Beading Up A Storm

I have not had a lot of time for blogging...Some health issues keep cropping up, but I have managed to get some beading done.

Thought you would like to see the latest effort..

These are little kimonos made into a necklace .

Shocking pink with 24 kt. gold beads, and the second color combo is red and black with silver. The 18 inch chains are made to resemble cherry blossoms... I will be adding them to my Etsy shop if anyone is interested.

I must say I cannot stop beading..... I guess it is a good thing since I am finally back on track and creating somethingHere is what I have been doing ...I really enjoyed the earring pattern I recently learned, so I did it again using different size beads,, Interesting how it changes the look. The long dangly (is that a word!)ones are a new pattern I just tried. I think they are soooo pretty..Next I got out my beading loom and decided to try this again. I only had one class using it and I did have some trouble with the threading..... However along with some tutorials online I managed to get going.... My problem now is finishing it and what to do with all the threads you are left with...sigh.... back to finding more tutorials I am a pianist and this pattern was fun to do.... not able to get any sound out of it though!! haha
Ps....Sorry I lost the comments that were here.
I redid the post trying to get the pictures to enloarge!!! How annoying .... has left a new comment on your post "BITTEN BY THE BEADING BUG": Love all that beaded jewelery. I is great!!! I'm trying to learn needle tatting. All of your projects are soooo neat. You are just so creative.Hugs, Pat
Dolores has left a new comment on your post "BITTEN BY THE BEADING BUG": The beaded jewellery is gorgeous. Isn't it funny how one gets into these 'moods' or frenzies about creating.

Something New

I'm not sure what was going on with me but I have not been very productive lately.. Napping has been my best suit! I hate when that happens..
However I did manage to get my muse in gear and have been enjoying some beading..
I made this beaded scarf... Isn't it pretty... Sure to look nifty on a plain dress, blouse or jacket. It is mad of gold bugle beads and bronze seed beads, and has a fringe of a variety of different complimentary beads. It is 47 inches long.... sure took awhile but well worth the effort.
