31  learning how to be patient, learning how to be quick in Beads: Completed Projects by olenka on: August 09, 2005 11:14:32 PM

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.

32  2 table runners 2 lace motives (pic heavy) in Crochet: Completed Projects by olenka on: August 07, 2005 01:24:22 AM

I'm new to this part of the board because till 2 weeks a go I was mostly sawing and beading. So hire are my creations.

That is first thing I have made. I took pattern from magazine. It is done from 4 pieces that have 3D Irish rose in the middle. (you unfortunately cant see it in the picture  Roll Eyes )

I made that one fore my grandmother. Pattern also comes from magazine.

That is lace trim i will soon add to blouse (when I stop crocheting and tack out my sawing machine that is)

and this is piece of lace that I made just to check if I can figure out that pattern.

33  Re: GOLD NECKLACE now with tutorial in Beads: Completed Projects by olenka on: July 10, 2005 09:17:55 AM

this is necklaces I made for my friend , as a present for summer party season. I did small alterations to your original pattern so I can add those long beads and to give it more curved shape. She liked it a lot Cheesy and that made me weary happy. It took almost 5h to complite so I have to work on speed of my beading. It is plane black so not weary challenging.

Fore me finding beads is one of greatest challenges in beading. Two months ago, first Rayher store was opened in my town, and there is one on-line store that is selling beads.
 Fore a long time I was hunting for beads in sowing splay stores and on flee markets choice was limited.  But the good side of it is that It was not weary inexpensive hobby, now I got spoiled and I haw a lots of beads and I don't knew what to do with them Cheesy because weary often I look at them and think that they are to pretty to use on my present level of skills, I must stop doing that because it is a waste to just keep them in drawer.

34  beaders block in Beads: Completed Projects by olenka on: July 07, 2005 12:39:48 AM
Dunning school yare I was telling to my self that when vacations will start I will finally have time fore all that beading I wanted to do. Unfortunately now when I have time I'm suffering from huge beaders block.
I'm posting 4 things I have made when I didn't have time for beading  Cheesy

Did you ever wonder how difficult is to mack picture of your own feet Wink. my friend asked me to mack bare feet sandal fore her and hire it is.

Hire are 2 rings I'm working on tutorial for the..

And pair of dingle earrings, not very ambitious color wise but that was my first project that required needle and thread.

When I saw tutorial you posted i thought to my self "I have to try it".
 This is what I came up so far Cheesy.

 I wanted to mack necklace shorter than yours that goes just around neck and is build just out of those decorative shapes. Unfortunately  necklace doesn't have curve that is needed for it to lay properly. I was a little bet disappointing, that is why i haven't finish it jet, but I'm planing to continue and mack a chocker out of it. I think it has wrong shape because beads in my country are not sold with sizes ore any measurements (and are sometimes weary un even) and beads I used where in wrong proportions.
Thanks once again for posting that tutorial, I just love that design and I will give it a nother go with deferent beads.

36  olenka what have you done ? in Beads: Completed Projects by olenka on: June 19, 2005 11:34:17 PM
Those are my new creations. My camera have had a bat day I hope I will not spoil the effect completely.
That is pedant.

That is bracelet it is weary much a free form bracelet because I used pattern designed fore size 11 beads and my beads were 4mm. so i just altered the pattern as I was going a long.

That is sample earing  (that is why there is only one) I have done a pair of earrings like that  for my friend

And that is front of a ring I'm weary proud of it because I figured the pattern from a picture I found on-line.

37  bobbin case necklace in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by olenka on: June 19, 2005 11:02:25 PM

That was so easy that I don't even know if it is worth pasting but I need to brag.
 I found vintage bobbin case that was completely cowered with rust but i liked the shape of it. All I had to do was remove rust and thread the bobbin case on ribbon.
It id double sided

and hire you can see how it was threaded on the ribbon.
