Dramatic SuperDuo Bracelet

This is my new bracelet design, made with SuperDuo and seed beads. I had so much fun designing and working on this project, and I love the texture created with just those two types of beads! This is exactly the kind of project I needed in order to make me feel relaxed in beading again - it works up fast and is not too complicated...
A tutorial is available in both my Artfire and Etsy shops. In this design I combine two beading stitches to complete rows of these two-hole beads fast and easy!

If you are wondering if Twin beads will also do for this project - they might work if you pick the uniform ones.. and please consider that there might be some slight differences in measurements when using twin beads.

Angel Wings Pendant

This is my newest project - Angel Wings - a reversible pendant, made with seed beads, crystal bicones, drop bead and fire polished beads. A tutorial is available in both my Artfire and Etsy shops. I also included another design option in the tutorial as a bonus.

This is one of those beading projects that are rather simple looking, but it takes quite a lot of time to design, and every single seed bead strung effect the structure of the design. It is quite fun and simple to make, though, if you know how to do so in advance...
