11  Lost in an enchanted forest in Beads: Completed Projects by Cayca on: November 18, 2008 11:47:34 PM
Winter came to my town. It's not only cold but gray and foggy too. Weather like this makes me think of spring. Of warm sun on my cheeks, of green trees in my back yard and plants on my balcony. This bracelet was inspired by my childhood memories. By my love for fairy tales, Celtic legends and Irish music. By The Tenth Kingdom, The Magical Legend of the Leprechauns and other Hallmarks lovely fantasies.

12  Autumn Night in Beads: Completed Projects by Cayca on: November 12, 2008 09:53:13 AM
This was my first try at two stitches - St. Petersburg an tubular herringbone.

I have used black seeds size 10 and metallic purple seeds size 8 (I guess).

Comments please.

Here comes the black one. Finally.

Faceted Czech 4 and 5 mm beads and shiny black hex beads give a lot of sparkle to this one.

14  Clarity Choker and Cuff in Beads: Completed Projects by Cayca on: September 17, 2008 11:40:50 PM
This is what I've made for my Gorgeous Choker Swap partner, Clarity.

You can check the swap gallery too.

I enjoyed making the choker. That's because right from the start I had rather good idea of what I wanted to make. I wanted it to be unique, special, gothy and elegant.

So I started here.

Celtic Knot Earrings

These are the first beadwoven earrings I made using my own pattern. I thought that they'd look great as a "spine" of my choker, and they could easily be transformed into bracelet or cuff.

See for yourself if I was right Wink

Made of two sizes of black Czech seed beads, the necklace was supposed to fit Clarity's neck perfectly, falling down to her collarbone.

The cuff should also fit snugly but not to tight so it could cover her wrist and fall below it and over her hand.

Now I only have to think of how to transform the cuff into handflower.

Here's an action shot. No make up, and hair tied in a pony tail, but you can see choker, cuff and earrings.

Yeeey. I've finally received my package from Clarity.

Unfortunately my camera didn't like me today and didn't want to make any sharp action shots even with macro mode on. But you can see what I've got and tomorrow I'm going to ask my best mate who is a photographer to take some nice photos of me wearing these lovelies.

And these lovelies are a beautiful lacy choker with hematite gray seeds and matte black faceted beads. It is very soft (I'm used to beads and nylon from the first choker I've made pinching my neck) and I've already sorted out several outfits I'm going to make this choker part of.
Then there is lovely black beaded wire cuff, and I love those dangly rows of beads.
Clarity is a darling for making me my own tiny bat earrings after I commented on the choker Fleur Delicious made for Maehem.

And she even added some pretty beads because she knows how hard it is for me to find beads in Belgrade, and a girl like me can never have too much of red and black beads.

So thank you, Clarity, very much.

17  Celtic Knot Earrings in Beads: Completed Projects by Cayca on: August 15, 2008 08:52:09 AM
I wanted to make something Celtic-like so I came up with this design for earrings that can easily be transformed into pendant, necklace, bracelet, cuff or a choker (Clarity knows this best  Wink ). These is also my first authentic design or, at least, I haven't seen anything similar on the internet. I even sold the first two pairs I made. I've never made jewelry for sale - everything I made was either for myself or for a present.

Here is a better pic so you can see what necklace really looks like.

Perhaps you could try something like this.

Will you post your variation(s)? I'd love to see what others will make from that pattern.

This is what red one looks when it's not around my neck. I'll have to take it apart though. I've made the loop too small for the bead I used for closure and I'll break all my nails if I want to wear it.
