Dragonflies. Beaded beads and bracelets.

I know, I know, they don't really look like dragonflies. But if you take a look at the ornament made with SuperDuo beads, it does look like a row of tiny dragonflies... or is it just my crazy imagination? ;)

Anyway, a new beading pattern is ready and available in my Etsy and Craftsy stores, for both a beaded bead and a matching bracelet. They are made with CzechMate Tiles, SuperDuo and 11/o Toho beads. The pendant measures 2x2,5 cm (0,78x1"), and the bracelet is 2 cm (0,78") wide.

A bit time consuming, but still I have made more than one piece with each pattern. And I'm planning to make even more... ;)

For now though let me show you the set:

Yep, it looks like I have finally started making something more than just pendants... and there will be more bracelets appearing on here soon. So until the next time. :)

Reversible beaded bracelets

It has been a long while since the last entry... I neglected the blog a bit because of the damned treatment... I am sorry though that I have neglected your blogs too... but that will change once I regain my usual energy, I promise. :) Still I tried to do some beading during the last weeks - well, even a chemo can't stop me from doing that, after all. ;)

So, there are quite a few things that are currently waiting to be shown on here. I will start with the two oldest ones though, reversible, double-layered bracelets. They are different on both sides, so you actually have two bracelets in one.

They are made with 6mm, 4mm and 3mm round beads as well Toho seed beads size 11. They are 1,8cm (0,70") wide. And the pattern is available, as always, on Etsy and Craftsy.

 More bracelets... and pendants (of course!) soon. :)

Aztec Sun - another donut pendant and two new awards :)

After making a few patterns with spike beads, I had to get some rest from them. And as it's been some time now since I have made a donut pendant, I came up with an idea for another one. Again with SuperDuo beads, 'cause they are so nice to work with! That's how "Aztec Sun" has been made.

It is also made with 8/o, 11/o and 15/o Toho seed beads as well as glass pearls. It measures 4,5 cm (1,77") in diameter.

The pattern is available on Etsy and Craftsy.

And one more thing... I have got two very nice awards recently, which I would like to say a huge THANK YOU for. The first one came from bluefairy - Thank you Asia very, very much, I would never expect such a great award, and it really meant a lot to me. :)

The second one I got from . Again, didn't expect to be awarded... I can be only happy that you find the blog's content good enough.

I'm sending you lots of hugs, girls! :)

Also, I am very happy to see some new followers - I'm really glad you visit this blog. I hope you won't find it too boring though... at least not too soon. ;)

And one more thing for the end... Would you like a free pattern for a flower like in the picture below? Works perfectly as a pendant (of course!) or a brooch (tested too). It's been some time since I made a free tutorial and I thought that I could do that for this pattern... But it's only up to you, whether you would like to have it or not. ;)
