Gerlinde Lenz created a new technique in which you can simulate a bead rope made with crochet. It is called Peyote with a twist.
I made this necklace in this great technique.
If you want to make this necklace yourself you use the free instructions I made. It is not a perfect pattern but it will give you an idea on how it is made. You need to have some experiance with this technique. You can find some instruction videos on You Yube on how to do Peyote with a twist. among otheres by Jill Wiseman.
Here is another new design from me.
Both versions are made with Fire polished rounds. In the golden version I used the brand new Fire polished Duets, and in the purple version I used etch full vitrail.

The pattern for this bracelet is a exclusive free pattern for the online beads shop DiMarca-Online

Here is my newest bracelet with Gem Duos.
I love the optical illusion of this bead pattern
The pattern for this bracelet is available in my shop:
One of the newest beads on the market are GemDuos. They look a little like DimondDuos but there are a lot more colours available.
Here are the first 3 designs I made with them and I think there will be more because I like them a lot.
The last project of 2016 was this bracelet made with Miyuki Tilas and Half tilas. The little green crystals are Swarovski Crystal mesh.
The pattern for this bracelet is the first pattern of 2017 in my shop
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.
