I had an impromptu beading date with Meghan today, and was it ever productive. I managed to finish the first gyroscope necklace and made another one in Brass.
I used every brass window bead I could find in the shop. To space out the 2 outer rings, I used two 4mm hematite fire polished beads. In the middle I have placed a garnet bead. The chain is a simple combination of 9mm Black Nickel and 6mm antique brass jump rings. I used a large brass toggle as well.
I also made a neat bunch of earrings
I also did a simple stranded necklace of teal and black glass pearls, and Meghan taught me a great trick. If you don;t have enough bead caps, or don’t have ones that fit your beads. A 4mm jump ring can work just fine as a spacer!
I also did a great byzantine bracelet for myself, which has fire polished glass beads in my bf’s birthstone, and my own. 🙂
Well, that’s it for today! I am getting everything ready for an open house I am having next week. If you are in the Ottawa area, message me for details!
