Making 'Beady' whoopee and a very Merry Christmas !

Hello everyone, Such a hectic time of year.....I've managed to squeeze in this little post ! I'm still on my 'beady buzz' learning curve and have taught myself to BEAD CROCHET !  Have you ever tried to learn something and you just cannot get it.......
Well that has been me for the last fortnight....but EURIKA, all of a sudden it all fell into place and I finally had a glorious victory..........These are the fruits of my labours...........................

Now all i have to do is measure a few wrists, so that I can finish these lovely, spiral beady bracelets !!!
I also would like to bring to your attention these lovely readables that have  inspired me lately.................

These are beaded 3d shapes that are so original and make the most beautiful jewelry.........these are my ultimate goal, if I can get my head around the instructions !!!!
Also I found this wonderful magazine from 'BEAD AND BUTTON,

There are so many projects that I would love to try.......I think 2013 is going to be an amazingly creative year for me !!!
Have a great week leading up to Christmas....will try and do another post before the 25th dec and I'll leave you with a lovely pic of two of the people that mean the world to me............................xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx


  1. Hello this is what you have been up to?
    Well for once I can tell you I have made a couple of things using POYOTE stitch and was taught my my friend Val....I dont find beading easy at all so would never take it up as a hobby but my friend did a little workshop at my house with four other friends...
    I shall look forward to seeing your wonderful creations in 2013

    Hugs Anne
