Welcome to my blog. I have been beading for ten years and there is still a lot to do. I began with crocheting but now I use other techniques too. 32 years ago I joined the "Club of Seamans's-Wives" and we have lived on the Costa Blanca in Spain for 22 years. I have taught beading for 9 years and also work as a translator/interpreter.
Lukas is an
engine driver in a puppet play that I loved when I was a child.
the Christmas decoration I found the wooden pendants for the Christmas tree, my
children liked very much. Among these is an engine and suddenly I had the idea
to bead one. I could not get this idea out of my head and so I started beading.
Here you see the new engine of Lukas:
about 7 x 3 x 5 cm.
I used seed beads size 8, 11 and 15 and Rivolis
14 and 10 mm.
After two weeks fighting
against several viruses, I needed something beautiful, easy to bead. I found it
in the Beadwork-Magazine from August 2013. It is the “Heart to heart-bracelet”
by Janet Palumbo. Finally, a pattern where everything is right from the text up
to the drawings.
I like the
3-D-effect, the result of using peanut-beads.
