Sometimes inspiration comes as a surprise. This time it was a question from a customer, about a special pair of earrings. And it triggered my creativity.
I am still working on one of the necklaces I was going to show you, so this will be just a sneak peak of what’s coming.
I am making long chain necklaces at the moment. Two with stones (hematite and agate) and one with white pearls. All combined with small chains.
I hope to be able to show them in full soon!
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!
I have not one, but two pretty big beading projects going at once. These will be a work in progress for a while, since the beading alone usually takes a few hours per necklace. Continue reading
I don’t always consciously decide what I am going to make. Sometimes the creativity just flows. But this week I took a look at the beads I had bought, and started a project that will be a work in progress the whole week. Continue reading
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!
