Watch this!

My lovely Avon lady recently commissioned a spiral rope necklace from me…this one….

She loved much so that she asked me to make some watch bands for a watch face she had…watch faces are you can create multiple looks without having to buy lots of watches.  Follow this link to see the sort of watchfaces Im talking about –  So I made a few different designs…she requested something in a red particularly..but I know she likes autumnal I did a few different colours.

This one is Lampwork beads with gold glass pearls and gold foil lined glass beads.

This one features red and white lampwork beads with silver barrel beads.

This one is orange catseye, red aventrine and orange crackle beads.

This one is Tigerseye, brown glass pearls and amber coloured glass beads.

This one has millefiori beads with brown and red spiderweb beads.

I made one other one… with muted red rounded rectangles and silver beads… but forgot to photograph it before my Avon lady bought it. And she wants all the rest as well! I was only expecting her to want one or two…so Im thrilled she wanted them all.

Today I also completed another beaded cab..using Blue Goldstone. It can be hard to find seedies to work with it well..its a very dark blue with speckles in it. But I bought some fabulous 8/0 seedies from Cranberry and they worked really well… helped by the fact I had some 11/0 Delicas in a similar colour and some cubes with a similar finish. I finished it off with some purple iris magatamas. I really pleased with how it turned out.

I love it when the creative urge works 😀
