I've been designing beaded jewelry for about 8 years. My initial attempts at designing were to make beautiful jewelry with semi-precious (healing) stones. The beads kind of took over my life and I'm not particular what I use to design with as long as it is a high quality bead.
I can't say I have a favorite stitch or type of bead, but lately I've been experimenting with the new Twin beads and Super Duos.
Next on my to-do list is design some items with Cubic Right Angle Weave with the Twins. It works in my head, now to put thread and beads to it.
Beautiful Southwest type design bracelet features an Ojo in the center flanked on either side by the sun and lightening symbols. The matching earrings are Ojo only.
Bracelet pattern is for a 6 inch long bracelet without the clasp (worked in delicas)by 2 inches wide. Add more rows on each end for a longer bracelet.
Bracelet pattern includes picture of the finished product, numbered graph, toggle pattern and color legend. There are no stitch instructions for the bracelet. You must be able to increase and decrease. Toggle pattern includes numbered graph, color legend, word chart and step by step instructions how to assemble the toggle and attach it to the bracelet .
Big, bold and beautiful Ojo Earrings match the Ojo bracelet. The earring pattern includes pictures of the finished product, numbered graph and color legend. As with the bracelet there are no stitch instructions given for the earrings, but there are step by step illustrated instructions for attaching the ear wire and adding the fringe or alternate finish. Two fringe options and an alternate finish are given in the pattern.
Earrings are one inch wide by 3.5 inches with fringe, 2.75 inches with alternate finish.
Price of this set represents 25% savings over buying the two patterns seperately.
Approximate Finished size:
delica size 11, bugle beads and 4mm rounds optional for fringe
