Jazzi Bracelet

I taught at Jazzi Beads, in Margate, earlier this year and made this bracelet one evening, while listening to the calming sounds of the ocean outside. You were a wonderful group of ladies and my hosts, Jenny and Diane spoiled me so much. I miss the South Coast,girls!
Right Angle Weave circles , 4mm crystals and size 11 seed beads, 3mm glass pearls and size 15 seeds used to embellish.

Oe La La

Finished, and I love the flowers and the colours.

I used size 11 Delicas, size 15 Miyuki's and size 11 colour lined Miyuki's. I used Peyote stitch variations and viola! Because my time is limited I only added 3 flowers, but you can create a whole bouquet of flowers and leaves

A La Franny

I am teaching a flowers class in June and as the teacher I need to show my skills off. So watch out, I have the idea, but to put it "in beads" is sometimes a different story. Follow the progress and dear Franny, thank you for the inspirational blog.

Latie Bracelet - well I don't know exactly when it began, but I had pupils asking me for specific designs, and then I named the designs after them. There had been the Renate bracelet and the Adele necklace etc. Now I'm on family names. This one is for my Mum's sister - my second mother.
This bracelet is a combination of stitches and adorned with embellishments. I'll teach it in June. As from today I am going to try to be a good girl and post at least once a week.

Sujana Bracelet

The Sujana bracelet I made because I am very lazy, don't like clasps. So I designed a bracelet using herringbone stitch and embellishments to fit nice and tight around the wrist (this is one all our ladies like - one size fits all!)
Sizes 8, 11 and 15 seed beads with pearls and Swaroski bi cones.
