New earrings...

Made some few more earrings today.


Second beading course

Last Thursday I went for my second beading course. This is good fun!
Again we met at the beading shop's second floor. Just two of us + the teacher this time but just as cozy as last time.

This time we were going to make a heart pendant of 4 mm Swarovski beads and Fireline wire.
There will be more hearts from me for sure, but I have some few more ideas to rough it up a bit.
I am thinking Swarovski, metal beads and leather straps...Time will tell.

Red Swarovski heart pendant
I am in seriously need of a camera with a bigger lens cause it is getting harder and harder to get good close-up pictures, but hope it is good enough for now.

First jewellery course

I have decided to join a few jewellery courses the next couple of months.

The first one was a week ago, just up the road from where I live and after work so really just perfect.

This time we learned to make a Colour Blended bracelet.
Neadle, black Fireline tread and six different seed beads colors were needed. We were six ladies around the table and a superb teacher - and off we went.

First we made a ladder which later turned out to be the support and back of the bracelet and later more beads were added to the front of the bracelet.

This is the result :

Half finished
