Hi! Welcome to A TIME TO STITCH 5 Reveal. A Time to Stitch is a fun blog hop hosted by dear Christine and Therese. Thank you ladies for organising all this.Today our beadweaving creations are revealed. This is the fifth edition but just my second participation.
This particular edition is called 'The same but different'. A piece should be made and then change its colours or shapes in order to make two variations.
I've chosen a beautiful bracelet using SuperDuos that was designed by Justyna Szlęzak (Eridhan Creations) from Poland.
I've encountered some obstacles but all were overcame.
For my first piece I had envisioned using orchid coloured SuperDuos, but with my lack of experience I had only bought 10 grams, which is not enough and I had no time to order more from the UK. So, I added some in pastel silver that I already had.
Initial bead soup: vega on chalk superDuos, opaque luster amethyst firepolished and satin silver glass beads
WIP: pastel light grey silver superduos added
ORCHID Beaded Bracelet
1st VARIATION: As I didn't have as many SuperDuos as I had planned, Twins beads had to come in and Twins are different as I was going to learn the hard way.
WIP: There are only Twins here and they are smaller than SuperDuos. Some 15/0 seed beads were added because the bracelet started to bend in a strange way.
DAISY Beaded Bracelet
German brown pearls, dark bronze firepolished beads, dark blue picasso superduos (they look like petrol blue) and copper twins beads
WOOD Beaded Bracelet
This was great fun and I learned and practised a lot.
But as this is a blog hop there are other people sharing their creations in their own blogs. Enjoy.
