Ulrike Gunther's PrettyNett Pendant...

Beaded by me. This was fun and easy!!! I once again had to use what beads I had on hand and well, not a great combo...

You can find her work at her Etsy shop...https://www.etsy.com/shop/PrettyNett, which is where I bought this tutorial.

Isabella Lam's Trivoli Pendant...

Found in her new book "Beautiful Beadweaving"

I don't like my colors but I used what I had in beads. I'm so amazed at this piece and how she designed it. It was fun and easy to make.






Miriam Cielo Shimon a Soutache Artist...

She's amazing! You can see or buy her products at her etsy shop below...
This is her Carnival Soutache Earring tutorial made by me. I love the finished pieces from her but I don't like how my Soutache always turns out. It's sloppy looking...




If you want to see a lot of her artwork go here https://www.flickr.com/photos/cielodesign/

Be Still My Heart by Sabine Lippert...

Another beautiful cuff by Sabine Lippert. This is her elegant masterpiece...



She has wonderful kits and tutorials at http://www.trytobead.com/

I don't know why I did it, it just happened, and I made the columns different sizes for a little bit of a messy but artsy look...

Dream Catcher Tutorial by Regina Atkins...

This was published in Bead&Button magazine Dec 2014. I LOVED MAKING IT!!! The rope is an amazingly creative idea that I will use on other pieces of mine. This is my finished piece...



I really enjoyed making this. Thank you Regina!!!


Elizabethan Cuff by Helena Tang-Lim

Loved Helena's Elizabethan Cuff  as soon as I saw it, and knew I wanted to make one. So off to her Etsy shop to buy her tutorial. But alas, I had shitty beads, you have to have a lot of beads for this one and I settled for using what I had on hand. I will do one more of really nice beads. Here is mine...



Here is Helena's beautiful original...
