Pillows - beaded pendants :)

So, the holidays are over... no more sleeping until noon then, what a shame. ;( Two new beaded pendants - Pillows - can only remind me about that "lazy" (you already know that it was everything but lazy for me) time. One of them was actually made something like two months ago - now it got a companion. Both pendants are made with bicone beads, glass pearls, SuperDuos and Toho beads. They measure 3cm (1,18") /side length/ and are 1,5cm (0,59") thick.

The pattern for the pendant is ready and soon it will be available both on Craftsy and Etsy.

And I have to go back to the kitchen, or the dinner will be burnt. Oh how I love it.... *sigh*
See you later then. :)

EDIT /03.08.2013: Now the pattern has been finally published. You can get it here (Etsy) or here (Craftsy). :)

The "Ribbon" again - pattern for a matching beaded bead

After making the bracelet from yesterday's post, there was a time for a matching pendant (certainly!). Completely unlike me, I made it pretty fast, despite having a thousand of other things to do, so here you can see it:

It measures around 2,7cm (1,06") in diameter (without the bail). Made with 8mm glass pearls, SuperDuos and Toho seed beads (size 6, 8 and 11).

And this is how the entire set looks like:

The pattern for the pendant is available on Craftsy and Etsy.

And one more thing for the end - I know some of you are waiting for me to respond to your e-mails... I'll do that as soon as possible, I promise! Despite having vacation, the time is more than busy for me now... :/
Lots of hugs for you! :)

"Ribbon" - tutorial for a beaded bracelet

While I was away from the online world, somewhere between painting the walls, killing monsters in Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition, getting stabs in my stomach (stupid injections, you can't really call them any different way :/ ), crocheting a new necklace, going for 10 km long walks with the Red Beast and worrying about poor little sick Leon I managed to do some beading! I forced myself to do some work eventually and even prepared a tutorial...

So this is "Ribbon", because my crazy imagination sees ribbons in the embellishment:

It is made with 8mm glass pearls, SuperDuos and seed beads, size 11 and 8. Fast and easy to make, it is 2 cm (0,78") wide.

The tutorial is available here on Etsy and Craftsy.

Hopefully I'll find more time for beading soon. :)

Pastel rainbow necklace

Busy with crocheting some other necklace, but in the meantime you can see some other beaded crochet rope I have finished recently. This one soon will go to a friend of mine, so hopefully she will like it. It's a thick one, made with 20 beads per row, yet soft and flexible. Made entirely with Preciosa seed beads size 11 and accompanied by two round jasper stones. The total length of the necklace is 43 cm (17").

Oh, the pattern isn't mine, it was found somewhere in the internet. :)

And as today is the last day you can join my giveaway, tomorrow you can expect the results. So see you until then. :)

Back to beadweaving...

But only here, for the blog purposes. Just because there's a beaded pendant, made last month I think, that was waiting to be shown... In fact it was (and still is) waiting for a tutorial to be written... but it's far too hot here to work. So the tutorial will be prepared in the future, while the pendant can be shown even today. And since there's been nothing happening here recently (I'm so lazy, I know), I might as well do that. :)

The pendant is made with spikes, fire polished beads and Toho seed beads. It measures roughly 5 x 3,5 cm (1,96 x 1,37") without the bail.

Don't know about you, but to me it looks like a strange, multi-legged bug. ;D

I'm happy that so many of you want to participate in my blog candy. Well, there is already more than fifty people who joined the fun, so there will be more prizes for you to win. And there's still one week left, so if you haven't joined yet, better do that when you still have a chance. :)

And as it's finally not that hot here anymore, I'm going out to catch some fresh air. Have fun whatever you do and I'll see you later. :)

Copper and caffè latte

So here we have the third soutache pendant... It's actually a miracle that I have managed to finish it, since Leon, while running on the sofa, constantly kept stealing the cords. I've spent most of the time on fighting to get them back, so sewing the pendant has taken even more effort than last time. Good thing that neither Leon nor Strider were interested in the finished piece. They were too busy with biting the blanket. ;P

But enough about the rats, time to show the pendant, so here it is:

That will be a very short entry, looks like I have to go. Now. :/
Oh, but I'm happy to see that so many of you is interested in winning the tutorials! Anyway, I'll see you soon again. :)
