1  Re: Few projects in Beads: Completed Projects by decarillion on: October 26, 2008 02:16:36 PM

I don't think I've posted this previously. It's also from Bead and Button (I love that mag). I like to follow patterns for awhile, then eventually, I will deviate or improvise. I'm just not really good at thinking up patterns on my own.

I did this is pearl white and AB crystal bicones, too. Will post a pic if I can find the bracelet Tongue

2  Few projects in Beads: Completed Projects by decarillion on: October 26, 2008 02:13:53 PM

This started out as the metal bangle from Bead and Button some issues back but turned out rather different, entirely LOL. I used this same pattern as the starting point for the Delta bangle that I posted pix of, earlier in the year.

My pix aren't great but there are tiny bronze hexcuts that aren't obvious, in person. However, when the light hits the bracelet, they glitter. I used gunmetal metal beads on this as well as silver-lined crystals.

4  Faux Jabot in Beads: Completed Projects by decarillion on: March 20, 2008 09:52:37 AM
This is from the February 2005 issue of Bead and Button. I love it...it sparkles like mad. What I am disappointed in are the fringes. They simply do not hang/lay straight. I tried unwaxed Fireline and waxed Fireline; I tried stretching it unwaxed, then waxing it; I tried stretching it and using it with no wax. Bah! I wonder if Nymo would make the difference (although my beloved husband pointed out that, in the mag, her fringe didn't exactly hang straight, either LOL)

Anyway, it's Swarovski bicones, silver lined clear triangles, silver lined dark grey and light grey seed beads. I'm trying to find a way to get a very close-up pic that isn't blurry so you can see detail. If I get that done, I'll add it to this thread.

This is just freeform. I like it but I envisioned more and didn't know how to get from vision to production so I wound up with this LOL

6  Delta bracelet in Beads: Completed Projects by decarillion on: January 03, 2008 11:40:23 AM
Using the pattern for the metal bead bangle in a recent Bead and Button, I altered the pattern some to come up with this bracelet. For those that don't know, this is a sorority comprised of mostly educators, IIRC. At any rate, it's a gift for one of the teachers that works for me. Unfortunately, I made it too big for her so I am now in the process of adding another layer of the mesh INSIDE the bracelet. I will go halfway around and let her try it on again.

The white banding you see to the left and right goes all the way around the back of the bracelet. It is the same row as the lettering.

I replaced some of the pix above with slightly better ones. Here's another one:

I seriously need a crash course in photography. All the closeups I took came out very blurry Sad Will keep experimenting, though! This started out as one of the patterns from Bead and Button but didn't quite end up that way LOL

10  Re: Flower Floor Rug Pattern???? in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by decarillion on: July 01, 2007 02:08:04 PM
I've made the totebag of that pattern--it's very cute!
There is another flower, though, on another site that actually comes out nicer than the SugarnCream ones...will try to remember/find it.

BUT, this flower is perfect, if you can enlarge it!

It's from Bernat's site, the Flower Power Bedspread (available for free)
