Galaxy bead and company

I made this long necklace some time ago. It is a birthday gift, to my aunt. It is composed by a galaxy bead, a beaded bead I wanted to make some time ago (you can find it in the bead & button on february 2010) and two small 8mm beaded bead with seed and delica bead, which pattern was created by quienlodira, thank you! (link to the pattern)

This necklace is out of my general style, but my aunt like it! That is the important!

Mississippi bracelet

I have been making this delica beads bracelet this last week. It takes a lot of hours, and a lot of delica beads colours (I finished 4 colorus while I was doing it) but it worths, at least under my point of view. The models is from perlenmuster, you can find here the pattern, but you have to pay for it. It is a mix of peyote and herringbone, with a very interesting effect.

I hope you like it!

About my work, herringbone


Today I want to explain you a little bit about herringbone, a very common technique in the beaded jewelry. It is difficult to me to explain it with words, the better way to see it is with one picture:

This bracelet was made with the most basic herringbone. In this link you can see how to do it, and understand it

But this is not the only way you can use the herringbone, some examples of herringbone used with other techniques are:                                      



  




 The brown part of the squared bracelet is made with herrigbone, as well as the main part of the flower's body. Here the link with the pattern of the squares bracelet. As you can see, this technique has wide possibilities, and if you look for it on the internet, you can find even more.
