Bead Me Up, Scotty

By Twistie

I love beads. They can be strung together in so many different ways, each of which brings beauty and grace to a person or a place. For instance, this rather spectacular 3-D choker of apple blossoms would make the woman who wears it stand out in any crowd as someone interesting.

But maybe you’re not a pink kind of girl. I know I’m not! But I am all about purple, so this lilac choker grabs my attention, not least because of how it’s worn:

If you like these, or if they intrigue you enough to make you want to see more, head on over to Beading With Vavara. You’ll find the kits for both these chokers and dozens of other pieces of beaded jewelry and amulet bags. Whether you’re a beginner or an expert, there’s a pattern you can do. There are also books on technique available.

But what if you don’t bead jewelry? That’s okay! Vavara’s got you covered there, too, with finished pieces for sale.

Not feeling very flush? Don’t worry. There are also free patterns available to download.

Mmm… pretty.

    Pretty stuff. I’m not a beeder, but that lilac necklace is so gorgeous!

    I’m not a beader, either, but I love that lilac necklace, too. Maybe it’s time to try something new.
