Shawls and Scarves

Been working on several knits…..

Fins-OnTableLove the shape of this one. It’s got a lot of beading but it’s hard to see so here’s a close up:

Then something similar in pattern but without the “fins” shaping:

Soy Candles

Soy candles are so expensive, I made my own.

SoyCandles-Tin
Of course I had to add a bead to the top of the containers. Was kind of a challenge punching a hole into the tin. Next time I’m going to use glass jars as the lids are easy to work with.

Box Bead Necklace and Other Things

Finally got around to making a silver box bead necklace. Had to add some glass beads too.

SilverBoxBeadNecklace

Also finished another message locket pendant.

MessageLocket-BlueI used a glass bullet cab on the top and domed the bottom.

 

I wanted to practice what I learned in Joanna Gollberg’s glass so I did a prong setting for the lavender CZ. The cabochon is glass with enamels and frit on it.

Beaded Ornaments

This is a pattern by Heather Collin. These are kind of fun and can be used as ornaments or pendants or just hanging decorations. Just finished these three. Need to get more beads to make more.

It’s Been A While

Gosh, I haven’t added anything for a while. I haven’t been out making beads for a couple of months due to hurting my back. Still been making things, just not beads.Eggs1

EggPendants Beaded a bunch of eggs and made them into pendants. These were have a wooden egg shaped core.

BagMade a crochet barrel bag to hold my knitting projects. This bag too FOREVER to make. I wanted the bag to be sturdy and crochet tightly. Made with Shibui Twig yarn.

Ecru BlueMix OmbreKnitted some dish cloths for Christmas presents. These are made out of 100% cotton yarn.

FiveWrapBracelet FiveWrapBracelet1FiveWrapBracelet2Made a few leather, string and beaded bracelets. Uses some deer antler buttons for the clasps.

Bail ForgedCollarTook Fred Zweig’s class on forged collars. Was able to make a couple collars and a bail. Really fun class. Fred has so much knowledge and is willing to share everything he knows.
