Ava Nagilla Pendant Necklace

My newest beading tutorial is "Ava Nagilla" - a pendant using Ava beads, Tinos and Kheops par Puca  beads, Swarovski crystals and Japanese seed beads. I had much fun working with all those shaped beads and see how they fit together so nicely.
The pendant can be hang from one-strand or two-strand necklace of any type (instructions for the changes necessary to allow this are included in the tutorial).

The tutorial for this project can be purchased for instant download here.

Wandering Path Bracelet

After a long, long while, I'm happy to list my latest project called Wandering Path Bracelet. This is a fun project to bead, using a few beading stitches, and the bracelet comes out soft and elegant.

At the moment I'm offering the kit in 3 different color choices:
Gold/Sapphire Blue/Emerald Green,
Silver/Light Sapphire/Sapphire Blue and
Bronze/Amethyst purple/Rose AB.

If you are interested in a different color combination, you are welcome to contact me through Etsy or by email and we'll discuss the options.

Meandering Cuff Bracelet

 Meandering - Pattern by Carol Dean Sharpe / Sandfibers

The second I saw it, I immediately fell in love with the geometric pattern of this bracelet. It is called "Meandering", designed by Carol Dean Sharpe of SandFibers. And if you prefer to work with loom or square stitch, there's a pattern for that too.

From someone who usually find it hard to follow a pattern, surprisingly (or not) this one was so fun to follow and see how it builds as you bead... 

The clasp I designed for it is a bezeled rectangular Swarovski Hotfix stone that I bought years ago, and now was the right time to finally use it...
