Cellini Twist Jewellery?
I saw a tutorial on Beadsdirect's blog (via youtube)... and it is for jewellery with a cellini twist. I'm so tempted to make it... but I do think that I shall first try something easier, with less skill required. The twists are absolutely gorgeous and I would like to have them but i am not sure about the bead sizes I have - apparently the different sizes give the build a twist... We shall see!
Well here I'm at it again! I bought some lovely bead collections from Sabrika's in various ethnical colours - Oriental Promise, Pink Garden, Forest Green, Seascape Tones and Tropical Sea - and got into this 'making' frenzy. So I decided to post some of them here.
This first one is my Oriental Dream Necklace, on sale on Etsy. I made it while unable to sleep, at two o'clock in the morning. I was thinking of re-visiting the Far East, in particular India or Thailand. I am quite pleased with the outcome, needless to say. Find it on etsy, or else contact me through the comments below if you want something custom-made for yourself.
I travelled to Malaysia earlier this year (actually late last year) and took some photographs that I am really proud of. We trekked along in the jungle, visited beaches and caves.... well writing a whole journal of my travels would bore everyone to death! So I thought I would share some pictures here with those who follow my occasional posts.... here you go!
