Beading

Blue Square Bracelet

I purchased the most beautiful square glass beads with two holes and decided that I wanted to create a bracelet using them and some shiny 11/0 seed beads to dress it up.  So the first make was this one.....

It turned out fine but then I realized I started out with one and ended with two and I had one glass bead left.  I also decided I did not really like the matte finish on the seed beads.  So I cut it apart and redid it.  I do this alot, try stuff and then decide how I could do it different to make it better.  In the second edition I used some delica 8/0 seed beeds between the square beads instead of using the 15/0 seed beads.  I like the end product with the one bead instead of the smaller seed beads between the glass beads.  Thank you for looking.

CrisCross Bracelet

These two bracelets are made using the same pattern or directions.  These are also off of the youtubes.  Beadfulnights is the creator of the pattern used in these two bracelets.  These are made using #6/0 seed beads.  One is super shiny and the other is moderately shiny.  Thank you for looking.

Love Knot Bracelet

This is another bracelet from Potomac Beads using specialty beads.  The bracelet has arcos beads, round duos, bicones, silver 15/0 seed beads, and black 15/0 seed beads.  This one took a lot of starts and stops to get finished.  I wear this one alot.  I am not sure if I am up to making another one quite yet though.

I do not think that the pictures does this bracelet well because it looks much nicer in person.  Thank you for looking.

Round Duos Bracelet

I followed along on a youtube video from Potomac Bead Company to make this bracelet.  I used a pink luster round duo for the center line and a pastel pink for the outer line.  The seed beads are #11/0 and the closure is a cup button.  You use double needles and go down the center line first putting on the round duos and the seed beads, then you add the outside round duos and then you add the outside seed beads.  It takes a while to do but I really like this bracelet.

This one fits me just fine but I needed a little larger one for a gift so I made a pink and black one.  The pink luster is the same as the first bracelet and the black round duos are just a shiny black.  The round duos have two holes which make it easy to construct this bracelet.

Beading Bracelets

So beading has become my worktime passion....LOL!  I started stringing up jewelry and now have started beading with glass beads and seed beads.  It makes the afternoons pass more quickly and gives me some neat gifts.

This bracelet was copied from one I saw on the youtubes and this is the second one I tried using this pattern.  Neither one turned out well.  I decided to take a picture of this one before I cut it apart.  That is the good thing about beading, if you do not like it you can always cut it apart and put the beads back in their containers.  The only thing lost is your time and some thread. 

This pattern is using a single needle which makes the ends more difficult then using double needles on a project.  I guess because I started doing double needle projects that using a single needle makes things harder rather than simplier.  I used 4mm bicones and 11 seed beeds with a 6mm pearl for the closure.

Thank you for looking.
