Beaded cross and some earrings...

Yep, finally have made some earrings! I wouldn't have been myself though if I hadn't made some pendants too though. So in this entry you can see them both. Starting with the pendant anyway. ;)

The pendant is made from 6mm fire polished beads, 4mm bicones, 2mm metal balls and size 11 seed beads. It is double sided  and it measures 4,5 cm (1,57") without the bail. Not a typical pattern for me though since its shape more or less resembles a cross, but a very nice pendant to wear anyway. ;)

So the earrings I have made, at least one pair of them, is supposed to suit the pendant. It does, but only considering the colors, since they're made from exactly the same beads, but not when it comes to the shape. Oh well, I wouldn't wear both of them at the same time anyway. ;P The earrings measure 22mm (0.78") in diameter.

And finally the second pair of earrings, quite tiny ones, since they measure only 18mm (0,70"), which match the pendant from here. Made, as the earrings from above, from 6mm and 4mm fire polished beads and some metal 2mm balls. These ones, in opposition to the first pair, look quite well while wearing with the pendant. That can make me wear them more often then. ;)

And in the next entry - back to bead crocheting. ;)

Beaded spheres

As I promised in the last entry, two beaded spheres, pendants of course (can it be any different? ;) ). The first one is made from 4mm wax pearls, 3mm fire polished beads in two colours, Toho round seed beads size 11 and 15 and it measures 2,5 cm (1") in diameter. The other one consists of 4mm pearls, 3mm metal balls, Czech seed beads size 10, Toho beads size 11 and 15, as well as 3 mm magatama beads. It is slightly bigger than the first one and measures 3cm (1,18") in diameter. Both spheres are empty inside, so they are very light. There's nothing more to write, time to show them then. ;)

The first one:

And the second one:

Now I think I should make some more earrings, since there are quite a few pendants that have been made as of late. So see you some other day with some earrings hopefully. ;)

Two pendants in one ;)

True, two pendants in one. Just because it is double sided and these sides differ a bit from each other. Sure, it is exactly the same pattern on both sides, only the colours of the beads are different, still it works fine as two pendants. It is made from 6mm crackle round beads, 4mm pearls, Czech seed beads and Toho seed beads. It measures 4,5 cm (1,57") in diameter without the bail. And it looks like a flower to me. ;)

So, this is one of the sides:

And this is the other one:

Also, there's one beaded crochet bracelet that has been made and photographed long time ago, but not shown on here yet. Nothing special really, a simple one, but I thought I needed something green for this post too, to fit the flowers. ;)

Next time there will be some beaded spheres to see. So until then. :)

Roses are red...

They can be pink too, they can even be a beading pattern it looks like. ;)

So here's a beaded crochet rope, a thick one, 25 beads per row, with a rose pattern, and more than 6000 beads in total... You can see a necklace here, but there's a bracelet made with this pattern too... only somehow I can't force myself to make a clasp for it. ;P Hopefully I can make it soon. ;)

The pattern for this necklace has been created by myself. So you are free to use it if you want. If you click on the picture below, you can download a dbb file with this pattern. The image file of the pattern is available here. So, enjoy. :)

Last time I promised some tatting too... So there's a tatting collar, a simple one, made from Anchor Arista thread, color #316. Something for the New Year's Eve, thanks to the glitter I think. ;)

And the last for today, a necklace that has been made some time ago, only I haven't shown it on here until now. Inspired by one or Weraph's lariat necklaces. I haven't copied her work though as I have used some different colours of the beads (except of the silver lined teal beads, that she has used for her project too) and added a clasp. Still her work was a great inspiration to me. I only hate the picture, it should have been better really! Oh well, despite that, still I can show it to you. ;)
Lots of work, since the necklace is 120cm (47") long, and I have worn it maybe two or three times... what a waste! ;)
Anyway, see you soon again. :)

A simple beaded pendant...

Very simple, double-sided beaded pendant made from fire polished beads (6mm and 4mm), that is 4cm (1,57") wide in diameter. Despite being double sided it is also quite flat - only 1,3cm (0,39"). Not a very complicated pattern though, yet it doesn't look bad hanging on a long chain... One of my favourite ones to wear recently - at least until I make another one that I'll like better I suppose. ;)

Also, have made a few simple beaded balls recently that work as earrings for me now. A whole bunch of them really, so colorful that they look like candy. Yummy! ;)

Next time there will be some more crocheting... and tatting. So don't forget to check the blog again soon! ;)

It's all about Preciosa!

Yep, because those huge rivoli crystals are so beautiful! I can never have enough of them to bezel really. So there are two more of them that have been bezelled recently - something white, and something black, and I can't decide which one I like better. ;)

So, here's the white one, vitrail medium crystal:

And the black one, sahara crystal:

Both pendants measure around 5cm (1,97") in diameter. The bezels are made with Toho beads (size 11 and 15) as well as Preciosa bugle beads.

Just another donut pendant... and a little thief ;)

It's been a long time since the last entry... Well the illness doesn't really help me in updating this blog more often, it doesn't mean though that I don't do any beading at all. In fact I do lots of beading, since it is more or less the only thing that helps me to relax and doesn't make me too tired either... So, there's a few new things for you to see. :)

As the title says, another beaded donut has been made recently. In fact it is more or less exactly the same pattern as the one from here, only with some different beads - oval spectra beads 11x8 mm, and some different embellishment too. And they do make quite a difference, don't you think? ;)

The other side of this pendant looks almost the same. But only almost. ;)

The pendant measures 4,5 cm (1,57") in diameter.

And since I got to like those beads quite much, I have used them for some other project too. A simple necklace with a core beaded bead, that can be slided up and down on the ropes, so it can be worn in a few different ways. It has been quite a challenge though to take a picture of it... It's all because a certain black devil has appeared out of nowhere...

...and decided to steal it for herself. ;)

The devil was generous enough though to allow me to take some more pictures before she had taken the necklace with her. Thank you, devil, for being so kind! ;)

So, this is how the necklace can be worn:

And the core bead (3,3cm long and 2,5cm wide) looks like this:

And soon there will be another blog entry with some new beadwork for you to see. :)
