Jewellery update  
Been working on a few projects recently and realised I hadn't posted two of the complete ones so here's some piccies. The first is probably my favourite thing I've made so far - I love the colours.

Spent all day yesterday working on a large beaded embroidery pendant (you know when you keep saying 'I'll stop after this bit' and just keep going and going?). Was going to take pictures of that too but kind of forgot and I'm feeling way too lazy to get the camera out again.

I really love the second one - is that a bracelet? Looks too short for a choker....

BTW - this is not really less complicated than cross stitch. You have so many more tiny tiny components to work with.

Tell me - do you work to a pattern? Do you make a pattern yourself? Do you make them up as you go along?

I'm also laughing at your icon. What would he do? Stun you, kidnap you, see the light, be an over protective dad....

Yeah the second ones a bracelet but taking a picture of it around my own wrist proved to be way too tricky!

These were both worked to a pattern. I tend to use patterns to get ideas and learn techniques and then make variations on these with different styles and colours later.

The patterns for both of these were brought although I can't remember from where (I think I got the first in Hobbycraft). I'm very fond of a company called Beads East for patterns but I have to wait an buy them in groups since they're American and it'd be a waste for me just to order one at a time.

Oh, wow, they look insanely complicated. Incredibly pretty though!
