French Beaded Flowers

Posted in Uncategorized on November 6, 2011 by lizcreates

The Seedbeaders group which meets monthly has a different lesson/ demonstration each time, done by one of the members.  This month it was my turn, and I chose to teach French Beaded Flowers.

 

It took me quite a while to get the hang of making pointed petals.

Halloween necklace

Posted in Uncategorized on November 6, 2011 by lizcreates

I made this set for Halloween. The beads are Czech fire-polished, and I have some left over that I’ll use in something else, perhaps with some clear crystal.  Since I made this for myself, I didn’t bother with fancy beads at the back of the neck.

Halloween earrings

These earrings are made from a seasonal confetti in cat form.  In the several years since, I have been unable to find any more of these cute kitties, so I have not been able to make any more of them.   I like that they have tiny pinhole eyes that the background shows through.  The main part, looking like the moon, are drilled shell beads.

My favorite earrings EVER!!

At the Bead Bazaar, I bought glass beads made by members of the Fire and Rain glassblowing group. The two largest bead sets are the ones I purchased, and I made these earrings around them. These are now my favorite earrings of the hundreds I have made.

I demonstrated this spiral rope stitch along with the peyote stitch bracelet at the Bead Bazaar in October. This is an annual event hosted by the Northwest Bead Society.

Peyote stitched bracelet

I really like peyote stitched bracelets, yet this is only my second.  I made up the pattern, and will post another picture when it is finished.  I started this so I would have something to demonstrate at the Bead Bazaar.
