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.

Cute bag. I'm currently sewing a market bag and cutting sleeves off of old t-shirts and reconstructing them into sleeveless shirts or tank tops. I'll have to post about it.

Thanks Suze, I made a bag with the top part of the chino pants awhile back and used the legs for the lining for this one :) Look forward to seeing more of your creations.

Take care.

Oh a bag! :))) Love bags. And I need a scarf pin! Where did you get the finding for making a scarf pin? Is the raw finding called "scarf pin" over there?

K and S said...

Thank you Beadexplorer! I think they call it "scarf pin" here. I bought it online and it was listed under metal parts.

Take care.

I find that I have lots of beads and don't know what to do them. You have made some simple and great necklaces.

I'm trying to make a lariat, a necklace which is attached two fringed end in the centre. Suffering from artist block at the moment. Peyote is my favorite bead stitch by it takes ages.

K and S said...

Yes Chimerastone, peyote does take a while to do, I hope you get to finish all your projects.

Take care

Lovely work. I especially love the Marimekko print bag!

K and S said...

Thank you Melanie! I was in the Marimekko store and was appalled with the price of their bags. I remembered I had a Marimekko print and tried making my own bag :)

Take care.

Thanks for stopping by! You make such GORGEOUS things! :D I really need to get back into crafting. I can't remember the last time I made anything. Just worried about SO many things right now (dog, my medical stuff, my job stuff) just kind of put it off. Lately the only time I bust out da sewing machine is to fix something for my boss, or hem jeans, and I've gotten so chunky (OOPS) that I got tired of new jeans no longer fitting, so stopped buying jeans and only buy stretchy comfy mom pants now. BWAHAHAHAAA.
I did a little beading, nothing that looks like yours of course, knit and I think I forget how to crochet already LOL

K and S said...

Thanks Debi, I need to get back into crafts too, so many unfinished stuff lying around gather dust :( hopefully get up some energy to do some soon!

Take care.

That new jade, quartz necklace is gorgeous (and such a great way to use lots of different beads)!!

K and S said...

Thanks Jude, I really need to find more projects to use up what beads I have (and I have a LOT!)

Take care.
