Preciosa, my precious

Yesterday a note from the post office came though my mailbox, I knew it was one of two things, a stone to open my throatchakra OR the samples from Preciosa Ornela that I will be working with and try out. I was under the weather so I thought that it could wait till today and so it did.
It was a box, so way to big to be the stone so it had to be the samples. I ran from the store to my sister who lives the closest and opened it up... And all the goodies came out, one by one...

You see, goodies to play and find out how to work them. It is a 5 mm long bead with 2 holes. Fantastic colors and I cannot wait to try them out!
I was ment to make stitch sample cards for my class today but there is always until classes start tomorrow :D

RAW on pause and another project is being born

I asked myself if it was possible to change the color on the rosecab since a person only need so many black and white rosecabs so I gave it a shot. With only pencils and diamond glaze it looked like watercolors, so I got a bit creative and used tempera mixed with the diamond glaze and this is the results, the lighter is only tempera and diamond glaze and the darker ones is painted with pencils first.

And here is a new project, you will be able to follow it to the Etsy shop and see me make changes, both good and bad once. It is barely visable but on the felt I have drawn paisleypatterns. Thoose are one of the changes I will make, or in this case totally ignore.
You will get an update as soon as I made the pendant as I want it :)

Things I should have been able to figure out myself

Ok, this is why I hate my brain. If I did not struggle to keep RAW out of my head as much as possible I would have figured out this idea myself a long time ago, not getting it from the fabulous magazine Bead n´Button. The idea is so simple, but who came up with RAW with size 15/0 beads?

So this is this necklaces journey, if it survives another cat attack...

And the cab... I will sacrifice one to find out if I can dye them, I do not need this many black and whites. I will keep you posted :)

I won!

 The center is the Cresent moon with a protecting pentagram, above the woods flourish in the soil, beneath the fires are burning. The air swirls to the right and the water makes thier waves on the left.
In this you got all you need for life to exist.

This won me the first prize at Sirlig.se and woke me up instantly :)

Defeat and the procrastination nono

I was supposed to enter a contest with the theme four elements... Well, I thought and came up with a great idea... sadly I did nog work at it as much as I had to. So I folded 3 am. My head was killing me from 2 allnighters and the fact that it is supposed to be in today.

Not finished beadwork, no edging, no comp.

So procrastinate less even if it is the easy way to go.
I will take a bit of a break from this so that I can do a memorypiece for a friend of mine.

I am now a proud member of Etsy Beadweavers!!!! I can participate in challenges, my store can be recommended.... only good things come from Etsy beadweavers :)

And just to show you the bracelet I was working on... it is done now

Spring love in pink paisley

Spring love of pink paisley

Bead embroidered necklace with suede backing. Handmade polymer hearts with a touch of extra sparkle

Made a discovery

Waiting and waiting

Today they will announce who is the winner in the Alchemy comp at Smyckestillbehör.se.... Since I have a tiny fear of faces (noticed that I have´nt been doing to much on my dollseal?) my entry creeps me out... but I had researched alchemy and this was the more metaphysical display of that.... and I am waiting and waiting....

I totally forgot!

I won a comp!
The theme was intentions and you had to get happy just by the colors so I made this. The colors are the happiest I got and my intention was to get the circles round :)

Fused glass

A piece I made for a glassfusing class that I am going to, to show what else you can do instead of just gluing a bail on the back. It will be a bit of advertising for my classes as well

Positive thinking

I am going on a challenge with my sister and an internet friend is joining in as well. It is a version of Sirlig pärlors bracelet challenge.

My version might take a little longer but it will be rewarding at the end.
I made a bracelet each for me and my sister, we will wear them each day and for every time we have a negative thought we have to change the wrist. The goal is to have the bracelet on the same wrist for 3 weeks.

Wish us good luck, we start tomorrow. My sister is pink and I am blue

Earrings and the power of the sparkle

This is the earrings I made with ICE resin. I have used a one hole ring and a few layers of resin and glitter inbetween. I think they turned out quite well for a first try :D

Love is in the air and Resin

I have been playing with a, for me new medium, ICE resin. It is fun and I can play alot with it :)
So I made some lockets and some bottles. Some rings and I bet there will be other things :D
The candy on this ring and on the locket is made out of sculpey and set with a few layers of sparkling resin

The roses was tricky to get in and the letters was a hassel but I think it is cute and a nice way to tell someone how you feel :)

Polymer cake

Since I got my new kitten I have not been able to bead as I want.
BUT there is one thing I can do that he does not get involved with.... Polymer clay.

So last night I made some cakes.

Some are earrings, some are anything you like with a lobster clasp and some you can put anywhere :D

Headache and the results of that

It felt like my head was about to explode yesterday but I could not relax and sleep either so I headed to this page that my sister showed me and did it.
The result is... not straight at all, could probably need som more work but hey, I dont do this fimo thing all that often so when I do... well lets just say that I am happy with it.

The set will of course be given to my darling sister that introduced me to fimo fractals :D
