12  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Puffy Beaded Heart Ring Tutorial: Updated Now with Pendant instructions Pg 2 on: February 15, 2012 07:06:24 PM
I tried to get this tutorial done before Valentines Day but I didn't have the time to make it. I have made beaded heart pendants before and always wanted a matching ring. So I have been trying to figure out away to make a beaded heart ring. I experimented for days adding beads and taking beads away. Trying to get the perfect heart shape small enough for a ring. First I made it with 3mm bicones then decided to try different kinds of beads because I know that some of you don't have 3mm bicones. I have finally figured out away to make it and I wanted to share how I made it.
Here is the tutorial link to make this ring. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gDQgyN0xqHg

13  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Hugs and Kisses Beaded Bracelet Tutorial Link(img heavy) on: February 05, 2012 06:44:09 PM
This bracelet tutorial matched the ring tutorial that I posted last week. The ring tutorial can be found here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YZQ25T-LfNw&feature=channel_video_title
 I used my favorite colors to make this bracelet and now I have to make the matching ring. If you can make the ring then you can make this bracelet. If you haven't done much beading then I suggest you make the ring first. After I made the video I decided to change the lobster clasp to a toggle. I hope everyone enjoys this tutorial it took three hours to make the tutorial and eight hours to upload it to youtube. I was so impatient. Please tell me if you like the tutorial or if you made the ring or bracelet I would love to hear from you guys.

14  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Hugs and Kisses Beaded Ring Tutorial on: January 25, 2012 02:06:17 PM
I'm so excited I am Craftster's best of 2011. Smiley Alright back to what I came here for this is my newest video tutorial.

15  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Beaded Ball Earrings Tutorial Link on: January 13, 2012 07:36:34 PM
This is my newest youtube tutorial. I have been working hard on these videos so I hope you guys like them. The beaded balls are easier to make than they look. If you are new to beading it shouldn't be to hard for you. I used 3mm faux pearls in my earrings and 6 aught seedbeads in my necklace. You can experiment with different size beads. Use 6mm beads to make a pendant and smaller beads for a matching bracelet and earrings. If you have bicone crystals they would look amazing in this beaded ball. Well I think I gave enough ideas here is the link to my video/channel. Please tell me what you think.

16  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Triple Wrap Ball Chain Bracelet on: January 09, 2012 05:58:25 PM
After LimeRiot posted her amazing, "Plumbing Chain wrap bracelets." Thank you LimeRiot! I just had to try it. I didn't have leather cord so I just used what I had in my stash. I don't know the name of this cord it isn't hemp so if anyone does please tell me. As I started making it began twisting so I kept on going thinking it would stop but it didn't. I think it twisted because I didn't use leather cord. Anyways I started knotting around the ball chain and it worked.  I did use the larger ball chain in this bracelet. I am very pleased with how it turned out.

17  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Beaded Bead Necklace Tutorial on: January 02, 2012 07:18:59 PM
I love making these beaded beads. They are simple to make and don't cost much. I used a 9mm bead for my smallest beaded bead. A 12mm bead for my medium size beaded bead. A 16mm bead for my large beaded bead. You don't have to use wooden beads like I did you can use plastic or glass beads.Experiment with this design and try other different sizes too. I made a oval 15mm beaded bead with the same amount of beads as the 12mm round bead. Here is a link to my video tutorial on how to make them.

Material list:
2ft. of 10lb. or 8lb. test Fishline per bead
11/0 seedbeads
11/0 hex cut seedbeads
9mm round beads
12mm round beads or 15mm oval beads
16mm round beads

This is the same technique as the other one. In this beaded bead I just criss crossed at the seedbead. Then picked up a 11\0 on each string. Then pick up one more seedbead and criss cross again. Then string your hex cut seedbeads.

This picture shows the paths to take.
18  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Button Macrame Bracelets on: December 27, 2011 07:30:35 PM
I made four of these bracelets as Christmas presents. But sadly I only have pictures of two bracelets. I used buttons with shanks to make both of them. The black one has a metal button, magnetic beads, metal beads, and 6/0 seedbeads. I have to admit I had a hard time parting with the black one I will miss it. Cry Tell me which one you think is better.

20  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Wire Wrapped Earrings on: December 04, 2011 08:23:20 PM
I've had these once gold plain looking earrings for awhile. I was going to take the beads off and throw them away. But then I got the idea to wrap them with wire and seedbeads. For some reason my jewelry looks terrible with white back grounds. I have been taking pictures on a banana tree leaf and the pictures have been vibrant and crystal clear.
In this picture you can see the details.
Here is the pair together.

This is what they use to look like.
