Janet Pendant

I made this pendant using Puca's pendant.  I also used Puca's beads calles Arcos and Minos.
She has been coming up with fantastic bead shapes.( I want them all, but it takes time for the new beads to arrive to the Unites States)
This pattern I found on this French bead website and you can find the pattern wich is in French, with excellent pictures, HERE
This tutorial is for a component that I used as a pendant, I attached the bead tassel and I used a lobster clasp so I can use different chains or cords. I also inserted a 12mm Crystal rivoli in the middle.
What do you think of this pattern?

Pendant Pia

This was another earring tutorial, I like it better as a pendant, since some of the tutorial for earrings are quite large.
This a pattern by Francesca Piombino,  a beader from Italy. I love watching the jewelry videos it doesn't matter what language as long as I can see the pictures.
You can watch her tutorial on YouTube HERE
I used 14mm Rivoli, white Superduos, 11/0 gold Toho seed beads, Chinese Rondelles and a Crystal Drop.
Have fun watching the videos and making a beaded masterpiece.
Stay tuned, I made another pendant using Francesca's tutorial.

Corona Pendant

As I promised you, here is the Corona Pendant, actually it is a tutorial for earrings, and I liked it better as a pendant, since it is a little to large for earrings for me.
My friend Shirley does not have her ears pierced, so a pendant it is.
The pattern is from YouTube by le Gioie di Carmen, and you can watch the video HERE
In her video she does not have the bead drop, I have been buying the drops at the Gemfaire from a place that sells them 70% off, this one is  Lapis Lazuli.
It matches very well the bracelet from the previous post.

Dizzy Daisy Duo Trio Bracelet

I made this lovely bracelet for my friend Shirley for her birthday last month.
I made this bracelet to match a shirt I sent her.
The pattern for this beauty is from Bronzepony Beaded Jewelry on you YouTube.
You can watch the video HERE
I made two rows instead of three. I made another one with the 3 rows for another friend using the same colors.
Check the video and hopefully you also will make one.
I bought the SuperDuos at Hobby Lobby at 50% off.

 I will in my next post talk about the matching pendant.
Stay tuned!!!
