I know it is only the beginning of September but my mind is already working on my Christmas list and what I would like to make for family, friends, teachers, etc. I was going through some of my patterns and pulled out a few past and recent designs that work up quickly to share with you if you are looking for some ideas. (If you are interested, I included a link to the pattern by clicking on the name of the pattern below.)
First is Thryza's Charm. It is a neat right angle weave project that goes together in an evenings work. It has a unique bangle shape to it and is lots of fun!!
Verity is another fun right angle weave project that is very elegant with its netweave overlay!! There is even an option that incorporates a dangle with.
Elspeth bracelet and earrings work up quickly and adapt well to many colorways. Both work up in an evening.
Shaitana earrings are one of my favorite. It is a very elegant and adaptable pattern. It is a great pattern for learning how to bead around a rivoli. Again these work up in an evening and make a beautiful gift.
A few years ago I made a series of peyote bead bracelets. One of my favorites was this Back to School Wishes bracelet. With A, B, C peyote beads and delightful ceramic pencils and apples it is the perfect teacher gift!! For a limited time I am going to have the pattern for this bracelet, the Christmas Wishes bracelet and the Valentine's Wishes bracelet available as individual patterns. Of course the best deal is to get all 12 Wishes bracelets available in one file.
Far-falling bracelet". I know hardly original but fun! This was another bracelet that I was addicted to making. What I like about wearing this bracelet is the substantial feel it has due to the dimension of the far-falle beads.
Well I hope that I have gotten your minds thinking about what lovely things you can create for your gift-giving or at the very least enjoyed another peek and these projects. I will be sure to share with you which I choose to share with my friends and family this year!!
Have a great day!! Happy Beading.
