12  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / X'mas ornament #2 on: December 16, 2005 03:13:02 AM
Finally I was done with procrastination & wrote up the description in English just before deadline, so I made my entry to the Christmas Jewelry Making Contest on wire-sculpture.com with the tiny wreath I made before  Grin.  Then I can have a try at some great stuff posted by other contestants! Hohoho!!

I was immediately in love with a star ornament, Fancy Funky Star by Ms Andrea Adams.  This is her contest entry:

This is my humble imitation:

I think I didn't quite strike the balance.  Too many beads on the frame and too little at the middle... Anyway, thought I'd just share.

Thanks for looking, and merry x'mas!

I knew I had to try this when I saw the tutorial on Beads Mania. Finally got my hands on some flat beads and this is my version:

Thanks for looking. My eyes got very tired after working with the seed beads hidden under the petals. Salute to all who work with seed beads a lot.  I've seen many awesome and complicated pieces on Craftster, but I really had no idea about the difficulty before I tried to use seed beads!

15  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / More translucent beads!! (updated 12/12) on: December 05, 2005 12:04:09 AM
I returned to the shop where I got the translucent beads for the white necklace I posted before, and was excited to find out they had those in black (and many other colors). Of course I snapped up some of those, and this is what I came up with:

The pic didn't do the beads justice, so here's a close-up shot:

12/12 EDIT: I did't know why, but the beads didn't align smoothly along the string when I wore this necklace.  So I've re-strung it with tiny beads between the black beads:

Now it was lengthened from 18 inch to 20 inch.

I also found some white ones in potato shape, and made a bracelet to match my white necklace.

Thanks for looking!

Pardon the grainy pic. Great for practicing how to do T-pins  Grin and it used up some old beads in my box which I'm sure aged >10yrs...

Thanks for looking.

20  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / 2 necklaces: black & white on: October 21, 2005 08:58:22 AM

Simple one made with some white translucent beads (they have a sheen, somewhat look like mother of pearl).  I made this for my legion of black shirts...

I saw a similar black necklace in a Japanese mag, and was immediately in the "wow I must have this!" mode.  Can't wait to wear it with a turtleneck or shirt in the winter!

I also made the clasp to try wire wrapping, but the outcome is kind of uneven >_<  May replace it with a piece of ribbon later...

Thanks for looking!
