Just got an email to advise me that my blog is now in the Top 50 Handmade Jewelery Blogs! How exciting ?
I've been working my way through Cath Thomas' and Gerlinde Lenz's Diamond Weave book and here is the bracelet and earrings set I've just completed! I'm truly enjoying this stitch and am about to start on the variations part of the book! See you later 😊
It took a while but finally my new Geometric necklace is finished! To soften the contrast I've used off white beads and mixed matte with silver lined Delicas. I'm happy with the closure but have to test it to see if it can actually support over 100gr of Delicas. Will keep you posted 😊 inspired by Kate McKinnon and Contemporary Geometric Beadwork
I was busy sorting out my beads and found the red bead mix which I've had for a number of years! I've tried using it in different projects but was never happy with results. This time I also found a lonesome tube of copper beads and I think that the bangle I've just finished has turned out very nicely. The band is in RAW and the wings are also uneven on each sides giving the bangle a really irregular look. Hope you like 😊
My new kaleidocycle bangle is all finished! And I managed to put it together in such a way that each turn changes from black to silver 😊 can't wait to wear it!
There was a postal delay but finally my package from Perlen Poesie has arrived and I can show off my certificates and prizes 😊 I was thrilled to have reached the nominations stage but am still blown away by my cuff "With a Twist" wining 1 of the 10 awards. Thank you again to all at Perlen Poesie, the judges, all the wonderful sponsors, fellow nominees and winners!
While nursing my cough I got bead for a bit and just finished my new bangle. It's spired by Debra Schwartz's original bangle and Contemporary Geometric Beadwork. Hope you like 😊
Here are some new photos of my cuff. I was beyond thrilled when it reached the nominations stage in Perlen Poesie International Bead Awards 2016 but I was completely blown away when I found out that it actually won 1 of the 10 prizes 😊 I would like to again thank all the judges and sponsors and congratulate fellow nominees and winners 😊
