Back on the bike!

I haven't done any beading since I last posted. There are several bracelets still waiting to be clasped, I didn't have any patterns to loom, and I wanted to catch up on my recorded tv programs. What excuses eh! :)

Anyway, here's what's got me back in the saddle so to speak. My sister wanted something narrower than the bracelets I've made so far, so this is what I'm working on.




I'm past halfway so should be able to finish it by Christmas....perhaps.... I probably should have used a matte red so the gold didn't blend too much. Hopefully she'll like it anyway - the important thing is it has red in it lol!

I don't know when I'll be posting again, so I will take this opportunity to wish you a merry Christmas and a blessed new Year.

Good colour combo

I made this one this evening.



I was going to use alighted brown but I think this one works better.

Hopefully I can make some more over the next few days.

Have a good night :)

Forgot!

I managed to clasp 3 more bracelets this morning.



















Rings

While I'm waiting to finish the bracelet that's on the loom, I thought I would have a go at some simple peyote rings. And here are the results. I made the first two today and the others last weekend. I hope you like their simplicity :)



















The narrower ones feel more comfortable to wear. I'll be making some more tomorrow. I haven't decided on patterns yet, I'll see what I come up with at the time :)

Since the edging on the green bracelet will be brick edging, I think I'll cut it off the loom so I can get something else on.

Have a good night and Saturday!

Catchup!

I can't remember if I posted this so here it is (again?). It's still on the loom as I'm still thinking about how to edge it.




Aside from that, I had an idea in mind (off loom weaving) which I want to try out. It's taken a different direction but I'll go with the flow for now and explore my 'original idea' later on. I've only got this picture of it so far.




I ordered some clasps the start of last week and they FINALLY made it to me today!! I had to return some today as they weren't the right size. Anyway, I managed to put the clasp on two of them.

This is a pink version of the zig zag pattern. I'm really loving the colour combinations despite not normally liking pink :)



This one was posted about a long time ago and was just waiting for the clasp.




Hopefully I can finish off 3 more tomorrow. I'll post them as I complete them.

At the moment I'm blogging from my phone so the pictures unfortunately may not be the best. I'll get some time and return to post better ones.

Till next time, goodnight :)
