Beading Babes Project 5

I've been quiet as far as my blog goes, but I have been busy beading. I recently joined the Beading Babes, and online beading group. I've made the two projects for this round. Both are by designer Helena Tang-Lim and both incredibly easy to make. 

As always the most time consuming part of any project is locating the necessary pieces and choosing the colours. I found some coin shaped beads at Yashmacreations.
My first choice were perhaps a tad smaller than the pattern suggested, but turned out to 
be a little more difficult to find tila beads I was happy to pair them with. So they're sitting awaiting another
project for now. Anyway, I've really happy with how my necklace turned out - below.

The other piece was an easy and fast project to make up. I love how satisfying that was. It really does tempt me to make it in many other colours. Here's the image of my version of the Four Leaf Clover Cuff - below.

I hope you enjoy viewing these pieces. Please take the time to look at the other pieces created by the other Beading Babes.



  1. Hi Heather,
    Your necklace and cuff are gorgeous! I love the color palettes for both pieces. Are the disks in the necklace gemstones? They are so pretty.

  2. Wow! I love your beadwork! Come by my blog for a little giveaway ending on June 25th.

  3. Both of those are just beautiful. I love the colors you chose. The gold pearls in the bracelet go so well with the silver and blue. Wonderful work.

  4. Thanks for the comments. The disk beads are actually Czech glass. ;-)

  5. Beautiful work Heather. I absolutely adore your Nefertiti necklace - those disc beads are gorgeous.

    Thanks so much for taking part in Beading Babes. I look forward to seeing you for Project 6!


  6. I love the disc beads and the colors you used with them. The perfect setting for them! I can see how the Four Leaf Clover can make you want to experiment with different color combos but the one you chose is very nice!

  7. Nice work. I especially like the coin beads you have used in EON.

  8. Nice work I especially like the necklaces it is so elegant!

  9. Great work Heather. I love the colors of the discs with the Tilas you chose.
