Maddy's Fancy Cellini Spiral Green Necklace by Jewelrybyjane29

Maddy's Fancy Cellini Spiral Green Necklace by Jewelrybyjane29

This is my very first Cellini Spiral.  It took me many many unbillable hours to make this.  Unbillable because it was my very first and it took me longer than normal because I got distracted and had to go back many times because I would put the wrong color on and would notice until I got further along .   At this point not sure if I will attempt another one for a while, but probably will because it is a challenge to me and I love to conquer challenges.

Spring Breeze Flower Garden by Jewelrybyjane29 on Etsy


The April Beadweavers challenge is about spring and the warm breezes. We were to create something that looks as bright, delicate and gentle as the first warm breezes of spring. 

When I think of spring I think about the first flowers of the season, poking their way up through the fresh ground that was once frozen, and about their fragrant scent. That is why I created this spring flower garden enclosed by the lattice fence. The fence is made using Delica Rainbow green/yellow seed beads and adorned with Dyna-mite 8/0 beads. The flowers are made using the French bead and wire method. 

The bracelet measures 6 1/2 x 2 1/2 inches 

This is an original Jewelry by Jane 29 Design.

The View From My Front Door

The View From My Front Door.

Yuck! While all of the outdoor enthusiasts are thrilled of this site, including all of the snowmobileers that will soon be zooming down the field, I do not particulary like the site. If it would only disappear as fast as it came it might be all right. But no, it has to stay around for a month or two and make the roads muddy and messy.

I know I should be happy more time to create, but I cannot do any creating in this atmosphere. Why you ask? I like solitude my creative mood is the greatest when I am alone in quiet. Certainly not quiet now, everyone is stuck at home, even the animals have chosen today to be frisky inside where it is dry.

Oh well, and this shall pass too! Someday!

 Did you know I usually make jewelry that I would wear? I believe this is because somewhere in my mind I think if they don't sell I can wear them>lol    I need to broaden my outlook and design pieces that are a little more out there. 

I get asked how I design the pieces.  Well, usually I see a color pallet on a fabric or even nature, flowers mostly.  I also  see a beads or combination of beads that I absolutely love.  I leave them sitting on my bench until my mind sees the piece then I start making it.  Sometimes they sit for a short time but, sometimes they hang around for quite a while, but eventually they do get made.  And then those that don't get made and I loose the vision get put into a box with other lost visions.   I do have quite a collection of lost visions.  Then one day when I'm looking through my stash of beads I come upon a lost vision that gets reborn and gets made.  The above piece is one of those beads that have been sitting around for a very long time and I finally used them.

What happens to all of those tiny seed beads that you drop?

I am wondering what does happen to all of those tiny seed beads that fly into the air or drops on the floor.  Because I do not have an adequate work space right now, I am often using a TV tray in the living room.

The story behind that is;  Right at the moment my family and I are staying with my mother and I am giving her care so she doesn't have to go into a nursing home.  I have a wonderful husband that was willing to give up our rather nice life in the Ca desert and move to NH just to care for my mother until she passes.  Enough about that!

Now to get back onto the subject at hand.  I've found beadweaving has helped me to relax so I do it every moment I have free.  But those tiny beads do get away from me.  Many occasions when I thought I had enough to finish an item I was making only to find I need one or two more beads to finish.  That is when I dive onto the floor and crawl around searching the carpet.  My dog and cat think I am nuts, but oh where are those beads that fly off the needle!  After a while I will give up looking and go order more, only to find the missing beads days later, popping up from the carpet, under the cushion of the sofa, or in my pocket.  Yes, I have even found them in my pocket and in my shoe.
