X-mas Tree Tutorial

I’ve made another tutorial. It is available on Etsy and YouTube.

You can buy it HERE, or watch the movie HERE.

I’m going to try to be more productive in the new year. I have recently discovered Bullet Journaling and I hope this will help me get s**t done.

Until next time ♥

Happy Halloween!

It’s not something I celebrate myself but I couldn’t resist making these Halloween Pumpkin earrings. They are too cute!

The pattern and instructional video comes from cr3stina on YouTube. The pumpkins are made with peyote stitch and brick stitch. The video is in italian and can be viewed here.

Box #6 has been completed a head of time but since it is November’s box I shall wait until it is November to post it.

See you next week!

Another project from “A Beaded Romance” by Kelly Wiese, this one is called Mobile Necklace and Earrings.
The necklace chain is made using the Chevron stitch which was a new technique for me. It’s fast and easy and it makes a nice and even chain.
The diamond shapes in the necklace and earrings are made with brick stitched cylinder beads. Again, I chose to add a “normal” lobster clasp but it is much too big for this necklace so it will have to be replaced if it were to be sold.
The whole project didn’t take very long to make, it was easy and not too boring but my thumb and index finger are sore from constantly piercing them with my needle while stitching.
I think I broke 2 needles and I’m beginning to suspect that those John James needles I bought aren’t the real deal. They either break at the eye or I just snap them in half. I suppose that’s why they come in a pack of 25…
