12  Beadwoven Pietersite Bangle bracelet in Beads: Completed Projects by beaderjojo on: September 11, 2009 07:47:29 AM
I've been experimenting a bit with right angle weave, and cross needle weaving. Using 2 needles to do anything was a bit challenging at first, but now I seem to have the hang of it. It makes beading easier and works up faster, IMO anyways.
This "almost chunky" bracelet was woven with size 3/o toho seed beads, and finished off with small pietersite nuggets. Pietersite is such a pretty stone - one of my favorites.

13  3D Beadwoven Tetris Necklaces in Beads: Completed Projects by beaderjojo on: June 25, 2009 09:39:08 AM
These little guys have been in the making for a while now - on and off for the past 6 months or so. I really wanted to show each one off as soon as I was done with it, but I felt it would be best to "release" them as a set.
This idea has been in the making (in my head) for YEARS now...I just didn't know how I was going to pull it off until I started working with right-angle-weave, the perfect stitch for this geometric endeavor. It wasn't until I started weaving (in size 11 toho beads) that I fully understood what an endeavor it would be. This truly was a labor of love...the entire set together took me approximately 40 hours! Worth the time, though. They are all structurally sound - these babies are not hollow. They are built up layer by layer - you can't really SEE the beads woven in the center, but they are there...and that what makes the piece strong and able to hold its shape.
Because I really wanted the shapes to be the total eye catcher, I finished these necklaces off by stringing them on illusion cord - so that the shape appears to be "floating" on your neck.

14  Extra life anyone? (Now with pattern) in Beads: Completed Projects by beaderjojo on: March 12, 2009 06:04:51 AM
I managed to get a picture of this 1UP Mario mushroom before giving to my lil' sister. She wanted a key chain. I put it on a swivel clasp, so she can clip it on her shoe, phone, or wear it on a chain, too. It was beaded with delica beads in peyote stitch.
I'd love to bead up a fireball flower sometime. So much to do...

15  "Circle gets the Square" - bellydance, costume, festival necklace in Beads: Completed Projects by beaderjojo on: September 18, 2008 11:11:13 AM
I made this piece for the a monthly challenge...the theme this month being "Complimentary Contradictions".
I used a bunch of different types of beads. Swarovski glass pearls, delica seed beads, toho seed beads, czech firepolished beads, swarovski crystals squares and one circle crystal for the clasp. I put a lot of energy into making my hands do what I saw in my head, and I'm quite pleased with the result.

16  Beaded freeform bracelet with paula shell cabochon in Beads: Completed Projects by beaderjojo on: July 10, 2008 07:58:46 AM
This is my first ever entry into the a Monthy challenge - the theme is "A Midsummer Nights Dream"

I took this as an opportunity to use up some of those blue beads that seem to be more abundant than any other color of bead I have.
It was a lot of fun making this bracelet...freeform is just picking up the needle and seeing what happens!
I used about 16 different colors, including delica seed beads, toho seed beads, swarovski crystals, bugle beads, and a few glass beads. A beaded toggle clasp blends seamlessly into the design, and the focal cabochon is an abalone/paula shell, encased in woven seed beads.

Thought you all might enjoy some "action shots" from the day:
My dress was made by a friend, Brianne, who owns Twilight Dance Designs. She did an amazing job.

I posted my hubby-to-be's wedding day labradorite necklace a bit earlier, and I finished mine last night! It's woven with delica seed beads, toho seed beads, and different sizes of swarovski glass pearls, and the clasp is mother of pearl.

Now on to my sister's...

19  Labradorite/Hematite necklace for my groom in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by beaderjojo on: May 15, 2008 06:22:58 AM
This past Saturday my fiance went out to get stuff at Home Depot, at which time I took the opportunity to make his wedding day necklace. He knew that I was going to be making one for him. When he came home and I told him it was all done, he wanted to see it. So I said, "Ok hon, just guess what 2 stones I used in it and you can see it today, otherwise you're waiting till the day", thinking he'll NEVER guess both the stones on the first try.
RIGHT-a-friggin way he blurts out labradorite. I didn't say yes or no (even though he was spot on)...and then about a minute later he says hematite. I had to show it to him.
Hopefully I'll be showing off MY necklace soon...I'm almost done with it.

Here's his necklace:

Your bottles are lovely and very original. I love the mario mushroom and the cow one...it made me giggle out loud (in a good way, of course).

Here are a few beaded bottles I have done...I tend to do more netting than completely covering the bottle. But alas, here they are:
