Sonoko's way

In the Bead & Button Magazine from February 2014 explaint Sonoko Nozue her way of bead croching. Now I tried it myself.
I do not know, if I have read the pattern correctly. But I like the result.

I used 3mm pearls and facetted beads of the same size.

Last Wednesday my grandchildren finally got there christmas presents. Now I can show you the both Minions I crocheted.

This is Stuart, who lives now with our grandson Nicolás.
Bob stays with Valerie.

Both are crocheted with seed beads 15° and 42 beads per round.

Because I like the side parts of the "Firenze" by Yvonne King very much, I brought them into the center. The result is the necklace "Verona".

I used pearls from 8 to 12 mm. It is a necklace for every day, but it is also prepared for the evening.

Firenze Necklace

This necklace was not the first on my to-do-list, but then a friend persuaded me to make it. Now I am happy that I did. It is suitable for daily use.

The pattern has been written by Yvonne King and you find it in the Beadwork Magazine February 2014.

Secret Garden Bracelet

The "Secret Garden Bracelet" by Penny Dixon published in  Beadwork Magazine February 2015 is an ambitious, complex beading-pattern, which I enjoyed very much.  
The specifications for the materials are correct. The drawings and explanations are significant.

Unfortunately I only could wear it  twice, then the subbase separated from the upper part because the thread broke. I will use a double thread when I repare it.

Singapore meets Varna

Last year I bought some rectangular shaped stone-beads in Varna. Seeing them I had the pattern of the "Imperial Necklace" by Manek in my mind.
Of course I adapted the design to my ideas.

The necklace "Chrysanthenum" by Manek was my project for the beading meeting in Bavaria. I had so much to look and talk, that I did not have enough time to finish it there.
After seeing an example in nature, I knew, that my necklace only will have three flowers.
Here it is:
