Sencillas - April Workshops 2011 & Belfast Creative Crafts Show October 2011

Necklace   &   Bracelet

A couple of jewellery samples I demonstrated at the past April Kings Hall show for Northern Ireland Beaders Guild stand. I've been a member of this guild from the very beginning in 2008 and now I'm part of the committee.
These pieces are quick and fun to make. I used glass beads, 0.8mm gold and silver plated wire, pearls, gold and silver plated chain and links, jump rings, clasps and jewellery pliers.

Un par de muestras de bisutería que demostré en el pasado show de manualidades en Kings Hall en abril para el stand del Gremio de Joyeria de Irlanda del Norte. He sido miembro de este gremio desde sus inicios en el 2008 y ahora soy parte del comité directivo.
Estas piezas son faciles y divertidas de elaborar. Use cuentas de vidrio, alambre de 0.8mm  plateado y dorado, perlas, cadena y eslabones plateados y dorados, anillas, broches y tenazas/alicates para bisutería

I did more workshops for the NI Beaders Guild at last week's Kings Hall Show too.  I'll post the pictures of the new necklace and bracelet made at the Friday Workshop soon. In the meantime a few pictures of the NI Beaders Guild stand & jewellery display
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

Hice más talleres para el gremio de joyeria de Irlanda del Norte en el show de la semana pasada en Kings Hall también. Cargaré las fotos del nuevo collar y pulsera que hice en los talleres del viernes pronto. Mientras tanto aqui les pongo unas fotos del stand y bisutería.
Gracias por visitarme y que tengan un fin de semana genial.

I had a go at  little bit of bead embroidery and sewing for this needle case. I used assorted seed beads in gold and red, metallic thread and sequins. I also used cardboard (from a cereal box) for the the front and back to make the covers sturdy and sew a fancy beady edge to finish it off.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great Friday.

Probé un poquito de bordado con mostacillas y costura para este alfiletero. Usé mostcillas variadas en color dorado y rojo, hilos metalicos y lentejuelas. Tambien usé cartón (de una caja de cereal) para el frente y posterior de la cubiertas para hacerlas mas rigidas y cosí un borde lujoso con las mostacillas para terminarlo.
Gracias por visitarme y que tengan un viernes genial.

Entre Nudos

Bright and bold - I made the centre piece of this necklace as chunky as possible and used  gold metal and wooden beads. The beads are big but the necklace it's actually quite light. I also used rat tail cord/satin cord in red and black thong. I used the Macramé Half Hitch knot and weave the cords in a way that the red and black would be seen more in certain places. I finished it off with some of my handmade connectors(heart shape) red glass beads and a magnetic clasp.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
