What about some jewelry?

Too tired to crochet this weekend, so I beaded:

2 nice #bracelets:

one on blue:2014-04-14 15.55.06-1 2014-04-14 15.58.24-1 2014-04-14 15.58.24-4 2014-04-14 15.59.33-3

I used a pandahall tutorial, found on pinterest. They have a lot of cute beading tutorials on their learning center:

http://lc.pandahall.com/

or on pinterest, their  tutorial: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/31384528626329288/

I added 3 seed beads between those crystals.

And a green bracelet.

It is a bangle and it has a name: Shehrezade. It was a photo tutorial for this too on pandahall, but I don’t find it right now, instead I used this:

Sherezada

but not 2 sizes perles, just one. It is a RAW base with seed beads betwwen middle perles.

And a crocheted collar:

inspired  by a border, which I mixed it with my rug edging. This time with picots between clusters. This one needs to be blocked.

I didn’t crochet, but I bought yarn, crochet thread:)

I can’t wait to use it!

And because it’s raining, some pictures I took in a sunny day last week, in a park:

Have a nice and easy week!

found on pinterest. Use a 5-6 mm hook (H/I) for something similar with the blue dress. It’s not the same, but close enough.
