I decided I was going to get my seedies out to play yesterday.

They are hopefully going to be used in a sewing project.  :)

A couple more YLC things... This is a what-if arising from yet another engineering failure... I quite like the design even though the colour is a bit pink even for me  :P

This is yesterday's YLC thing, a diagonal right angle weave collar with some mostly Czech bead soup in an odd size somewhere between 6 and 8. It worked up very quickly and has a lovely natural flexibility, it just drapes into a curve when you wear it. I managed to weave the shank of the clasp button into the stitch, by treating it as a bead, rather than stitching it on afterwards - I thought it might be stronger that way  :)

I love this stitch but have to work it out from scratch every time - and can only do it if I don't think about it too hard, otherwise I get very confused. I should write instructions really  ::)

And these are in the jewellery gallery because they're wirework really - but they have beaded rings (recycled from yet another engineering fail  ::)) so I'm going to be naughty and cross-post them here too. The spacers are by Laney  ;D

Some lovely stuff here.  Cornish those starfish are lovely and summery.  They would make lovely earrings.  Lynn you seem to be outdoing yourself at the moment.  The dangerous bead idea is wonderful, but need to be careful wearing them and that necklace is lovely.  I NEED the tutorial.  The earrings are smashing and those rings are certainly not a disaster.

Oooh, my first proper post in this gallery, thanks to the ever patient and fabby teacher that is Lynn.
This is my first finished seed bead piece.
