Bit o' Bling (design by Shelley Nybakke)

This is one of the creations we did at the bead retreat I attended back in August. It’s entitled “Bit o’ Bling”, and it is, indeed, filled w/ bling! It’s ALL Right Angle Weave (RAW), and is made with metal seed beads and 14# Fireline! Aaaaaagh!
I didn’t complete it right away, but finally put my nose to the grindstone a few weeks ago and got it done. And so glad I did … I’ve received many compliments on it, and it is such an enjoyable, special piece of jewelry to wear. It is really substantial in weight (due to the metal beads) and feels like an expensive piece. I love it!

Materials: swarovski bicones swarovski pearls #4 snap closure wildfire beading thread 15° metal seed beads 11° metal seed beads 8° metal seed beads

Beautful Great job! That technique is a bit time comsuming and we’ll worth it, love this bracelet !

Terrie ...

Thanks very much, everyone! Yes, right angle weave can be very tedious and taxing, but it does yield a beautiful result. The color in this is Swarovski’s Pacific Opal, one of my favorites. Goes well with turquoise or green. One of my favorite Swarovski colors. The pearl is also Swarovski… color: jade.
Thank you again, all, for your lovely compliments.

Aww, thank you, Madalynne! Very sweet of you to say so.

Haven’t spoken to you much lately. I’ve been sort of away from the ’net a lot in the last couple months … traveling, tending parents, raising ADULT children (oy-veh!), etc.
How ya been???
