Ooooooooooow, for me especially the ring with the 4 white round beads in the middle and the sort of rusty purple bicones! It's so funny to see how everybody likes something else. Very nice work.

Greetings from Karin.

Christina, they all look so fun, flirty, and lovely!  You've been very busy. Did you make them to be gifts?

Thanks folks!

 

Sharon, they were not exactly gifts. I sing in a ladies choir and about two weeks ago went to rehearsal with a ring - a big black a silver affair matching the earrings pictured - and somebody literally took it off my hand. Since then, I've been busy making more and other things as well and just charging for the beads, partly because I'm not sure about making money on other people's designs. I'm never quite sure if it's ok to sell things from tutorials etc that are in the public domain.

 

I'm going to make another of the big black and silver ones and I'll post a picture.

Thanks again everyone.

 

Jewelrymaking11. Most of these designs are from a youtube channel called "beadifulnights" which has some really good, easy to follow patterns. Some of them I've "adapted" a bit. If you want any detailed help - links or help with how I made anything in the pictures email me and I'll gladly give you the info.

Christina,

I love all your work, and you take such amazing pictures of your pieces. What kind of camera do you use, and do you use a light box? The colors are so precise and clear. Please do share your secrets. 

Happy Beading!!

Sue,

Well Sue, the secret is Martin my husband! I don't take the pictures. He was so thrilled when someone complimented his photos (he's smiling now!) as he is just learning - he has joined a camera club and is taking a course. The camera he uses isn't very sophisticated compared with some, it's a Panasonic Lumix FZ45 (it's a bridge camera). He used a home-made light box (looks weird - an old cardboard box with clip on lights - but works) to take most of the ring photos and the others are done in good daylight on a large black shiny tile place on our coffee table. He always uses a tripod and depresses the shutter remotely (using the timer) to stop any shake - especially on the very close shots.

 

Thank you Sue

 

Christina (and Martin)
