Butterfly Challenge Blog Hop

Hi and welcome!

Today is the Reveal Day for the Butterfly Challenge hosted by talented Alenka Obid (aka as Pepita) from Slovenia. Thank you so much to Alenka for your organising.

After the indecision created by seeing so many beautiful patterns out there (you can read about it here), I've decided to make two bracelets.

One bracelet is a peyote pattern from MigoToChou (Amanda). This is a beautiful, feminine and elegant bracelet done in odd two-count peyote pattern. To my surprise, I didn't how to do it and I found it complicated and time-consuming. In a blog post, I've found an easy way to overcome it: doing an even count peyote and eventually adding the rest using brick stitch (pinned here). How about that?

I've tried to use similar or close delica beads as the ones from the original pattern so it looks pretty close to the photo seen in Etsy.

And the second bracelet is a Deborah Roberti design. It is called Butterfly Lace Bracelet. It looks lacy. I don't know what kind of stitch you call it. Usually made with two colours of bicones, I've opted for a simpler look. I've used matte dark blue seed beads and Swarovski crystal bicones.

If you've been following my blog for some time, you may already know that I have opened an Etsy  shop for my beading pieces. You can finding both bracelets for sale there.

As this is a blog hop, you can expect other participants. This is the list. Do check them out but let me warn you for finding 'out of this world' beading! Be(ad) happy!

Latest makes

Hi, dear readers!

Today, I'm sharing my latest makes. A custom order for several bag charms and some gifts.

Bag charms in various colours:

And last, but not least, a light purple bag charm that is special to me because the beads came from a fellow blogger.

These glass beads were a gift from Lizzie who writes The Need to Bead blog that you can find here. Thank you, Lizzie.

I have made some pieces of jewellery for gifting on birthdays and at Christmas (sorry about the late posting).

Tomorrow, I'll be sharing my creations for the Butterfly Challenge. Stay tuned!
