String for life

Bracelet in flat spiral peyote stitch with 6 mm bicone crystals and 11/0 pearl white seedbeads.
Easy to make, but it's a classic!
This is a netted collar in greys and soft pink beads, beautiful and delicate.
Two necklaces in soft peach colors both with 4 mm facetbeads and 11/0 and 8/0 seed beads.
I love beading with delicate colors, it makes the projects look delicate and romantic.

Some past projects

I made this necklace a few years ago, to practice several stringing techniques. Inside the grey netting part is a strand of pearl white seedbeads in tubular peyote stitch.
It still is one of my favourite neklaces.
A romantic necklace with pale salmon pearls and bicone crystals, seperated bij metal spacers. Between these sets are three strands of salmon seedbeads. 

Purple pearls and butterfly ornament

It's all about beads

My whole life I've been working/playing with beads. I made so many necklaces in all kinds of styles that I lost count. But I also made bracelets and earrings.
It's time I start to share what I've been making all these years and what I will make in the future. Even though I'm Dutch, I'm doing this in English, because the beading market isn't that big in Holland. This way I'm trying to reach more beading enthousiasts around the world.

Thanks for coming and enjoy!
