‘Bargello Style’ CzechMates Cuff

When the June/July edition of Beadwork Magazine arrived I thumbed through and found the pattern for the ‘BARGello Cuff’ designed by Michelle Gowland I was immediately entranced. I loved the use of the CzechMates 2-Holed Bars, the shape of the bars is perfect to make an attractive and comfortable cuff and the design is gorgeous!… Continue reading ‘Bargello Style’ CzechMates Cuff

Evening Out Earrings

Lindsey made these lovely long and dangling earrings recently using a chain that makes this look so easy. The chain alternates between the larger flat links and the smaller grouped chains so you just need a section of chain to make this look work. The 3-Petal Bellflowers come in lots of lovely colors and finishes, but this color worked so nicely with the chain.

Victorian Lovebirds Bracelet
