I’ve continued (mostly) with beading weaving over the last week or so. As mentioned in my previous post I have made my snowflake necklace in 2 other colours. I made these a little simpler with only 3 rosettes to each necklace.
I also started a really basic necklace that just grew as I went along. It was supposed to be a basic string of pearls decorated with seed beads and gorgeous gold/copper firepolish beads. It became more of a statement piece.
I then decided that I would teach myself peyote stitch. I used a tutorial in the book ‘Beadweaving Beyond the Basics’ by Kassie Shaw. Its a lovely book and perfect for anyone, like me, who loves to flick through oohing and ahhing over pretty pictures. Here are the earrings inspired by the book.
I have a whole row of earrings waiting to be photographed and my Fimo has also been out so I have a whole load of beads and pendants ready for finishing. Here is a sneaky peek at some new Fimo Leaf Metal I have tried out.
Oh my, it’s just so pretty.
Thanks for stopping by.
