Made to order!




















I've been working on a made to order bracelet--my customer wanted a peyote bracelet, with a celtic knot design---after sketching it out many times--I finally sent her a picture and she responded that it was exactly what she wanted---she had a bracelet when she was young--pink and black, with a celtic knot design and she wanted another!


The sketching was the easy part--;>) the beadweaving of it was a pain, until I got into the rhythm of the design---lots of rippits! ---but it's finished and I thought I would put it up here.



I've designed and made about 5 beadweaving projects for customers and I always say--I'll never do it again--but always seem to change my mind when asked again! Seems like the goal and the designing something new gets me in gear!


I'm putting up some pictures of some other 'made to order' goodies, too--and now I'm working on a wide black and white netted collar for someone. I'll put that up here when I get further along!

I'm impressed ... that's some beautiful beadwork! I couldn't even begin to pick a favorite, but the whimsical nature of the earrings are tickling my fancy at the momentッ

Beautiful beadwork. You do terrific work...very labor intensive. I know, I've done that sort of thing.

Thanks for getting that Stumble Review done for me last night.

I'm going to remember where there's a closet to share...even if it has a faulty rod. LOL
