My posts are very biased towards running and jewellery at the moment. This simply reflects the focus of my life at the moment. Having said that, however, today sees the very first session of a VERY exciting project (hint it involves the Chelsea Flower show!!!) I shall be sharing more very soon.
Back to jewellery and some more excitement, I have made up my very first beading pattern, one that I am really chuffed with.
They are fairly easy to make and I shall attempt to try to explain.
You will need:
Twin beads, 1 size 8 seed bead, size 11 seed beads, beading thread and a beading needle.
You now finish off and you have a ring. The trickiest bit is the band. When you join the second end to the ring in step 9 you need to ensure that you are not twisting the band, it needs to be on the same side as where you started.
I pulled the second ring a bit tight which has distorted it a bit so be careful! I would love to see if you make any. 🙂
PS: I am feeling rather chuffed as one of the ‘professional beaders’ from Spoilt Rotten Beads (where I also write the blog) has had a go at making my own very little humble pattern. See here. Also, I have written a slightly different version of the instructions on the blog over there, which also has links to the components that you need should you wish to have a go yourself. 🙂
