what do you think about this? i just whipped it up in the GIMP. Maybe needs more "wind"... just an idea.


That looks pretty cool! I like it. Even though lyrics seems like a good idea seems like it might be a little too much to add to the shoe. I think you need to add something simple. And something like that squiggly design would look really cool.

I have been quite happy with using Beadalon 7, however, I only use this for lighter bead work. I use Soft Flex for heavier beads that I use. And when making longer necklaces, like 32 inches in length and 16 inches around, I use hemp cord to string those on. I usually use heavier bigger beads and this holds up really well and is a lot less expensive to use.

When using beads this large, I use the Soft Flex for smaller necklaces, like choker style, and this one was strung on the hemp cord.

5  New choker necklaces! Image heavy. in Beads: Completed Projects by snlfreak83 on: January 06, 2008 02:23:54 PM
I recently started making beaded jewelry and decided to post some of my latest creations. I usually make hemp necklaces and other woven types of jewelry. So this is something that I've been practicing for the last few months and I finally think I've got the hang of using the crimp beads and tools for tying off the ends of the necklaces.















I'm obsessed with Firemountain Gems. I got some of my supplies from them. They have a great selection to choose from and you can really create some unique looking pieces. Thanks for taking a look!

7  Re: Lovely, Dainty Bracelet With Floating Beads in Beads: Completed Projects by snlfreak83 on: September 28, 2005 10:06:23 PM
Looks great but my only question is...does it pull at arm hair? Cause everytime I wear certain kind of bracelets little arm hairs seem to get stuck in it and it hurts.

Just wondering...bizzare question I know.

here is a super blurry picture of it on...it's very light and floaty and doesn't grab your arm fur......






AWESOME!!! Smiley

8  simple but cute hemp chokers!! in Beads: Completed Projects by snlfreak83 on: September 27, 2005 05:12:15 PM
Ok, so this isn't the hardest thing really to make. But it does take awhile and get tedious at times.

This one took awhile because each of the beads had holes that were too small to thread the hemp through so I have this nifty little tool I found at Wal-Mart called a Bead Reamer.. And it works great at making the holes bigger in nearly every type of bead. The only problem is that it is time consuming and can wear your hands out. The charm I made using shrinkie dinks.



This one is one of my favorites. I made myself one with pink beads like this before. Again I had to use the Bead Reaming tool to make the holes bigger.



This one is simple but really cute. I just alternated the strands to weave the different colors. And just used small pony beads.

You might even be able to find cotton cord that you could use. They usually have them in several different colors. They are some cool techniques I've learned to do with hemp....this is just a quick pic not sure if you know how to do this one or not.

Those earrings are super cute! I have a hemp necklace with a cherry charm. Your earrings and my necklace would go great together!!!!


I can't tell from your pic if those are actual charms or not....Either way I love it.
