Falling in Love with Our Customer Designs!

October 21st, 2011 · 3 Comments

Check out some of these lovely creations designed by fellow Artbeads.com customers! If you have a design that you’d like to share, send a picture to our Artbeads Blog e-mail at artbeadsblog@gmail.com. Happy Friday! Get inspired to create something new this weekend!

Helen made this lovely purple necklace and earring set using several beadweaving stitches with glass beads, Lucite and resin beads. Just gorgeous! Artbeads would like to wish Helen a happy birthday, too!

After Lynn purchased her peacock Russian artist pendant, it inspired her to create this incredible necklace. Surrounding the hand-painted focal are peach moonstone beads, potato pearls and glass tube beads, as well as some gold links. Lynn made this for her sister’s birthday, so hopefully she makes another one for herself!

Artbeads customer Melissa made this stunning necklace she calls “Butterfly Wishes.” Designed with 4mm and 6mm Swarovski crystal bicone beads, the top strand of her necklace can also be worn as a bracelet. What awesome versatility!

We love to see what you can create with our beads, so keep your designs coming! You next design just might inspire someone to start jewelry making.

    Hi Mary Anne
    Thank you for your kind words regarding my “Royal Purple” neckpiece. There is no pattern, sorry. As in all my freeform pieces its made up as I stitch along…some “unbeading” is sometimes involved too when things don’t go the way I expect. Give freeform a try…you’ll be surprised at what you can come up with.
