Pendant

2017 Pendant Berni Zipf

Made this gorgeous Pendant today. So happy with it, now I need to make a necklace for it. I think I will do that in a Russian Spiral. Will post when complete.

If you want to try this I used the pattern from this page:

Hugs and Kisses Bracelets

Hugs and Kisses Bracelets

I am just lovin making these Hugs and Kisses Bracelets.

Do a google search and you will find lots of tutorials and intructions for them like this one:

I use elastic thread so they are stretchy and easy to get on and off.  I like to use the thicker 1mm thread and this can be a problem as I make several passes through each bead.  I am always trying to find beads with a larger hole.  I have even resorted to asking my husband to drill out beads to give me more room for the elastic.

Anyway just wanted to share my creations. Thanks for looking.

Blogging

Ok I have finally decided to start using my blog properly.  First of many posts!!

I made this bracelet and earring set on the weekend.

I mostly followed the instructions by Tatiana Shapovalova from this website:

Just the way I joined the individual beaded beads was slightly different.
