Beautiful Beaded Bracelets!

handcrafted by motidana

           It`s been a busy time at the studio, making bracelets! A preview from the first lot , here are two intricately bead woven bracelets with the center being same. Look how we came up with two variations in the same beads.....

Art in beads and threads and more
Indian glass beads
It was trial and error and lots of reworking before these came up to my satisfaction , but finally these two have turned out good I think.
So what do you think about this? And which one would you pick?

ciao for now, it`s back to beading another one

Bead Peeps Swap and Hop REVEAL!!



http://kalaabhushan.blogspot.in/ , bead embroidery jewelry pinterest


Finally, the reveal day is here, and my entry for this challenge is done ! It`s been a month of roller coaster ride, and I`m thrilled that I finally was able to finish my piece on time though there were lots of times when I felt I would`nt be able to make it to the reveal day !


 My partner for the hop is Jami Shipp . As you would have seen my previous post , here`s the photo of the beads she sent me . Since the contents were limited , I decided , it would be one piece , added with a few  beads and components, from my own stash.
     Not sure of what her likes were , I decided to take a safer route and sent her goodies which would give her an easier choice of pieces to make . Seed beads in different shades, metal components, Mother-of-Pearl pendant, and blue handmade ceramic beads , a specialty of Rajasthan in India were among the beads I sent .


The beaded component seen in this picture was made a couple of years ago and I added it at the last minute as something handmade had to be included in the goods. I hope Jami has made something out of the goodies I`ve sent and enjoyed every minute like I did in making my piece.

                                                              Here`s what I made

And now , finally my piece, which I have named `Agni ` meaning burning fire in Hindi , our national language . The shimmer and glitter reminds me of the blazing fires . The pendant turned of to be bigger than I had imagined and so I decided to match it with some vintage components I had from my stash. The molten gold drops look perfect with the focal pendant and I added the copper chain to match with the handmade clasp Jami sent me. The links were added to hold the chain in place and are spaced  to keep the necklace flat . I think , the piece has turned out much better than what I envisioned . 

  Thank you  Linda Anderson, for hosting and organising such a wonderful swap.Looking forward to more such events , and I off now to view all the lovely entries everyone else has made .
