Sneak Peek - Terra

Freshly from my beading tray.
It was almost dusty!!! The tray. Not the bracelet.
Now it's back in use again.

PS: The name Terra has nothing to do with the almost-dust on my tray. Not consciously anyway...

Going to try a third colour too, I need to take photos for the tutorial.

Maybe black-blue? Hm. I have to go through my Tila box...

Twin Flowers


Greetings from brighter side of the life!
Our complicated life started to go to the right direction and I enjoy my extra time I can spend with beading.

My journey with twin beads continues. I'm having lots of fun with these unusual two hole beads and every project leads to even more ideas. And I'm happy to try them all...

The tutorial for the Twin Flowers bracelet is now available on Etsy:

Simple Spark

Found new addiction, I'm doing Cubic Right Angle Weave day and night. And in between whatever it's called. Loving it.

Also, as you may noticed my listing images changed and they are not alone. I also gave a face lift to my PDFs. They will be super printer friendly from now on. The Hidden Pebbles Bangle already got the new PDF and as my time allows I will change the PDF for all my tutorials. I think the new designs (photo and the pdf) are really pretty and can't wait to get some feedback on them from you, guys.

From tomorrow I'm working on the tutorial for Simple Spark and I also have an ongoing project which is called the "Ultimate Peyote Guide" and I hope to finish that one this week too.

Have great day, bead a lot and enjoy the super spring weather. We had 20+ Celsius here in Essex, soooo love the sunshine :)

Beading again


After a super long (4 months) break I finally have found the time to bead again. 
Our life is upside down since December and the last year was pretty tough anyway.

Some of you probably know that my girl was diagnosed with autism about a year ago and after that moment everything started to go sideway big time. We tried everything to find her a nursery or a school where she can get the right development and being looked after during the day (she is 5 years old) but there was none.

After 1 year of strugle  we were techniquly forced to move back to the UK because the lack of development and care in my country. We moved in January and the last 2 months we were filling papers, seeing doctors, and organising interviews to find her the right place where she gets the right development and education. She is a very  special and loving little girl who needs help and we were willing to do anything to get it for her.
It was (is) a very stressful period in our life but I'm happy to say it's worth the effort: Babe will start in her school on the 16th of April. I couldn't be happier :)

***
Now that our life started to be a little bet more predictable and we have filled most of the forms and seen most of the professionals I finally found some time to bead.

This bangle is a super fast and simple piece, made with cubic right angle weave and really versatile.
 I finished two colour variation so far, a green  ...

... and a white and also working on a black with colourful pattern in it. It only takes a few hours to bead up and very comfortable to wear.
I kind of like it. It's noticeable for sure, not for shy girls...

Working on the tutorial, the drawings are done, hope to finish the instructions in the next 2 days and will list it for sale as soon as I'm done :)
