Night in the Palace Bracelet

Night in the Palace is my latest bracelet design. The bracelet is made with Swarovski crystal beads, glass pearls and Miyuki seed beads.

I had so much fun designing it, using somewhat unusual thread paths, which allow making the bracelet in one continuous path. Although it has an intricate look and it may look complicated to make, you will be surprised at how fast this bracelet works!

The beading tutorial for this bracelet is available in my Etsy and Artfire shops.

Sparkling Water Lily - New Beading Tutorial

Lately there are so many new shapes of beads coming to the market one after another, that I can hardly keep up!  I recently ordered some SuperUno beads, gum drops, two-hole lentil beads and twisted daggers, which I am yet to play with, but there are already new shaped beads that I need to get my hands on, like pellets, Bibo, Pip beads... I guess that the more there are, the merrier! I love experimenting new designs and possibilities with the new bead shapes... It gives my beading creativity a boost! 

My latest project - Sparkling Water Lily -  is made with Starman's Czechmate two-hole triangle beads, Swarovski crystal bicone beads and Japanese seed beads.  
It is a dimensional beaded component, that can be used as a pendant, as a connector beaded bead or for an elegant ring. 

Another design with these beautiful triangle beads is in the works and I hope to be able to finish it as soon as I get more of these beautiful triangles in other colors. 

The tutorial for the 3 design options of Sparkling Water Lily, is available in both my Etsy and my Artfire shops.
