Experiments!

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!

Nested!

Hello!

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!

A Little Introduction!


This blog was "created" strictly to showcase my beadworks and other crafts!

I am an avid beader. I enjoy making things with beads. As a result of my love for beaded crafts and all forms of beadwork I joined several sites and of course I learnt a lot! That is one big advantage of the Internet! :)

When I first opened this blog, my intention was to do so under a different 'web' identity. Alas! I could not continue with the dual personality. As a result, I closed the blog (temporarily). Now, after serious consideration, I have decided to reopen the blog...

I will use this blog to display some of my beaded projects!

Welcome to my beading room!
