A Time To Stitch 5 Reveal

My Bead Soup Blog Party post is HERE. You're not late and the Party isn't a sprint. I'm still hopping the 8th BSBP too. 

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

Preciosa seed beads are smaller than regular 11/0 seed beads so I had to add more than I was supposed to when finishing the edges.

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

2nd VARIATION: For my third piece and considering my limited amount of SuperDuos, I tried to mix those with Twins and I was successful.

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.
