different stitches. One of the tutorials I found was this zigzag stitch by J. Cobear (2002). It is a netting stitch and such a clever design. I love it!

And so did a friend of mine. I gave her the bracelet and she wears it day and night. She never takes it off even if she goes swimming in the sea. It lasted for four years and then it gave up a couple of weeks ago.

She really missed it so I made her a new one. Nice to see that my beading skills improved over the years. Then it took me a whole day to make it and now I did it in 1,5 hours.

Half Moon Circle

This netted necklace was inspired by a bracelet I found in a container with discounted jewelry. The bracelet consisted of about 30 mother of pearl half round disks. Each disk has two holes and they were strung together with elastic. I thought they might look nice when they hung of an Egyptian type collar. And they do.

Wishing For Summer Bracelet And Ankle Chain

The ankle chain in the picture is my favorite piece of jewelry and I wear it day and night. I thought it would be nice to have a matching bracelet so I made one. It is very light. I love that because I do not like to feel the jewelry I am wearing.

Ottobolitas Set

Here is the bracelet that matches one pair of the earrings of last week. Both the bracelet and the earrings can be worn on both sides. Personally I prefer the side with the terra cotta embellishment because it gives the bracelet something extra.

The other side is a bit more modest.

Ottobolitas Earrings

Ottobolitas Earrings SeaBeadsEarrings with seed beads, tiger beads and peanut beads. I bought the peanut beads by accident and at first did’nt have a clue what to do with them. After using them for a couple of times, I really started loving them.

Arches Bracelet With Matching Ring

Seldom I use patterns of other beaders but I had to make an exception in this case for the ring. I found a picture of it on the internet. I have no idea who designed it. I searched and searched but the only thing I could find about it is that it is probably a Russian design (Biserok.info). 

The bracelet is four rows of St. Petersburg stitch.
