Hi ..... My apologies for not updating this blog often. My creative juice has not been flowing smoothly so I kept away from doing wire jewelry. Instead, I tried my hands with trying out the patterns for crochet beaded rope. Patterns are aplenty and you can go crazy selecting them. Here are a few photos to share with you of what I did.
Custom order - Mobile hangings with pewter charms, done for a teacher as a gift for her students.
These are a few of the patterns I tried out using whatever seed beads that I have in my stash. I will usually use the normal glass seed beads to practice on the pattern just to see how they look after completion and will only use the high quality ones, once I decide on the pattern for my jewelry.
The seed beads are first strung into the cotton thread a few at a time with needle attached to the thread. A bead spinner is not used here as it involves the beads to be strung in a particular order according to it's colour and quantity. If you are using one colour seed beads, then the bead spinner is useful. Anyway, I don't own a bead spinner! =)
Crochet Beaded Rope Bracelet done with size 11 seed beads in 2 colours.
As you can see from this photo, I did not use shop bought metal findings for the end caps but instead covered it with beaded end caps that I made myself. Often when crafting, it is hard to find just the right way to finish a piece to suitably compliment the effort I have taken. I can use these end caps to finish a necklace or bracelet or some other things that need the use of end caps.

Alright! It's about all I can share for the time being.
Until then, take care and have a pleasant and wonderful weekend.
