>Tiny Beaded Flowerbed Bracelet

>

It has been raining cats & dogs in Boston all weekend, and it is still raining! This kind of weather is pretty depressing, but at the same time, I do believe that means that Spring is near! So, to help lift my own spirits a bit, I worked on a Spring jewelry design using glass beads I received from Artbeads.com! :)

I ordered some tiny Czech glass flowers, as well as an Antique Silver-Plated Brass Round Frame Patera Bracelet and some Lacy’s Stiff Stuff. The frame bracelets are meant for embellishing with tiny pictures, beads, and papers using some type of resin, but I never seem to use things for what they are originally intended.

First, I cut out 5 circles of Lacy’s Stiff Stuff. Then, I began stitching on my tiny flowers and green seed beads using a basic bead embroidery technique. Before long, I beaded the entire circle. It looks like a tiny flower garden! :)

I repeated this process 4 more times, then I carefully glued each piece of beadwork into their flower beds using E-6000 glue. After it cures, this piece will be a beautiful accessory which is sure to be noticed wherever it is worn! I hope my design inspires you to make your own Tiny Beaded Flowerbed Bracelet! :)

  1. >that is so pretty, I love it! It reminds me of something victorian like. you do beautiful work. hopefully your rain will stop soon.

  2. >LB, that is REALLY awesome! For some reason I never thought those pateras could be used for bead embroidery… Oh how stupid and blind I was! I really thought paper collage + diamond glaze is the only way to put life into those findings!I am waiting for just the same findings to sell at my store, and I felt less exited than I could be because I haven't bought DG this time, I was kind of gloomy because of the thoughts "How will I introduce those to my customers if I even don't have Diamond Glaze yet?".. And here come you with your excellent idea! The possibilities are endless even without DG!! Oh, thank you so much for this post, it made me wait for the new findings with excitement. May I use your photo in store newsletter to show others what could be done with those findings? Or, do you mind if I translate your post into Russian, for those who don't understand English?

  3. >Hello Tanya! I am so glad you like my design! Of course you can use a photo of my bracelet in your newsletter. (Just please include a link to my blog or website!:) Also, I would be honoured if you translated to Russian! Please let me know when you do! I would love to see! =:)

  4. >Thank you so mush!> Just please include a link to my blog or websiteOh, don't even doubt I'll forget! :D

  5. >Hi, I finally did the translation! You can find it here: http://magic-beads.ru/patterns/bracelets/1892/Hope you like it! I had to put website logo onto each pic because there are several websites who usually take articles and photos from my site without any link and note where they got it, so.. I hope you don't mind.

  6. >Very cool, Tanya! I really like it! I posted it on my blog, and on my 'Featured' blog page, too! Thanks so much!! :)
