Red poppy rope beaded necklace and earrings jewelry set

Hi all, Have been through hard times lately and to take things easier decided to try crochet with seed beads. Found online gorgeous necklaces and bracelets but didn't have any idea how to make such beautiful pieces of jewellery. Floral patterns caught my eye especially ones with red poppies as red poppy symbolizes remembrance of those who died in war. In Ukraine red poppy is also widely used in traditional folk embroidery and paintings. I used the pattern created by Helgla to make a beautiful jewellery beaded set with red poppies. The pattern can be found here The bead rope has 22 seed beads in circumference, one rapport (a repetitive motif) consists of 61 rows and 1349 beads in two shades of green, three shades of red, yellow, white and black. Instead of white background I made a black one.


If you are a crocheter I suggest give it a go with seed beads to create such a beauty. Thanks Helgla!

Union Jack friendship bracelet

Recently started a new hobby - making friendship bracelets. It sounds like a great tradition to give bracelets to friends to make their dreams come true. One of the first friendship bracelets that I've made was one with the Union Jack flag. Perfect accessory for summer to show you are proud to be British.


If you are interested in making bracelets yourself I would recommend visiting this site which has a huge variety of patterns and tutorials suitable for everyone.

Crochet snowflakes

Christmas is just round the corner and it's time to get tree decorations ready for the festive season. I have finished my crochet snowflakes to decorate my own Christmas tree. Also they are available for purchase on etsy.
Snowflakes are stiffened with a fabric stiffener and will stay nice and firm even till the next Christmas.

The Remebrance/Veterans Day Red Poppy

The red remembrance/veterans poppy is an emblem of Remembrance/Veterans Day due to the red colour as a symbol for the blood spilled in the war. We wear it to remember the members of the Armed Forces who have died in the line of duty.
