Those are two of my new projects

This one is "learn how to be patient project".
 I was inspired by people hire that where macking they own beads from Sculley and wood . I don't have much experience in sculpturing or wood working so i decided to learn  how to mack Cellini spiral and made 6  beads in that technique.  Then I strung them with other beads. I felt as it it took fore ever to get firs bead done but once you get it it goes really easy.
 The idea of macking beads in different variations of peyote stitch is not mine, it comes from http://www.angelfire.com/tx3/janiesbeads/index.html (weary inspiring webpage that everyone should tack look at Grin)

That is necklace it self

those are closeups of beads. As you can see it was it was hard to take a good picture of them. I hope you get a general idea.


This is my 'learn how to be fast project" I was going out and needed something new to weare. I made that bracelet in 30 minutes. it is modification of bracelet from http://www.beadsmania.com/user/recipe/index.html

hope you enjoy it.

Your projects are always so pretty. The beads that you made are impressive; I can't get the hang of peyote. And I want your 30 minute bracelet! Cheesy

Thanks a lot fore all the nice words.

I don't read Japanese fonts, when I find interesting page I just click on every place with link  Grin  Once you find write thing instructions are very easy to follow because most of them are in pictures.
those are direct links to pictures from tutorial.

I modified that pattern a little bit.

I will try to post direct links to pages with recipes I'm not sure if it will work and fore how long those links will be wailled (they can change after upgrade) (I don't know much about programing and that page has got frames and that scares me Grin).
Not all of patterns are with pictures (usually old patterns on 1 page of each category are written) so don't get discourage, Good lack.

If you look at patterns very carefully you can find that there are couple of techniques and then everything depends from proportions of the beads and how you use colours. http://www.homestead.com/eaglespirituk/BeadWorkTutorials.html that page is example of that.
