Constellation Pendant

By Cathy Andrews, you can find the tutorial in Beadwork-Magazine December 2017. My ladies here call it a “Fish”, for me it is more a medal.

The pendant is now waiting for its crochet rope.

Crochet Ropes

After a long time, I decided to crochet again. Both patterns can be found Pinterest.

The necklaces are made with seed beads 15°.

Rose of Sharon

This brooch was also designed for the world tour.

It is made in Herringbone-technique, which needs a bit of patience but during those days at sea, time was not a problem.

Finally the tutorials for the beaded sphere "World" and "Cat and Mouse" are printed.

They are now available in our etsy-shop.

Set "Aroha"

Finally, it is time to follow up on my last cruise.

I had the opportunity to accompany the “AIDAcara“ on a part of its world tour. My part brought me from San Antonio in Chile over the Easter Island, Tahiti, Bora Bora and New Zeeland to Sydney. If you take a look at the route, you will see, that we passed a lot of time at sea.

Therefore, I prepared a lot of projects, some needing a lot of time like the “Double Oglala”.
One of the special projects is the set “Aroha“. The name is a word of the Maori and means “Love“.

Because we were travelling shortly before Christmas, I thought, that something sparkling was the right idea. So, I bezeled Rivolis of different sizes with peanut-beads.

Sadly, my design was not as liked as I thought. They liked the earrings and the chain of the necklace but not the pendant.

Petite Couronne Pendant

It doesn’t happen very often now, but when I opened the last issue of Beadwork-Magazine and saw this pendant, I knew, I had to bead it.

Once again it’s a brilliant pattern by Alice Coelho.

It has been 10 years ago that I wrote my first tutorial for a contest. I want to celebrate this by sending my booklets from my etsy-shop without shipping costs until the 15th of November 2017.
