The Beaded Week 35


This blog has moved and will no longer be updated at this location. Please go to and follow the blog to get notified of new content.

It’s been a while since I posted one of these. I’ve done a lot of beading and chain maille. I’ve had a fun time, summer is here and I’m feeling good! So here’s what’s happened since last time, in pictures.

EDIT: So to clarify, I added the origins of the jewelry I had been working on the past few weeks. On the day I was just too lazy to write since most of it had been mentioned before.

Picture 1.
Top left. A CRAW heart I don’t know the origin of. I give these away as gifts to my customers.
Top right. Video tutorial in italian here.
Bottom left. “Narcis Pendant”. Design by Rachel Sim. Beadwork Magazine June/July 2014.
Bottom right. Loomed cuff. Instructions found on

Picture 2.
These 3 “Interwoven” bracelets are made following a tutorial that can be purchased here.

All but the top left are designs that can be found at UnkamenSupplies.

    1. I wish I could take credit for all of these designs but sadly only the necklace in the last picture is my own design. I could make some sort of tutorial for the necklace I suppose. I’ll add it to my to do list. Thank you!


  1. L.O.V.E. the CRAW heart pattern and your choice of colors! I followed a pic of the heart through Pinterest to you. Would you be willing to share the pattern? I understand it is not your design…I would gladly pay the designer for the pattern if you could point me in their direction. Thanks,


    1. I wish I could but I don’t remember where I saw it. It’s pretty straight forward tho, just craw 10 units and start the 11th on one side of unit 10 to make a L shape. CRAW 6 more units for a total of 7 and the last 8th unit will be shared with the 1st, so you’d only use 4 beads then. And then all that’s left is to embellish. Not sure if I explained that well. Let me know if you need more. 🙂


  2. I am very familiar with RAW but haven’t tried
    CRAW yet…I will follow your instructions and get back to you. I really like the use of the firepolish across the top…really pops the top of the heart.


  3. Your Alternating Spiral Belini bracelet is gorgeous! You have a gift of putting together colors that make for interesting, unusual, and beautigul finished pieces. Great Job!! (I tried to leave you a comment, but I’m not on instagram..yet)
