Ear wires tutorial on how to make easy ear wires. Being that they are easy to make I think beginners should try them too. The ear wires are simple yet elegant, and because their simplicity will go well with many kinds and shapes of handmade earrings. ^_^
A few weeks ago I was contacted by Perles&Co and asked if I would like to try their new Star beads and of course I said yes! So I’ve made this bracelet and I’m working on a circular piece that I hope to finish in the following days. 🙂
I’ve decided to publish also some free video tutorials, again! I’ve missed doing that, it’s such a joy making a video tutorial, almost like being in a class, much better than writing it – it feels less lonely, if you know what I mean. 🙂
The project is a pair of earrings made bezelling a 10mm Swarovski rivoli, with 15/0 round seed beads from Miyuki, using the netting technique and then embellishing with picots – quite simple and fast to make. Happy beading! ❤
Another beading project from me! I’ve finally tried the new Zoliduo bead. I only had a small package of them, as I only bought enough to try them out. Because of their shape, I thought they would look nice around a bezelled stone, so that’s what I did.
The pattern works with one side zoliduos (either one). However, you could use both sides (one side per earring) and make a pair of specular earrings. 🙂
The component is quite easy and fast to do, so if you’re in search of ideas for the Christmas gifts, this is one you should consider: I’m sure they’d be very appreciated gifts. 🙂
New beading project from me. 🙂 As you probably remember, my previous beady project was a lovely beaded chain. So, this new necklace is made using a quasi identical chain to which I’ve added some lovely flowers. 🙂 The flowers are made bezeling and embellishing 14mm Swarovski rivolis with only Miyuki 15/0 seed beads. I hope you’ll like it! 🙂

I’m very happy to present you my newest design: this lovely bracelet made with 5mm RounDuos (from PotomacBeads) 4mm chaton montees, 3mm rounds and seed beads. It is easy to make and works up fairly quickly!
I hope you like my new web shop! Please, if you’ve read this post and toured the site already, do let me know what you think of it: I’d love to have your feedback.
I still have to add a number of products, for which I’ve decided I needed to update the pictures and make some changes to the tutorials too, so that is the reason some categories have only one or two products.
Finally, after taking a vacation and staying with my mum, in my home country Romania, for three weeks, I managed to finish writing a new tutorial. It’s a pair of lovely earrings I made while on vacation :).
The earrings are made with 12mm rivolis, 3mm bicones and Miyuki seed beads and drop/fringe beads. I’ve bezeled the 12mm rivoli and then embellished it giving it a triangular, fan like shape. And I called them Fanned Away, a name I quite love. 😀
I’ve just finished this bracelet and love it! Isn’t it lovely? I’m so happy with the clasp, can you see it? It’s a Swarovski 6mm bezeled chaton. It could actually be used as a button. 🙂 You could sew it on shirts or other items!
The tutorial will be ready in a week, probably. I have another project I would like to work on first. And beading is so much more fun that writing tutorials! So I need to bead a little more, before starting to work on the written tutorial. 😀
And this is the bracelet made with the Arcos par Puca beads. I am very happy with the result, I must say. It is quite challenging to work with beads that have multiple holes, at least for me, at least for now. 🙂
I have finally got the chance to use the Arcos par Puca beads. I must say that three holes seemed a lot to me, and I hadn’t really had a clue on what to do with all three of them! 🙂 Because not using all three of them, would have made feel a little weird… yes, I know it sound silly, but then I think I am a little silly. 😀
