Well, it is true. The stones made me do it. I was searching my bead cabinet for some misplaced seed beads, when I came across a bag of mixed odd stones. I had put it away not knowing what I would make of them. I can’t make a pair of earrings with one stone and, in the past, all my necklaces has been with many beads.
But now that I found it, I knew exactly what to do! Chain choker necklaces with single stones.
This is the result, five chain chokers with five different stones. From left to right: white howlite, purple amethyst. green moss agate, clear quartz and brown agate.
The seed beads I was looking for? Still have not found them.
I hope to have the chokers in my shop soon!
New statement bracelets
I had the idea to make statement bracelets by layering memory wire into a sort of cuff bracelet. And once I got going I almost couldn’t stop. This is how my first ones turned out.
Still stuck on layers as you can see! 🙂
These bracelets will be in my shop soon!
Stuck on layers
I finished the new necklaces that I told you about last week, and also made some others while I was at it. And all of them turned out layered. 🙂
Making more layered chokers
I enjoy beading, because it is like therapy. So at the moment I am making more layered chokers. The first one (purple) has five strands made and just need assembling. The second will be bronze and olive nuances. I just finished putting all the beads on the wire.
The earlier ones I made was only in a grey scale – black, white and grey.
I plan to do more of these beaded chokers, but when that will be only the future will tell. 🙂
Remember to check out my shop here, and also the shops on Etsy and DaWanda are full of my jewelry!
New earring design
I have often made necklaces with layers, but my earrings are usually simpler. I thought it was a good idea to make some earrings with layers too and came up with a new design.
Two chains with beads, and to start with made them in five colours. Which is your favourite?
I hope to have them available in my shop soon!
When I wrote my post about the bib necklaces that were a work in progress two months ago, I could never dream it would take me this long to finish them. But now finally I am ready to put them back in my Etsy shop!
What do you think? Any favourite? ♡
It was ages ago, but I really like those chain chokers I made with pearls last year. At that time I didn’t know it would take me this long to get back to that idea. But it is time.
So here is a sneak peak. I took out some of my favourite beads and started making them into chain chokers. All they need is a chain and clasp – and they are ready!
Keep an eye out in the shop, and I hope to get them up there soon!
Old idea got a new life
I have not made chokers for a long time. But thanks to a customer asking me about a different bead for one of my designs in the shop, I realised I could make more new choker necklaces by combining other beads.
I could not stop myself from buying a big bag of these beads when I found them in a shop. I thought they almost looked like stones. The ceramic beads have different shapes and sizes, and come in three colours – turquoise, blue and black.
On my table right now is a beading project. Last year I sold a few of my multi stranded bib necklaces made with small seed beads, and I have decided to remake a few. The one in the photo I have just started, but I have a turquoise half made one also, and a white one planned (but not started).
When finished, it is my idea that they will look like, or maybe more be similar too because they never turn out the same twice, as these earlier sold necklaces.
But it will probably be another week or two, before I get them all done. 😛
Meanwhile, available items can always be found in my shop, on Etsy and on DaWanda.
