Making layered chokers

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!

Beads for chain chokers

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!

On my table

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.

 

Work in progress – chokers

Beading again

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!

Testing a new idea

I know I really can’t draw, but maybe you can guess by my sketch where this new idea is going. It’s my work in progress right now.

Chains will replace the areas where there are only lines, and all pearls will be on one side. More and more for each strand. If the finished version will be like the sketch, I have no idea. Still early days in this design.

I hope to show it to you soon!
