Necklace "Rollercoaster"

This necklace by Vera Baumeister was published in “Perlenpoesie” n° 32.
It has an extraordinary design, so I had to try it.


I started with the first repeating pattern following the instructions to the letter. But I noticed that I did not like it this way. I do not like these seesaws and I could see the thread on the edges between the picots in step 6.

So I decided to bead it my way. That means, I secured the three seed beads of the picots in one step above and below before starting the next element. I also connected the RAW-parts directly to the corresponding basic-element. This way I built up the necklace reducing the back-weaving to a minimum.


The necklace is very lightweight. You have to place it very carefully but then it keeps it place.

Addition: Wearing the necklace a bit longer, the semicircle parts fold to the centerline, which doesn`t look not very nice

Noor Pendant

This pendant by Riana Olckers has been on my to-do list for a long time. Finally I did it.


Unfortunately the picture does not show the real brightness of the used colours.

For some steps I had to change the sizes of the beads, because with the ones mentioned in the pattern there was to much thread still visible.

Aladdin’s Lamp

Arabia, these also are the Fairy Tales of Thousand and One Night. Along these lines I have designed this pendant.



Aladdin’s Lamp looks especially beautiful when a Rivoli with a strong colour is used.

Leyla - the necklace

To complete the set I needed a matching necklace. It was made after the trip and in a new colour combination.
