I recently learn how to stitch beaded beads and this set was the result of my first attempt. I created several peyote tubes in three different sizes using pearl colored seed beads (smallest for the earring – largest for the necklace.

I created this bracelet using a simple bead weaving technique with the combination of Swarovski crystal beads in garnet, citrine, and peridot colors.

A dear friend gave me some hematite cabochons. Since I love to combine materials, I started looking for different once. I combined the hematite cabs with Swarovski pearl beads, freshwater pearls, different colors Miyuki seed beads, treasure beads, silver colored rings and spacers. I finished it all with three-way silver locker clasp.

This is a bold needlewoven bracelet of metallized glass beads with Mykonos discs. Glass triangle and round beads are handsewn in a square stitch in four sections. Between each section is a Mykonos ceramic bead for accent. The beaded loop and clasp makes it look like a continuous band. I love these greek beads! After […]
This piece I worked long and hard on. I used imitation pearls and black seed beads, with tigertail wire and silver headpins. I saw a necklace in this style but with different colors and it was not as sassy. I saw the necklace as a challenge for me so I decided to look at it […]
This necklace consists of many of my handmade lampwork beads, gemstones and Japanese seed beads. My theme and colour palette were decided upon as part of a nature series, this piece being the butterfly.

The idea of this set came to me last fall and was inspired on a very sunny day. It was what we call Golden Fall. First, I weaved the necklace base using vertical netting stitch technique. I used tiny seed Czech beads #12 of amber color. Then I made seven leaves for the necklace and […]
When I saw a sample of stitching seed beads into the twisted rope called DNA, I had to try it. It’s pretty time-consuming, especially with small #11 seed beads. After many weeks of starting and stopping, this is the result. I added silver spacers, my favorite green triangular beads and a toggle clasp.
