Black and White

One of my favorite color combinations is black and white. Here are some items from an old collection I made:

First necklace is crocheted, using DMC thread and dagger beads in two sizes, plus seed beads and Czech multi-cut beads.

The second one is a tubular peyote rope with peyote beaded beads.

Third is a simple strung long necklace with various glass beads.

Next is a Snowflake-Obsidian cabochon pendant, surrounded with Miyuki triangle beads, attached to a double-core leather collar.

And the last is a bracelet with varios Czech glass beads, strung on an elastic cord.

3D Star

3D Star Beaded with Delicas

This is the second star I made, and I like the result better than the first one.
This time I used Delica seed beads instead of regular ones and in addition, I filled the star with a 12 mm round bead, so it has more volume than the first one. I still have to think what to attach it to..

Freeform Beaded Necklace

I used Japanese seed beads and Czech glass beads for the freeform beaded part, and leather cords and metal wire for the closing.
I worked in Peyote, Square, Herringbone and RAW stitches.
It was fun making it.. :)
