This is a joint project with DiMarca online. They have kits available in 4 different bead colours and you can choose from more than 50 colours Chatons, to give the bracelet your own touch https://www.dimarca-online.com/marquise-de-pompadour-by-akke-jonkhof.html
Today a new bead is launched. It is not an new bead shape, but is is a older bead in a totally new appearance. The new Superduo Duet has 2 colours, which give a total new way of using them.
I had the chance to try them and here are my first ( and for sure not the last) results.
I while ago I received some Ava beads to design with.
This is what I came up with, But I am sure I will make some more designs with these beads
The pattern for this bracelet is available in my Etsy shop
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
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
