22  New chokers in Beads: Completed Projects by Cayca on: June 10, 2008 01:40:14 AM
I've found great pattern on one Czech site and just had to use it to make a choker. Well, two chokers. Then I found out that the tutorial for choker similar to my garnet one was published in Crea con abalorios magazine.

This one is made with three shades (unintentionally) of 4 and 6 mm Czech faceted beads and size 10 seeds. Ball and loop clasp - 6 mm bead used for ball.

The red one is made with 6x4 mm Czech glass faceted beads (first two rows), 4 mm faceted beads (three rows), medium sized drops and size 10 seed beads. Murano red and gold bead used for ball side of the clasp.

Half done.

When I first tried to make this necklace I had to alter the pattern a bit because it wasn't symmetrical. It turned out that the thread path on the picture I posted is the same I used so I know this one works just fine.

I have made three more necklaces and three pairs of earrings.

Czech crystals, Czech glass drops, black bugles and seed beads - these are made to match the first necklace I've made.

Light blue bugles and blue seeds - these remind me of warm distant seas and shells

Dark purple seeds and silver lined mauve hex bugles  -I've made a necklace too, but the photo didn't turn out well

Principessa Vespa (Wasp princess or Princess Vespa - remember the movie Spaceballs) - silver lined yellow seeds, black seeds and bugles

I find this better thread path than the one in the tutorial xcaret posted so I thought I should share it with you all.

25  Obsessed with Art Deco in Beads: Completed Projects by Cayca on: February 14, 2008 01:14:28 AM
So I had these metal/glass findings that I didn't know how to use. I wanted to put them between yellow pearls or round hematite beads but I could only use round ones, ant that pendant would stay unused. And then, as if by Providence, I bought two large czech crystals for the lowest part of these earrings. Of course, the earrings were too heavy to wear, so I took the largest beads off and decided to make a necklace. So here it is. A friend of mine (the first person to see it) said that it looks very artdecoish. You cant see, but the clasp is authentic 20's jewelry clasp with a tiny zircon, and I'm sorry that it can't actually be seen when I wear necklace.

Thanks, PixieSkull. I still don't know what to do with the rest of those silver lined bugles but these seem to be cleverly used  Smiley

And here is the latest one.

Thanks for comments. I'm glad you like them. Larger beads (drops and prisms) are Czech glass, and seed, bugle and hex beads are Turkish so they vary a bit in size and shape.
And here is the first one I made - bugles and size 8 seeds.

Thanks to xcaret and Feast Your Eyes who provided tutorial I've finally got the chance to make these. I had to alter the original pattern a bit and I'm quite pleased with how my chokers turned out. I'm not as pleased with my photos (damned phone camera). Black and silver-black necklace have extender chain so I can wear necklace high or low on the neck.

Black seeds, bugles and drops.

Clear silver lined seeds, black hex and pentagonal prisms.

Clear silver lined seeds, bugles and clear drops (I hate these silver lined bugles, but the necklace looks o.k. to me).

Tutorial can be found here.

29  Black handflower in Beads: Completed Projects by Cayca on: September 20, 2007 07:40:06 AM
I have made this handflower with black hex beads and larger czech crystal beads (I have no idea what size are they) on clear fishing line (and I'm proud of it  Wink). This is the first more complex beading project I've made. I apologize for poor picture quality.

Instructions for this lovely bracelet can be found here. Since I've used hex instead of regular seed beads I had to make some minor changes to the pattern given here.

30  Scrap metal earrings in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Cayca on: July 15, 2007 02:36:45 AM
I believe these were the first earrings I ever made. It was more than seven or eight years ago. I made them out of tin stripes from a ledger and some broken guitar wires. I wore them throughout my punk faze.

These I made right after I entered high school. I made them out of aluminum wire left over from a technical education class kit. I still wear them often because they are so dangly and I just loooove the sound of metal.
