This is what I have on my worktable at the moment. It will become layered beaded chokers –eventually. Work on the necklaces is slow at the moment.
It seems that the more I have to do in my “non crafting life”, you know the kind that pays the bills, I turn to projects that are time consuming. Believe it or not, I have been working on these necklaces for a couple of weeks now.
I think it is the calm and peacefulness that beading brings me. It is like therapy. All I have to think about is which pattern I am creating, after that it is just placing one small bead after the other on the cord.
I hope to be able to show you how the necklaces turned out soon!
In the meantime why don’t you check out the shop here on tline.se or visit my shops on Etsy or DaWanda to see all available items!

I thought I would share a bit of my process when making a necklace. This is not a how to, or tutorial, just showing the work behind what may look like a simple chain necklace. So here we go.
I passed a craft supplies shop in the city the other day. I had no plans of making any purchase, but they just happened to have a sale on all jewelry supplies. So look what I just had to buy!
