I love amigurami so yay to that idea. Also love hats =)
Re my bracelet, I may have ordered some delica beads today in white, blue and silver....I also have had an idea for a pattern that is not diamonds....I want to have a play and see if I can do it though as I am very new to peyote and jewellery making (other than simple stringing with cheap beads) but I am addicted already!
Welcome to the wonderful world of Craftster swaps Cherie!
I have an apology to make...I thought I had posted in here and said hello to you all, but it appears I have not so hello =) I am in the process of pinning things (mainly from everyone else's pins) and looking forward to partners so I can do some proper stalking!
Wow the shawl is beautiful, I love the clutch and those eggs are exquisite! I have sent my questionnaire in and now just need to decide what to make. Would anybody be interested in a delica bead peyote bracelet in red silver and green diamonds (Christmas colours for winter wonderland but not a Christmas design)
=) yep that is how I thought we were supposed to send them....then when your parcel came in 100 little baggies ( =p) and so many of the same things I was worried! Glad you love the necklace too =) *breathes a sigh of relief* thanks for being such a lovely partner =)
I then received from anna.wahnsinn - and am absolutely blown away by the amount and quality of what she sent - this is going to be even more pic heavy! I'm starting with a picture of everything - just to show the sheer scale of it:
Purple is my favourite colour, and Amethyst my favourite stone - she sent a selection of different sized round amethyst beads:
I also told her I loved heart shaped beads - and she sent a load of those as well!
Purple and hearts - perfect!!!
Some blue round beads (I think they're ceramic) they're very pretty
A lovely selection of green beads
two packets of different sized beautiful red beads:
a big supply of Delicas - we had been discussing peyote and she said delicas worked really well instead of seed beads - I hadn't got any, but ordered a couple of packets to give them a go on her recommendation - and then she sent an extra 5 bags full - I couldn't believe the amount! Three different purples, black and green
As if that wasn't enough - she included some beading wire:
and a beautiful bracelet - which is SO me!
Picking a favourite here was hard - I am LOVING the effect of Delicas on a bracelet I am making, being an amethyst lover I am amazed at all the beautiful amethyst beads she bought - they will be well used! However I fell in love with this bead:
thank you so much - I really hope I have included everything - got slightly confused!!!!
