Soutache earrings

I have started to learn soutache technique and I love it very much.  This time I show simple earrings in classical black and white color combination. 

I used soutache braid and some syntethical stone beads (striped ones) and glass beads and small glass drops. 
 I like that soutache earrings are so light wait compared to bead embroidered earrings in the same size.

Icy crocheted rope lariat

It has been a very long break since I wrote here last time. 
It´s mainly because in July I started to work again, after being at home woth my son, and now I have very few time for my passion to beads. But I still try to do something :)

This lovely crocheted rope lariat is custom order. One very stylish lady saw my blue lariat and loved these glowing drop-beads I used there. But she didn´t wanted a blue necklace. So we decded together that these blue drops would like nice with white as well. And here is the result. 

This is long lariat (I forgot to measure the length before I gave it away), so it can be worn in  different ways.

I used Czech seed beads - white ones are milky ones with lovely silky shine. Blue ones are transparent.

One more picture  - the same fringes on jeans :)

Gold and black jewelry set with clip earrings

 This jewelry set is made as custom order. I used big glass cabachons that I colored loght gold. This is very beautiful color. Depenging on the light it somethimes looks darker, somethimes lighter. I love this color.

Cabachons, I used, are quite big as you can see. I surrounded them with different sizes of black seed beads, small golden ones and big (size 6/0) gold filled light beige Toho seed beads. These beads match perfectly with light gold cabachos.  

Backside of bead embroidered details is covered with brown ultra suede. 

And this is the first time for me to make clip earrings. But actually the difference compared to making hook earwire earrings is not so big. But still ....

New technique - soutache

Some time ago I tried soutache. I have looked and admired soutache jewelry for a wile - what a beautiful colors and details. And now I decided to try.

My first soutache detail is very simple. Three soutache cords, glass beads and invisible beading cord.

When I started I didn´t had any idea how I will use this detail. But when I had finished couple a loops I thought it would be nice on a hair barrette. So I took a peace of gray felt, glued the detail to the felt,  and then to a barrette blank.

Beautiful simple hair barrette with soutache detail.

Pink and black set of necklace and earrings

Some time ago I finished these pink and black earrings and necklace.

I used glass cabachons again :) The central one is quite big approx. 3 x 4 cm. I glued them all to black felt and started stitching. I used different sizes of black seed beads and some small pink and gold ones, too.

As the cabachons are quite big, the necklace itselt is quite massive as well.
And matching earrings with round glass cabachons (14 mm) and black lever back earwires. Backside of earrings and beaded tiles of neckalce are covered with ultra suede.
I started with matching bracelet as well, but I haven´t had enoug time to finish that.

Ready for summer

Wrapped bracelets are perfect for summer. Blue turquise is summer classic. Specially with natural brown leather and golden metal button. 

 And bright colors as this red and flower button are also summers must have.

Gold and black shoe clips

To complite my black and gold collection I made also matching shoe clips. These are simple oval shape clips. In the center there are the same golden handpainted glass cabachons surrounded with different seed beads. 

In the back there is brown ultra suede. 

And here are the clips attached to beige shoes.
