So far, I have had enormous trouble trying to add more than one photo to a post. Possibly coz I do it from my phone – I don’t know. But I am going to give it another try.
First up is an almost complete ring I have been making for myself. I like big rings and once I had beaded around this heamatite cabochon, it just had to become a ring 🙂
The band……well…..that was an adventure!! Size 11 seed beads – check. Design, right angle weave – check. Elastic fine enough to make several passes through each bead? Nooooo!!!
So the search began. I ended up using Gossamer Floss, which is not easy to locate in the UK. But, I had to split it to make it fine enough for what it had to do. It worked. It was just a real faff!!
Anyway….the cab is backed with soft black leather and I just need to stitch the other end in….and voila!!
Next up are some gorgous vintage rivoli in medium vitrail colour/effect. I love vintage stuff!! And I have quite a good collection so far. Although I am always on the look out for more 🙂
These are teeny. 7mm. I have two plans for them. One is setting them into a vintage multi loop bracelet clasp with holes made for rivoli. The other is to bezel around them with size 15 seed beads to make earrings. Fiddly work, but worth a go.
My photos aren’t brilliant, I know! In fact, most are poor. I can only apologise. I am not a natural photographer.
