As a beader, I am constantly looking for new projects to try my hands on! :)

You see, I have this habit of buying ALL and ANY book or magazine on beading and crafts. So occasionally, I peruse these materials and try my hands on some of the projects. Most of the time, the designers publish the tutorials, which makes learning the art very easy (if you understand the basics).

I have some copies of BEADWORK Magazine. It is customary for this magazine to publish some beading projects. I ALWAYS attempt these published projects (and sometimes I add my touch) Sometime ago, I attempted making my own version of Shelley Nybakke's GOLDEN-EDGED RUFFLES which was published in the December 2007/January 2008 edition of the Beadwork Magazine.

Here are some of the necklaces I've made following the instruction as published by Shelley Nybakke.

I say a BIG THANK YOU to Shelley Nybakke for making this tutorial available.

Thanks for viewing!

Golden Cellini

Cellini Spirals. Always beautiful to behold. I recently made this Golden Cellini necklace.  Like all other projects, I'd say it turned out right. :)

The earrings however were like little cup cakes!

WoW! It's being ages!

I miss this place. I think I should revamp this blog and inject some life into it again! Let me clear the cobwebs  and clean up the page . . .

Meanwhile here is something for you!

Recently, a friend of mine asked me to make a necklace for her. The colour code was blue.

She wanted the necklace to be ready on time. Now that was a problem for me because, I am a weekend beader. Yes, I use most of my weekends to bead! Well, I was determined to deliver on time! So, I set out to work . . .

This was the first thing I made. The plan was to make enough to go round a neck. Somehow, I was not satisfied.

Then I made these pendants. I considered it "wrong" for the occasion.

Finally, I made this mini encapsuled necklace with the matching earrings!

My First Cellini!

This is my first Cellini Bracelet!

I wish I could write a story about this bracelet. I intend to do a matching necklace and maybe one small earring :)

Happy Beading!

Black and White!

My professional career enjoins that I wear dark (mostly black). As a result, most of my suits and other office wears are BLACK! LOL!

I wanted to have a piece of jewelry that I could wear with 'almost' any attire. This prompted me to make a black and white beaded bracelet. After I made the first one, I wore it for a few days and thereafter, it changed ownership!

I had to replace it ASAP. So, I made this one for myself!

This is the first of my "re-post". Yes, I had posted this picture on the previous blog.

During the last elections in Nigeria (April 2011) there was a very long break which coincided with the Easter holiday. I spent that weekend doing what I love doing - creating some crafts and jewelries. One of such was this set I made. I was so excited at the final result...

I called it "Nested". This is because each one is made like a nest with eggs in it!
