Edwardian lace collar made after a tutorial from Nancy Peterson. Several years ago I've started my first step at beadweaving with netting technique and am so happy to have found this nice new tutorial. With its shimmering gold beads, tanzanite and champaign the collar has an lucious appearance. I've made a little change as I don't like so much the picot edges so with the round edge it has a more solid character.

How can we start...

the week better with a sunny blue sky and a new colorful necklace?

Apple-green, olivine, pink-purple and amethyst for the awaking nature, where all trees and flowers starts blooming. I love this beaded bead as I have so many possibilities with color combinations so I'm able to make one for each dress I find at my cabinet ;-))

As I'm still a fan of vintage I use oxidised brass for the chain and tassel.

Wishing you all a sunny week with loads of fun!

Little Pralinés....

came to my mind if I look at the single elements of this bracelet. It was somewhat difficult to frame the small cat-eyes, but at least I'm happy with the result.

Wish you all a nice and sunny weekend!

Cellini Spirale

My dear clayfriend Eliska sent me Rocailles from Jablonex in different colors. These Rocailles are slightly bigge then those I use regularly. I searched my stock and found several beads for a beautiful mix and stitch this nice spiral. It was fun to work and I like the result.

I still have some other beautiful colors in my stock and am sure this won't be the last spiral. At this point, thank you once again Eliska!

Time is running as I'm very busy with some new organisations at home what takes most of my time. Beside Birthdays from family and friends are coming and so I have to be prepared. This bracelet from Zuzzl I liked much and I take again the experience with RAW what is not my favorite technique. I have enough drops to go and as the receiver is an absolute autumn-type the colors are matching perfect to her.
For the base I used Toho 134F, for the embellishment Toho 15/221 and drops MK 134, Toho 162c, 329. Now I hope it fits well and she like it.
