Lacing beading necklace


 

I was very found of lacing style all my youth and I considered the ones are working it “un reachable” in skills and art.

Few month ago a theme of a challenge in Etsy Beadweaver’s forum was “Nautical” inspiration.

I chose to create “The Birth of Venus” using the lacing beading technique.

Using different tones of blue, green, turquoise and white i created the foam and the weaves of the sea.

As a pendant i used a shell where from the goodness is going to be born.

Each part of the lacing is a small flower around a white bead of coral.

I work for days to design and bead this necklace but i am very found with the result.

Available for selling in the shop.

Nests in the tree of life


I made this necklace for the first challenge from 2012 on Etsy Beadweavers’s. The February theme is “Nest” so i created a ” Tree of life” by encased angelite beads and strips of seed beads woven in herringbone technique. I assembled the strips as branches and inserted some small angelite beads as knots in the trunk. In between the branches I “plated” the nests. 9 angelite beads encased in seed beads. The laces and the toggle are made in the same manner. The toggle has a decoration as a small nest “hanging” in the back. The necklace cover the chest and is nice to be worn directly against the skin or over a uni color pullover or shirt.

Working hours: 56

Materials used: angelite beads, seed beads
