What a great pattern from OUR FAVORITE STITCHES 3 by Holly Hancock, owner of Beads in Tampa, FL. Holly calls her pattern "Center of Attraction" and is on page 4 of her book.
"Copper Canyon" was woven with Copper Metallic Rainbow Matte Tilas and #11 Copper Delicas as the base and the following as embellishment: #11 Duracoat Galv Dk Berry, #8 Topaz, #15 Lime Green, 4 MM Olivine Preciosa Rondells, and Copper SuperDuos.
Kazuri, the Swahili word for 'small and beautiful' produces a wide range of hand made, hand painted ceramic jewelry that shines with a kaleidoscope of African colors and Kenyan art that reflects a culture and appeal to a worldwide fashion market. Kazuri's beautifully finished products are made to an international standard and are sold worldwide. I have purchased the beads I used in this necklace fromAntelope Beads in Boulder, CO.
The beaded chain is my variation of Cindy Holsclaw's pattern "Diamond O" free on Cindy's siteBead Origami.My variation uses the new "O" beads, #11 Seed Beads (two colors) and #8 Seed Beads.
This is a fun double sided spiral bracelet. Each side has it's own personality. Work up using #11, #8 & #6 seed beads using a variation of Ellen Tihane's pattern in August 2012 BEAD AND BUTTON page 26 and 27.
"On The Road Again" Bracelet is made with 14 different shades of #11 Delica beads.
This bracelet is the first in a series of "camping out" themed bracelets I'll be working on over the next year. Since we are now full timing in our motor-home it is fitting that the first bracelet is little class C motor-homes.
The "OH! OH! Bracelet is my variation of a Potomac Beads pattern taught by Heather called the Ripple Bracelet. My color palette "Terracotta Sunset" comes together with turquoise Swarovski crystal bicones and earth tone Japanese and Czech seed beads.The bracelet uses almost 8 grams of the new "O" beads, hence the name "OH! OH!"
"Terracotta Sunset" supply list: Copper Super Duos, 4 MM Turquoise Swarovski Crystal Bicones, #11 Matsuno turquoise(#399) Japanese seed beads, O Beads Czech glass Jet Bronze, Rulla Czech glass Bronze Luster, 4 MM Burnt Orange Druk Beads, and TierraCast Antique Copper Oval Shell Button.
Sorry this bracelet is already spoken for, but I will be glad to create a similar bracelet for you just name your color palette and wrist size. The price of $40 includes shipping and handling.
Vivid Delica #11 seed beads in Bright Fuchsia TSL, Bright Lime Luminous, Crystal Watermelon ICCL, and Black Matte make this cuff POP! Finished off with a silver plated tube clasp with bar from the Etsy shop "mindmyownbeadsness" this cuff is like wearing a piece of art...
A special request from one of my clients had me pulling out one of my all time favorite patterns. It has been a long time since I have made the peyote waving flag bracelet and I had forgotten how much fun it is to weave. The bracelet comes together quickly with size 11 seed beads and making those flags wave is always a treat. Thanks to my beading buddy, Barb Booker, for sharing this pattern with me several years ago.
All beads used in this bracelet are Delica Duracoat Galvanized #11 seed beads in the following hues: Light Pewter, Pink Blush, Hot Pink, Mint Green, and Dark Sea Foam. The bracelet is finished off with a 20mm Tube Clasp with Bar in silver.
I've discovered these new tube clasps with bar to finish off this peyote stitch bracelet. I found the clasps on Etsy at the shop "mindmyownbeadsness". These clasps finish off the peyote bracelets in a much smoother way, then clasps I've used in the past.
