Lets Have Some Privacy Please!!!

This weeks theme over at Every Inchie Monday is "Privacy".  Privacy is something that everyone wants and everyone also wants to know why everyone else wants it, right?  I mean gossip and Hollywood and even whispers about the neighbors.  Isn't that how it always goes.  Well, the first thought I had for privacy was a lock on a locker.  So I decided that was what I would make.  I used 3 colors of delicas.  Hope you like it.


Also this last week I made a bangle bracelet using a new stitch, well new to me.  It is a Cellini spiral, I used 4 different sizes of beads.  A 15/0 yellow, 11/0 in red and orange,  8/0 in blue and green and 6/0 in topaz.  






For those who don't know the differences in seed beads.  Here is a quick chart.


I really loved making this bangle.  I will for sure make another one!!!

Dont forget to fly on over to EIM and check out all the awesome work by the talented ladies, and have a blessed and beady week.

  2. Beautiful lock! And yes, feel same as Chrissie - the bracelet is breathtaking. And thanks for the seed bead guide. Just yesterdays was looking on eBay for some seed beads to use in embroidery.

  3. Your inchie is, as always, a marvel. I adore Cellini spirals and yours is beautiful. I haven't mastered it yet, but you've inspired me to try again. Unfortunately I can no longer use the really small seed beads (vision, shaky hands, difficulty in finding the eye of that shinny needle, a.k.a. older age -- I refuse to just use old), but I think its the 6's and 8's that really make this pattern work Thanks for the chart..

    1. Thanks Kia, i feel the same about the bracelet,and I dont really like the 6's. But I knew I had to add them to give it the peak it needed. and just to let you know that they make those magnifying glasses. Never get old! LOL you're welcome abut the chart.
