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

The X-Bracelet III

For now, the last in the series jewelry with cross-stitch embellishments. It has a lot of open space. It was a joy to make this one. The main color is frosted bronze. This color was much less ‘bronzy’ than I expected it to be but the quality of the beads is very good so I used them anyway. I tried to enhance the ‘bronziness’ with the antique bronze highlights.

The X-Bracelet II

The X-Bracelet II SeaBeads Blog P1210175Still in cross stitch mode I made another bracelet. I really like the 3D effect it produces. If you’re wondering what the copper item is that I used to drape it on: it’s our fog horn.The X-Bracelet II Detail SeaBeads Blog P1210201
