I decided to branch out from my usual beads and make some different sets.
This took me a couple months to finish. It’s a pattern by Ilga Leja – Lady Of The Forest. The instructions were one of the best well-written ones I’ve ever used. I didn’t like the yarn I choose for this as it’s on the rough side. After blocking it softened up some but I probably will never use it again. I do like they long colorways in this yarn though.
More beads that I made this week.
Turquoise enamels with copper blue frit on top. Reminds me of a sea mist.
Two sets of silvered coral shards on ivory with dots of fine silver and etched.
Cosmic copper shards on ivory with dots of fine silver and etched for a matte look.
My bad attempt at striking color glass beads. They should turn a bunch of different colors. I’d be happy if mine turned any color.
Another set of biscotti and coffee grounds frit encased.
