keeping busy

Been keeping busy, doing some project here and there.

A skirt pin with czech beads, faux pearls and new jade.

Using tegusu like the stuff used for fishing, strung up some odds and ends to make a long necklace.

Using nylon cord wire, strung up new jade, orange avent, blue lace, rose quartz & aragonite with czech beads and faux pearls to make a necklace.

With the scraps from the legs of my chino pants, I combined them with this Marimekko print to make a reversible shoulder bag.

peyote stitch cell phone strap

It's been awhile since I've beaded. Made this cell phone strap today. Peyote stitch.

Took me awhile. The Nymo thread that I was using got tangled then it was a big knotted mess, so I needed to start over...sigh.

Glad this came out.

wavy necklace

It's been awhile since I've posted here.

I've since lost all energy to bead. Probably because I was fed up with the way my teacher was handling the classes. (Long story)

I finally finished the wavy necklace that I was assigned in June.

I'll post again when I finish other projects, hopefully it will be soon.

dutch spiral necklace

This is the dutch spiral necklace that I was working on.
I ended up taking a long time to finish it. I'm glad that one is over.

Now in class I'm doing this chevron stitch necklace. Hopefully I'll have some time to finish it before the next class.

working on...

Working on this dutch spiral necklace. The stitch is quite repetitive so it isn't very hard, just kind of monotonous.

I guess I'll work on this a little at a time. 1 section took an hour. :( 6 more to go!

Today was the first day of my bead stitch class. I made this right angle weave necklace.

The color is light purple, with pink and some light brown pearls.

It took about 3 hours to finish the whole project.
