Few years ago, my friends Hana and Karolina taught me crocheting with beads, i love it finally.....and i love to make long lariat from Preciosa Ornela's seed beads mixes, it's good work, especially if i don't have any idea about beading.

This one is made from pinch beads mix

these two from Presso beads and daggers and Pip beads

It happens sometimes, when the right beads meet the right idea and pattern, like few month ago.... PreciosaOrnela company made new seed beads in Solgel colors, very first idea was FLOWERS, they call for them! In the same time i was added to Cath Thomas's facebook group From Petal to Pod. It starts my flower addiction. As a member of this group, you can use free tutorial, made by Cath Thomas and enjoy many beautiful beadwork using it, not only flowers, but many unexpected designs.

Some of my beadworks are listed in our Etsy shop, so take a look, you are very welcome there.

 You have probably seen a lot of new beads last months, new shapes, new hot finishes. The last ones i got to my hands are 4ceed beads, designed by Kelly Stevenson together with czech bead man Jaromír Mašek. The idea was, if i well remember, to make 4 holes beads to match SuperDuo beads . And of cousrse, they do, in horizontal line of 4ceed. But it could be little boring for me, just connect 4 holes beads with 2 holes beads. These beads give you more space to beading in multiple layers, to make better 3D beading.... and to have a big fun with beading.

I choose these for my first project, they are 5x5x3mm size, color crystal with antique silver finish
/18549/. They are 3mm thick, so can be visible in your beading.                                                     

I've started with MiniDuo, than 11/0 seeds and 4ceed

continue with 8/0 seeds....you can see 4ceed beads pretty well here and all their possibility

and i worked on the top side

back sides of beading

I made 2 pices and connected them together

and this is the result, this beaded bead can be use however, as part of earrings, neclace....anything

Finally i can say, this bead is worth of your attention, you have to try it, i highly recommend it. You can buy 4ceed beads here https://www.etsy.com/shop/TheCzechGlassBeads or here: http://back2bead.com/

Dvoudírkové bubínky už tu jsou deší dobu, nedávno k nim přibyly leptané dekory, vytvořila jsem z nich několik šperků, měla jsem v plánu udělat návod na alespoň jeden z nich.

Tak tady je "Ocelové město" ....zatím jen v češtině, doufám, že se mi brzy podaří to slušně přeložit do angličtiny.

Leptané bubínky jsou k dostání zde : TCGB a zde : B2B

My friend Kelly Stevenson asked me to make jim some new desing from new beads, manufactured by Jamas for his new company Back2Bead . It was big challenge!!! I know Drum beads for a long time,but these new are special, they are ETCH!
Some of them:

I was inspired with my home county,where i grew up, it's heavy industry and coal mines place. The beads look like coal,blast furnace slag, old steel and more.

Sometimes, you have no idea what to do, your mind is empty......well, take beads and play.

I did it with VillaBeads from PreciosaOrnela. 

This has looked like a good component for bracelet, maybe necklace, but too big for an earrings. And of course, i had to find a better colors, some bright and joyful.

I have found a good way to connect all components together and started to make clasp.

This is my last design, called " SECRETS IN THE BUSH" . I have used PreciosaOrnela's  Villa beads, seed beads and charlottes. MATUBObeads SuperDuo, Matubo seeds.
