Confessions of a Seadbeadaholic part 5

Last time I told you about my Fimo episode. Haven't made any more beads lately, but that doesn't mean I will never make them again. Never say never, that's something my husband always says. Actually he says it in Dutch "zeg nooit nooit" .

In my surfing I also discovered the art of beading. Surfing on the internet off course, although I did surf ages ago. Well not that long but I was 22 when I attended a Windsurfing Camp. Nope I am no longer a spring chicken. Ok if you really wanna know I am 54. Eek yes stop reading all the rubbish of this stupid old lady haha.

So now for the ones that are still interested 😁
Here is one channel on youtube that blew my mind away:
Really you should go and check it out. And I also discovered a magazine that really inspired me
You might as well check that out at the same time 😎

At first I started with pretty cheap beads I found in the Veritas (Belgian shop) from Gütermann size 9

And I made of lot of pieces with them. Like this one that I made in 2013 😀

The necklace wasn't too bad but a terrible picture again. It's only since 2 years that I have been working hard on improving my pictures. Let me show you one that's in my Etsy shop now and a bit similar to this one.


You could say that there is a slight difference between those pictures. I know what shop to pick if I had to choose between these two pictures. Wouldn't you??

But at the time I didn't see it, don't ask me why? Maybe I was a little too subjective?
So I opened an Etsy shop, thinking my pieces would be good enough to sell.

Eh noooo, off course not. So after half a year of waiting for my first sale I decided to close my shop again.

And I am ending my blogpost too for today.......Until next time.......Hope you enjoyed reading
