If you’d like to try something different with Kumihimo why not try out this fabulous brooch featured on the front cover of Bead magazine this month? These gorgeous Solaris crystals are a new shape of Fancy Stone from Swarovski Elements. This is one of the projects from my book, The Knotting and Braiding Bible to be published at the end of June.
On my way to London for the Swarovski Elements Launch tomorrow till Thursday. Looking forward to demonstrating my four pieces of jewellery including this wrapped rope necklace. It’s got a kumihimo rope, some handmade ropes made from rattail and a sturdy nylon rope bought at www.bead-workshop.co.uk. Evelyn – here’s what you can do with that black rope!
Finally finished the last piece for the Swarovski Launch and all ready to go. This year the main theme is Traces of Time with four sections: classic (faded memories), romantic (sunset rituals), progressive (vivid moments) and glamour (forgotten dreams). Can you tell which design comes from which theme? If you get a chance next week do come along to see the collection before it gets into the shops – I’ll be demonstrating on all days.
I’m just finishing adding the Fancy Stones and beads around the micro macrame to create the bib design. The piece has been designed to showcase the Romantic trend for the launch of the new Tangerine colour of Swarovski Elements. It works well with light silk, rose gold and these fabulous petrol blue pearls.
I’m a big fan of micro macrame and just love the way the Superlon colours blend through – lets you choose to match the beads. I’m working on this design and plan to add Fancy Stones to create a bib style necklace.
First design finished for the Swarovski Elements launch in London in a couple of weeks. These magnificent Crystalactite pendants make stunning earrings, surrounded by tiny beaded chains. I’ve purposely left the front chain short so that you can glimpse the beautiful pendant inside.
