Adriana Flower Bracelet

Beautiful feminine bracelet, that can be a stunning necklace too! Craw and peyote stitch combined and not difficult at all. Even though the pattern came so easily to me, I struggled for a few days to get the pattern published. At one stage I wanted to name my beautiful Adriana , Satan's daughter,  so frustrated I was with trying to publish the pattern.  First the illustrations that I did, did  not save correctly, then the file gave me that awful " file corrupted" message and in the last few days I rewrote, re illustrate the pattern at least six times. Well, it is now done and  posted  at last. And just for the record -  I was sooo  happy with the first pattern Enjoy

Minerva Warrior Bracelet

Minerva is a step by step beading pattern with full color diagrams and a written beading tutorial. Six pages to print. Czech O beads and Miyuki half tila beads are used. This bracelet is worth the effort and not difficult at all.

Carrie and Elizabeth

Finished the pattern at last.  Both the variations will be included in the pattern. So, if all goes well, I'll post the link to the pattern on Saturday.
This pendant is so beautiful I am going to make  a few extra in different colors  to match all my outfits.
Carrie is the pendant for the no nonsense lady, she wants something feminine but not over the top with bling as she wants to be in the background
Elizabeth is the choice for the women who wants to attract attention, still stylish but she want to be seen! What better way as to have bling bling around your neck


Fiona is such a lovely and elegant dress ring. The bonus is that it uses small amounts of left over beads and is quick to make.  The pattern can also be a beaded bead and I'll post some variations on this theme later on.
Basic knowledge required - tubular/circular peyote stitch
The pattern is very detailed with step by step instructions and illustrations
Materials - Miyuki half tila 2.5 x 5 mm, various sizes seedbeads in small quatities

Gypsy Bracelet

I absolutely adore this bright and shiny bracelet. Wearing it will brighten even the dullest day.  Gypsies are so colorful and this bracelet needed a colorful name. Hear the tambourines!  Uneven count peyote stitch in various sizes beads and shapes give you this very textured bracelet.
The original bracelet was designed for my students in my peyote master class group. But I used dull colors at the time. Must admit when I reworked the pattern in the brighter colors, it looked a lot nicer too
Pattern available at my Etsy store
