These earrings are another free pattern from Linda’s Crafty Inspirations. If you don’t already follow her blog I suggest that you do, she blogs a lot and offers plenty of inspiration.
The pattern can be found here. It’s easy to follow and the earrings are fairly easy to make, although I don’t know what kind of witchcraft she’d use to get through the same 15° so many times. I could only go through a few times and after that I just had to turn around instead. You’ll know what I mean if you try the pattern. Turning around is not a problem though, the thread wont show up, at least mine didn’t.
I think they turned out great. They are very pretty earrings, the pictures I took does not do them justice.

And here’s another Lovely Lace Bracelet from the same lady. I’ve blogged about this pattern here. I made this one with Miyuki dark bronze seed beads and I think it turned out better than the bronze one I made before. You can get the free pattern here.

thebeadedweek2015_05dI got some new cord from this shop and made another macrame ring. This one turned out a little bit bigger than the pink one I made with another type of cord. This blue one is a waxed polyester cord. I loved working with it, it is so much easier to get nice knots with a waxed cord. I also used bigger beads, 8° Toho in bronze and dark bronze, because I could not fit the 11°s on this cord even though it is supposed to be the same size. Ah well, I like the ring anyways. 🙂

thebeadedweek2015_05cI bought this tutorial from SmadarsTreasure on Etsy. The design is so pretty but for some reason it did not turn out that way for me. I guess it is a tension problem as usual and I think I’ll just undo this one and maybe start over with a different color.

Thanks for reading! ♥

It’s been a fun and productive week. I’ve made 2 of Gwen Fisher’s beaded beads although the green one will be scrapped because I really don’t like how that one turned out. It actually looks better in the picture than it does live.  But the beads are fun to make so it’s all good.

I used CzechMates Bricks to make a cool wrap bracelet. Happy with it.

I downloaded one of Sabine Lippert’s new and improved free patterns for a lace bracelet. She used a ribbon and a button for a closure in her bracelet but I think I will try to find a nice looking box clasp for my version. Fun to make and I think it looks very pretty.

The bottom right picture is a CRAW rope that is the beginning of a very cool bracelet. I’m nearly done, I’m just waiting for a Etsy order to arrive so I can complete the bracelet.

I’ve got all the beads I need for the next box aswell so I will get started on that soon.

See you next week!
