I love to bead. So... why not blog about it. Beading is a passion of mine and I enjoy making jewelry. I'am not a designer yet, so the projects I make are designer pieces. Please enjoy looking at my eye-candy and leave a comment.Ladybeadress!
BEADED BUGS! I created these for my sweet grandson, who loves bugs. He had to name them. Top left we have Speckled Spider, next to him is Rudy the Scorpion, Wiggles the Centipede and poky the Caterpillar. My little man is such a hammmmmmmmm Designer, Ladybeadress!
This Bracelet is Designed using a Peyote Stitch. The bracelet center section is made with 11/0 seed beads one half inch wide. Peridot Green Bugles beads line the peyote strip. Swaroski 4mm Padpara Crystals bring the bugles together creating this fun pattern. Designer, Ladybeadress!
The Peyote and Netting Stitch were used to create these bracelets. Incorporating Netting between rows of the Peyote sections add texture, interest and depth to the design. Swaroski 4mm crystals are added between peyote sections to complete the design. Notice the Bronze and Olive Green pattern. It shows a slight difference in the designs. So may ways to create this beauty, just use your imagination. Kathy King is the designer of this pattern and it can be found in Beadwork Magazine, August/Sept. 2006. Ladybeadress!
Designed using size 11/0 triangle beads and size 11/0 silver lined medium purple seed beads. The three sections are beaded individually and determines the width of your creation. Purple Velvet 4mm Swaroski Crystals are used to weave each section together with 15/0 light lavander seed beads. A snap closer and 6mm crystals finishes this bracelet. Designer Ladybeadress!
This flexible bracelet adds grace and glamour to any ensemble. The bracelet has a flat bottom surface, preventing this beauty from turning over on your wrist. A core is made using 8/0 seed beads and flexible beading wire to help stabilize the core. The crystals are suspended between a zigzagging line of 4mm black crystals and size 11/0 gold seed beads creating an elegant embellishment. The Designer of this pattern is Brenda Mac Lellan . The pattern can be found in Bead and Button Magazine 2007. Ladybeadress!
This Russian Spiral Bracelet does not have a core bead in it's design. It's created using 8/0 Hex Beads in two colors and 11/0 seed beads in a color of your choice, brings this Russian Spiral together. I used metallic hex green and metallic dark blue beads, with sliver blue 11/0 seed beads to create mine. Regardless of your choice of beads, this bracelet has plenty of spunk. The pattern came from a beading group I belong too. More then one designer for this pattern and any popular beading magazine would have a pattern.Ladybeadress!
The Spiral Rope Bracelet is characterized by flashy loops swirling around a hidden core. Using size 8/0 seed beads for the core and size 11/0 seed beads in two colors creates this spiral. The different styles that can be achieved are endless. Your look can be chunky or dainty. In my opinion there is more then one designer for the spiral. Two name just one would be unfair. Beadwork magazine and Bead and Button magazine are two popular beading books. Patterns can be found in one of their many issues. Ladybeadress!
