My favourite ring - I like it so much that I had to keep it and make a different one for selling ;) And this one stayed here with me... my preciuous :)))) I used swarovski chrystal with metal setting, 8mm donut-cut beads, 3 & 4 mm firepolished beads, 6 mm special cut beads and 4 mm pale rose imitation pearl beads.
I fell in love with these big purple lampbeads at forst sight :) I wanted to use them for something uniqe... I think I did it ;)Anyway...if you can chrochet a little you can make this easily... see the instuctions on my site: http://deeva.uw.hu/mintak/Horgolt_nyakek.pdf
This set was made for Monika´s wedding. I used imitation pearls, swarovski beads and rondells. fire polished beads on pins. Her dress had a "dead gold" coloured embroidery so I did not want to use only white beads. The matted tawny imitation pear was a perfect choice to match the wedding gown. The set contains a pair of earrings and a headpiece too.
The pendant has a coloured shell center (14 mm) and is made of czech firepolised beads (5 mm), sead beads, swarovski christals (5 mm) and round imitation pearls (4 mm). The beads are on crocheted wire. I put the pendant on round leather srings along with the metal hearts and some beaded beads. The ring is also made of the same elements but on 0,25 mm fishing line.
