EYE GLASSES CHAIN 11/0 seed beads Miyuki "Matte Metallic Bronze" (2006) 8/0 seed beads Miyuki "Matte Metallic Bronze" (2006) (you will need 2) SuperDuo beads "Opaque Grey Picasso" (you will need 37) 3mm druks "Champagne" (you will need 152) When I saw Deborah Roberti's "Beaded Lanyard" pattern recently, I immediately thought that it would work great for a glasses chain with some modifications. First, I went to Walmart and bought the only glasses chain that they had in stock so that I could determine how long to make my chain. You can see the clunky tortoise shell chain in the photo belo ..read more

Video Tutorial - Honeycomb Earrings

HONEYCOMB EARRINGS These cute little earrings were made by following THIS JRPDesigns video by Jigisha Patel. They are called "Honeycomb Earrings". I made sample earrings in three colorways. The sample with the turquoise SuperDuos is the same combination of colors that she used in the video. For some reason, her Duracoat Champagne (4204) seed beads look silver but they are actually a pale copper color. For that reason, I used copper jump rings and earring wires with mine. Jigisha has the pattern for these earrings for sale HERE on Etsy. 11/0 seed beads Miyuki "Duracoat Galvanized Cha ..read more

I originally blogged about the "Galadriel Bracelet" above HERE in January of 2017 after receiving it as a Christmas gift from my friend, Teejay. In that post, I mentioned that I hadn't yet made a pattern for this design. I have since then typed up the instructions for making it but haven't made diagrams for the pattern yet. I've decided that I will go ahead and post the text instructions for download because I have no idea when I will get around to creating the diagrams. If I ever do make them, I will update this post. You'll find the link to download the free PDF down below. Although this ..read more

Beading Video - Russian Doll Earring Samples

When I saw these beautiful earrings on the Sonysree Creations YouTube channel, I had to give them a try. You can watch her video HERE. Although they are pretty, I have decided not to make the mates to these two sample earrings. I'm very fussy about neat netting and it's a struggle to keep this netting looking as orderly as I'd like. It may look fine in these photos, but that's because I manually arranged the netting as well as I could. I also had to use a little different method to make these because she leaves thread showing on the outside of a lot of the beads. Doing that isn't acceptabl ..read more

I have already published free patterns for "Blue Bell", "Clover" and "Ivy" and you can fi ..read more

I previously blogged about Deb Roberti's "Arabesco Earrings" HERE and HERE. Although I love all three of these colorways, they don't match any of my clothes so I will take them apart and use the beads to make something else.

Odds & Ends - Earrings #233 Samples

As you can see, I'm trying out a new photo background today. I had a small amount of money left on a Hobby Lobby gift card which was enough to buy a couple of sheets of scrapbook paper. This one caught my eye and I really like the colors on it. It obviously won't replace my standard background paper because it is a little bit dark and busy but I thought it was just the thing for these sample earrings. Below you can see them on my old background for comparison. The greenish beads in the center earring are a little washed out but the other colors came out quite true to life. I also think that ..read more

WINTER BLOSSOM EARRINGS 11/0 seed beads Miyuki "Dark Bronze" (457) 8/0 seed beads Miyuki "Dark Bronze" (457) 4mm druks "Goldenrod Picasso" SuperDuo beads "Yellow Dark Travertin" Now that life is pretty much back to normal since my husband's bicycle accident, I'd really like to get back to beading again. So, the other day I started sorting through some beading projects that I was planning to work on before all of my plans went out the window back in March. I found a few sample earrings I had made using various patterns that I probably won't make the mates to. I would like to recycle the ..read more
