8th Reveal - lavender, coffee & dragonfly

Welcome to the 8th Bead Soup Blog Party Reveal at my blog! This is the fourth time when I'm participating, but I'm still as much excited as I was two years ago. So let's get started!

Wreszcie mogę Wam pokazać co przygotowałam na ósme już Bead Soup Blog Party. To już czwarty raz, kiedy biorę udział w tej zabawie, ale nadal jest to tak samo ekscytujące jak dwa lata temu. 
Actually the necklace you're watching right now was the last piece of my bead soup. From the beginning I had had no idea what to do with the beautiful jasper, which is really big and because of that it's a bit out of my comfort zone. For two or three weeks, everyday I sat by the table and put a bead here or there. I also managed to do a little beading tie (and it's quite simple). I know that I'm not a master in emroidery, but it looks pretty and in some way I'm proud of it.

Na pierwszy ogień idzie koralikowy naszyjnik. Został zrobiony jako ostatni, ponieważ już od początku miałam problem z wpasowaniem go do jakiegoś projektu. Gigantyczny jaspis sprawił mi masę kłopotów, ale ostatecznie udało mi się go skończyć na czas. Nauczyłam się też jak zrobić krawatkę z koralików dzięki instrukcji Catheriny z Miracolo Piccolo. Jak się okazało, jest to proste i przyjemne. Nie wiem czy w najbliższym czasie zajmę się jeszcze oprawą tak dużego kamienia. Momentami była to droga przez mękę. Mistrzem nie jestem, więc widać moje braki w technice.
Now it's time for another piece of jewellery. Corrie send me sooo many beads (you can see the whole package here), because she hadn't been sure how many seed beads I normally use for a crochet rope necklace. Well...I still have tones of them. I can even make three pieces similar to that one. Thanks a lot Corrie!
I keep wearing this necklace. It matches to my clothes (even to my red dress) and I couldn't resist this cute ceramic dragonfly :)
Working on it had been an incredible pleasure. I hope you'll love it as I do (and as does my mum who wants take it away from me).

Teraz czas na szydełkowy naszyjnik. Corrie wysłała mi naprawdę dużą pakę toho i miyuki (możecie wszystko to zobaczyć w tym poście), ponieważ jak sama powiedziała, nie ma pojęcia ile koralików potrzeba na naszyjnik. No cóż...z tego co dostałam to jeszcze ze trzy miksy by powstały. Mam się czym bawić na długi czas :)
Zauważyłam też, że często sięgam po niego do szkatułki. Pasuje do wielu rzeczy (nawet do mojej czerwonej sukienki).
Nawlekanie i szydełkowanie tego miksu było ogromną przyjemnością. Mam nadzieję, że się Wam spodoba tak jak i mnie (no i mojej mamie, która od dłuższego czasu na niego spogląda).
Next it's a double fun. Two-in-one thing. Necklace and a bracelet. I picked some pearls and bicones from Corrie, added crystals, made a french plait from embroidery floss and voilà! I think that french braids are so fancy and I'm going to make more of them soon. 

Teraz czas na mulinowe dwa w jednym. Tak bardzo podobały mi się te perły, że musiałam je upchnąć w jakiejś biżuterii. Powstał taki oto naszyjnik z możliwością założenia go w wersji bransoletkowej. Jeżeli ktoś lubi zawijane bransolety to idealnie :)
Spodobało mi się też, robienie mulinowych warkoczy. Pewnie w najbliższym czasie, kiedy setny raz w tygodniu zawędruję do pasmanterii, w moje ręce wpadnie kilka nowych kolorów.
Some time ago I had made my first peyote stitch bracelet and this my second attempt. It took so long to finish it, because the clasp is about 3cm wide and you know the Toho 11/0 beads are quite small. And of course I had to share my time for school and other things. Are there more students in here? Let me know in a comment how you reconcile it, cause sometimes I want to flee before all deadlines.

Jakiś czas temu pokazywałam Wam moją pierwszą bransoletę robioną ściegiem peyote. Wspomniałam też coś o drugiej bransolecie. No i to jest właśnie to "cudo". Robiłam ją w przerwach między nauką, a wszelkimi innymi sprawami, więc zajęła mi trochę czasu. Już nawet nie wspomnę o tym, że robiłam ją z jedenastek, które są maleńkie. Strach pomyśleć co będzie, jak zachce mi się taką z piętnastek zrobić. 
Last but not least it's a small pendant that I made from polymer clay in my techniques - cernit soutache. I heard that some people think it's a soutache embroidery so I just want to say a few words of explanation. It's just a faux soutache made from polymer clays called Cernit and I named my jewellery like this. 
This pendant has two beautiful pearls from Corrie, some polymer clay ornaments, seed beads and a silver little tie. As you can see, the measure is rather small. Thiny pendant in a pastel colours. Let me know what you think.

Na koniec mały wisior z sutaszu cernitowego (Dla nowych czytelników - z masy termoutwardzalnej, żadnych igieł, haftowania, sznureczków. Wszystko ręcznie formowane i lepione). Perełki tak mi się podobały, że i tutaj je dodałam. Nadal mam jeszcze zapas kremowych i granatowych, więc może niedługo coś z nich powstanie.
Thanks for watching and reading my BSBP's report :)
Visit my partner Corrie and other participants.

Dziękuję Wam za dotrwanie do końca relacji, chyba nigdy w żadnym biżuteryjnym poście, nie dodałam tylu zdjęć :)
Koniecznie zajrzyjcie do Corrie oraz na blogi pozostałych uczestników.

  1. Hi Agata,

    I had no idea you were such a seed bead expert - those are beautiful! The little dragonfly at the back of the crochet rope necklace is the absolute best idea- I can just imagine that with a really nice evening dress.

    I'd never have believed you were stumped over the jasper focal, either, not when the colours and stitching work so beautifully together.

    1. Thank you so much Sarah. I love beading and I just want to be better and better so I keep trying.
      The dragonfly is also my favourite thing about my bead soup :)

  5. Peyote - moja ulubiona technika :) Świetny dobór kolorków, sama bym taką bransoletkę chciała ;) A wielki naszyjnik jest cudowny, ja nie widzę w nim żadnych potknięć, a raczej perfekcyjne hafciki. Super!

  6. My comment didn't seem to come through. You have done an amazing job Agata and your embroidery is beautiful. I love how you have used the colours together and I love your use of the dragonfly. Makes me happy to see it used in a piece :-).

  11. Lovely colours and such detail. x

  12. Mimo, że jaspis sprawiał Ci kłopoty, wyszedł pięknie - bardzo mi się podoba. Sznur też jest ciekawy, akcent z ważką był świetnym pomysłem :o)
    Nigdy nie widziałam warkoczy z muliny, stąd bransoletko-naszyjnik tez przykuł moją uwagę. Perły są faktycznie cudne.
    Peyotowa bransoleta i wisiorek też są fajne, także nie rozumiem czemu napisałam u mnie na blogu, że Twoje dzieło jest słabe? Zresztą, najważniejsze jest, że się dobrze bawiłaś :o)
    Pozdrawiam!

  19. On the student stuff. I don't tend to do stuff that requires a deadline because of it. I do make beading my reward. I schedule it in.

  20. absolutely gorgeous! you seed bead people never cease to amaze me!

  21. Gorgeous pieces: I love each and every one of them. I must admit I was smitten by your very last piece, the faux soutache: it looks adorable (and the colours are so beautiful!). Lovely work, keep it up (and I know it takes a lot to balance the studies with the creative moments, but the art will help you in many aspects, maybe set aside weekly slots for it :) )

    1. Sometimes I just thing I won't make it and put aside my creative work, and try to focus at school projects. BUT handmade is really relaxing so I can't leave it for too long :D

  25. Oh - the faux soutache speaks to me. So pretty. And the necklace/bracelet is such a clever idea. You have managed to do more than seed bead - you took up the challenge.

  27. I love bead crochet and you do it so well, beautiful necklace. I also think your faux soutache is so beautiful. Beautiful pieces.

    ReplyDelete
  28. All the pieces are beautifully made and color coordinated! I would even dare wear the cute dragonfly pendant to the front and the crocheted rope is one more thing that can make me look more seriously into beading. Faux soutache - how great to learn new things and it is so subtle. Love the necklace/bracelet piece with this gorgeously colored braid, I will certainly remember this!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I love every piece you made, such a versatile use of your lovely soup!

    ReplyDelete
  30. You are really talented, each piece is so interesting but I have a thing for crocheted ropes, so I must say that one is my favorite-also the bead colors are so well mixed and give a special texture to the rope.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Beautiful! I love hte first focal so much, they're all stunning but I would totally wear that first piece and I don't usually go for seed beads. Really beautiful job and a great use of color.

  32. I'm really in love with all you have done with your soup ...

    ReplyDelete
  42. I love your work, the first pendant is actually perfect, discreet, yet elegant and with attitude!
    The crocheted rope is very beautiful and the tiny dragonfly adds the perfect finish to it, It looks so great, you can actually wear it up front as well! Love the bracelet, even if it's your second time, you did wonderful! The braided necklace is so stylish, I love it!!! And the faux soutache is so delicate, well done!!

  43. Hi Agata, You should be proud of the jasper necklace it is beautiful. Your crocheted rope is wonderful. I like the French braid and it gives me an idea for a piece I am making. Good job on your first peyote piece. Your cernit soutache is FABULOUS. It is my favorite piece. I have doing soutche next on my things to try list. I have never seen anyone do it with clay before. Brilliant idea.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Truly fabulous designs. The bead embroidery you did for the jasper stone is gorgeous and the colors you chose are perfect. And I absolutely adore the polymer clay soutache. Wonderful idea.
