NEW BEADING TUTORIAL - Flowers and Drops

Hi all!

My playing with 2-hole cabochon beads and two-hole Kheops par Puca beads continues!!!

I present you my new tutorial - the beadwoven bracelet "Flowers and Drops". I chose a very colorful, juicy and summerly cholor scheme for this beading project which I like very much: gold, purple, olive green and mint green.

For this bead pattern I used:

6mm 2-hole cabochon beads, 
6mm two-hole Kheops par Puca beads,
4mm fire polished beads,
and seed beads size 11/0.

The TUTORIAL is available in my ETSY shop or CRAFTSY shop.
Enjoy beading and have a wonderful week!

Flower Power bangle in a new colorway

Hello everyone! 

When I started making this beadwoven bangle I had very few copper 11/0 seed beads (actually dark bronze, but I like to call this color copper because that's what is looks to me :)). But I had already chosen the colors I wanted to use for this project and didn't want to make any other modifications to it. However, I wasn't sure if that quantity of seed beads I had was going to be enough to make the entire bracelet. 

I started beading and I was hoping and hoping and hoping ...  and only a few cm before the end I ran out of copper seed beads, I was almost there ... I had everything I needed to finish the beaded bangle except for the little copper seed beads! There was no other choice but to put put this beading project aside until I would make an order for the materials I needed. 

But then I thought what if I would just add a magnetic clasp? That's what I did and there it is - my finished "Flower Power" bangle in a new colorway!

The colors I used are: 

dark bronze 11/0 Japanese seed beads (Toho 222)
rainbow light topaz/sea foam lined 11/0 Japanese seed beads (Toho 952)
aqua travertine two-hole Czech Superduo beads

There's a BEADING TUTORIAL available for this bangle in my ETSY shop or CRAFTSY shop.

Have a great week and enjoy beading!

Harmony - beading tutorial

Hi all!

I finished a new beadwoven bracelet and wrote a tutorial for it. Let me present you my newest beading design - a bright beaded bracelet in purple, bordeaux and gold - "Harmony".

For this beaded bracelet I used 2-hole cabochon beads, two-hole MiniDuo beads, seed beads size 11/0 and 15/0. This beading project is for an advanced beginner to intermediate beader, not very complicated to work but requires basic knowledge of beadwork techniques and some skill.

Here is a close-up of the bracelet.

You cand find the "Harmony" tutorial in my ETSY shop of CRAFTSY shop.

Enjoy beading and have a wonderful day and weekend ahead!

New beading tutorial - Pyramid

I close my eyes and I see myself on the top of the highest pyramid of Egypt where I can almost reach with hands the deep blue skyes of the pharaoes. This is where the inspiration for this bracelet design came from, from this imagined beautiful picture of the greateness of human and nature creation. Now, I can always have it with me on my wrist! 
New beading tutorial - "Pyramid".
