Let's try making Circles

Here's some of the pictures I took of my newest project. These circles are made using the chevron chain method. The possibilities are endless... you can make 2 little circles and make them into earrings or you can make a bigger circle to make a pendant. Happy viewing!!

Russian chain stitch

I made one of these in black and pink color - combo and gave it to my friend. That was the first of the Russian chain stitch that I attempted to make. The following day, she called me for two custom orders! Apparently, her co - workers saw the handmade "bling" on her wrist and admired it. Here's the green colorway that her co - worker custom ordered.

bead mixes

I've got hooked in netting! I found tubes of 11/0 glass beads in my stash. I am more fascinated by the bead mixes that I accummulated so here they are - a band - ready to hug a wrist that's willing.

garnet chips

This is my first attempt to netting. When we were at the Cape with my friends, I had a chance to see one of the handmade bracelets at a local shop. I thought it's very beautiful and it inspired me to try to make it myself. Here's my take:

I made the base of the bracelet using netting stitch. I used 11/0 silver-lined amethyst glass beads. After making the base, I then stitched the garnet chips on top of it. The pictures below will show you how the finish product looks like. Hope you like it!

Sorry for the Inconvenience....

A very talented blog designer Karlota of my web blog design was gracious enough to offer to "overhaul" my old blog layout. I'd like to thank her for her patience, time, and talent. She is such adept in her field. You won't regret dealing with her in making your blog look sharp!

On that note, I am in the process of putting back the widgets and such from my old layout. She offered to do the rest for me but I'd like to somehow get my "hands dirty" on this layout beautification process.

Again, Thank you, Karlota!

pink and green

This is what I've done while talking to my df on the phone. A lovely pink and green bracelet! I am just so inspired by the colors of spring that it seems so inevitable not to make something "springy". This piece is made of sterling plated findings and czech glass beads in flower and tear drop shapes. tfr!

Peridot colored bracelet and earring set

This is a piece I made for my colleague. I used all sterling silver findings, hooks, and connectors. the green bead is very pretty - my picture does not do any justice to it. I also made a pair of earrings that go with the piece. tfr!

my new "jewelry case"

I made a roll-up case for my jewelry so it will be easier for me to bring my pieces to work. (my colleagues are very supportive of my business- I am grateful of that!) I made so many that they looked so disorganized in the old jewelry box. The old box was made from the box I bought at the thrift store. I believe it use to be a box for the utensils!

Now, I have a new jewelry case! I love that fact that I can just roll the jewelry in and toss it in my bag!

If you are curious as to how I made it, leave me a comment. Tfr!
