New Creations

I haven’t blogged since January, but I have been doing a little bit of beading in amongst the chaos of my life.  Starting with a beautiful Heliotrope rivoli, bezelled with gold and peacock seed beads and Swarovski bicones. I stitched a delicate chain of gold seed beads in Right Angle Weave, double-woven for a more uniform look, to create a gorgeous necklace.

Later I used the same design to create my Nymph earrings, which are now available as a tutorial through my Etsy store.

Next up I made a hair pin as a gift for a friend. I based the design on an oriental lily, in cream and gold, with ruffled edges. For the centre, I used a filigree bead cap, splayed open with a pearl.

I have lots of ideas floating around in my head, but I need more hours in the day to make them manifest. Stay tuned.
