I've been trying to make beaded flowers to dress up my new beaded clutch (which is still under construction 😊). I fell in love with all the stunning triangle flower patterns that can be seen on Contemporary Geometric Beadwork blog. I wanted the petals to have a rounded edge and this is what I ended up with. Inspired by Contemporary Geometric Beadwork.
I've been busy with other "things" with not much time left to bead but also not much of an inspiration lately! So it's taking me a while but I'm have finally started on a beaded bag 😊 I'm planing to add some 3-D flowers to the front but I'll see when both sides are done 😊
After trying a few different clasps I decided on the open square within an open square. I like that the clasp also twists a bit to mimic the warped squares that my new necklace is made of. Anyway I hope that you like it 😊 inspired by Contemporary Geometric Beadwork with Kate Mckinnon
While thinking about a design for a new necklace, I've been playing with colours and patterns, From the samples I made a few new bangles in my favourite colours. There's a new one that I call a modern tribal and some Scottish tartan thrown in for a good measure, as well as two with a geometric pattern. Hope you like 😊
Just realised that I haven't posted any photos of my zigzag bracelet which is all finished. I considered a few different clasps but decided to extend it's length and attached 4 snap fasteners. This way the zigzag pattern is uninterrupted but you can still see the overlap. Anyway I love wearing it 😊
Ever since I saw Ina Hascher latest geometric rings which can be seen here http://knoopje-ina.blogspot.co.uk/2017/09/contemporary-geometric-beadwork-rings.html, I've been itching to make some of my own. And my inspiration came from my latest manicure. Hope you like and I'm off to make some more 😊 inspired by Contemporary Geometric Beadwork
It seems that I have been a fan of Twin Peaks for ever and am really enjoying season 3. The black and white floor and the red velvet curtains have always caused a shiver to run down my back but the floor pattern is so great that I just had to use it in a bracelet. Below is my new bracelet which I call "Homage to Twin Peaks". Hope you like and it will be for sale in both my online and Etsy shops.
I had to rework the deasign and found that it's best to create both earrings at the same time! Unless you take notes which I always forget to do while designing 😞 but at last my earrings are finished 😊
