One of the newest beads are the Nib-bits. I had the pleasure to play with them. Here are some things I made with them

A few years ago I made these earrings for Christmas. I received a lot of requests for a pattern.
So here it is.
I made a free pattern for the earrings. A very early Christmas present for all my customers, Face book friends and visitors of my blog

I few years ago I made a free pattern for my O bead Necklace.
Unfortunately there were some people having trouble with this necklace. From some people I heard the necklace wrinkled and wasn’t flat. I think the problem is the little differences in the colour coatings of the O beads. Now I made this necklace again using a different threadpath. My necklace was nice and flat so I think I solved the problem.
Here is my new free pattern for the O bead necklace
A still love to work with CzechMate Crescent as you can see in the first bracelet, But I think the new Arcos beads designed by Puca are also great to play with. Both are moon shaped beads, but because the holes are placed in a different side of the beads the have totally different apperance in beadwork
