Fashion Set By Seadbeady (7)

So pretty women are you planning for a party maybe? And what about your outfit?

Then maybe this set I made today could be just what you are looking for ๐Ÿ˜Š
Let me know what kind of party you are going to... Birthday Party ....Surprise Party.... Dinner Party or maybe a Garden Party ?

Or is it a dancing party maybe? I used to loooove dancing, sadly my body is already in a state of decay ..... haha ok that's somewhat ecaggerated. ๐Ÿ˜€ But in my twenties I followed dancing classes for 4 years. I learned to do the samba, chachacha, quickstep, tango, disco, jive, rumba, ....

My favourite dance was the Rumba.....a dance of seduction in which the woman dominates the man, and lures him with her sensual hip movements.

In case you are not going to be able to do the rumba..... this set I chose could surely help you seduce the man you would want to dominate. I am sure that if we put our minds to it we could make women into the dominant species ๐Ÿ˜œ

Hope you enjoyed reading..........Until next time........Have a nice day.........or night ๐Ÿ˜

    Seadbeady's Finds on Etsy - Dogs

    Some time ago I searched for some finds on Cats on Etsy especially for all the cat lovers. But I can't keep the dog lovers wait any longer for their dog finds. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Seems like the dog was the first domesticated species. An archeological record of 14.700 years ago shows the first dog remains buried beside humans.

    Over time, the dog has developed into hundreds of breeds with a great degree of variation.
    According to the World Canine Organization there are 339 dog breeds at the moment. That is quite some number, don't you think so ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

    As you all know they are very social animals. They are very playful but can easily be trained. And off course they are very devoted and loyal to us. That is why they make such great pets.

    For most people they are more than just pets. They are loyal companions who wag their tails to show us their emotions. And lick our hands and faces to show us their affection.

    So especially for the dog lovers this time some Etsy finds on Dogs

    Bones, bones, bones personalised dog tag - Paw charm pet ID tag

    custom pet portrait, original watercolor painting

    I Love my Siberian Husky Mug personalised | Different colours available

    Personalized Dog Bowl, Jack Russell Ceramic Dog Bowl

    Personalized Dog Blanket, Dog Gift, Dog Lovers

    Leather dog collar, FREE ID TAG, Plain collar, Customised leather collar

    Dog Raincoat + neck warmer - Dog Jacket - Custom Dog Coat

    Sterling Silver dog earrings / dog jewellery / dog lover gift

    Crazy Dog Lady Coffee Mug - dog mug - dog lover gift

    Greyhound gift for wine lover gift Greyhound pillow cover

    Hope you enjoyed reading .........Until next time .........Have a great day

    Confessions of a Seadbeadaholic part 6

    So you might have thought that was the end of my story.....sorry to say but you are wrong. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Actually my first real beadworks had a flaw in them, that I discovered only a few weeks later. In the beginning I used a kind of cheap nylon thread. But it didn't last cause after a while it disintegrated spontaneously. I found out the hard way when colleagues who had bought my jewelry came back to me.

    So in my honesty I warned other colleagues about this flaw, cause already at that time I wanted my customers to be satisfied, and not be left with their broken pieces. After a while I even started getting their jewelry pieces they bought in stores in order to repair them. I wasn't that fond of it but no is a word that seems so hard to say sometimes.

    I couldn't just leave it at that so I started looking for books on beading to make sure I would get it right next time. So I came across this book of the Bead & Button magazine.

    And I confess I fell in love with it. Such a great book for beaders. And all the techniques where in there. The most popular ones like brick stitch, herringbone stitch, peyote stitch, right angle weave and many more. And an explanation on materials to use for making beadwork. This was exactly what I needed.

    This is one of the bracelets I got from this book that I still make, with an embroidered vine.

    So halfway 2014 I reopened my Etsy Seadbeady shop. And I must say that it was not a complete disaster this time. I did sell about 1 or on a good month 2 pieces. But I was still happy with that. Cause it meant being able to buy some more supplies without having to feel guilty about it.

    But enough for today ......... Hope you enjoyed reading .........Until next time ..........Have a great day

    Fashion Set By Seadbeady (6)

    Actually we were planning to go to the zoo on wednesday. But since it's gonna be a rainy day we postponed it. I can't stand the rain - another song - but it's true. If I had a say in it, I would only let it rain at night just enough to keep everything growing. But I suppose it's not really up to me ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Here's a quote for you by Bob Marley: Some people feel the rain. Others just get wet.

    I suppose I am one of those that gets wet - but that's only when I don't have an umbrella with me ๐Ÿ˜

    This is what Wikipedia says about Rain:

    Rain is liquid water in the form of droplets that have condensed from atmospheric water vapor and then precipitated - that is, become heavy enough to fall under gravity.

    So now that we all got a little smarter again we can start with todays Fashion Set ๐Ÿ˜„

    ASOS CURVE Jumper in Block Stripe for 35 €

    ASOS CURVE Skater Mac for 59 €

    ASOS CURVE Mini Blush Strap Watch for 16 €

    Yours Clothing Lace Bow Body for 48 €

    Yes everything for the curvy woman among us. That is including me off course. I am not sure if it's me gaining weight or it's because my clothes keep shrinking in the washing machine. Or maybe it's the leprechauns that keep stitching up my clothes when I am firmly asleep at night????

    Let me know if you have the same problem - and you know what's causing it ๐Ÿ˜

    But that's it for today........ no more whining from my part .........Hope you enjoyed reading 

    Until tomorrow

    Seadbeady's Finds on Etsy - Flower Photographs

    Do you know the song If a picture paints a thousand words

    Such a wonderful song and great lyrics. That's what I was thinking of when I was making this blog for you. Don't you just love flowers and pictures of flowers? Especially the close-ups like these I found on Etsy today.

    Flowers are not only admired for their beauty but some varieties are very much loved for their amazing scents. Like roses, Jasmine, Violets, Lillies, and so much more beautiful scents. I bet everyone must have used some kind of flower perfume one time or another.

    I even read the book series Flowers in the Attic by Virginia Andrews. I am not one who reads a lot, but I just couldn't keep away from this series. And I cried my eyes out, not literally off course.

    But as you might have read I am much more in to beading lately and since recently blogging too. So here are those gorgeous flower pictures I have been rattling about. ๐Ÿ˜

    Seadbeady's Wedding Jewelry Shop

    Ahah did you miss me - no - maybe just a little bit

    Had my granddaughter over yesterday, she's 1.5 years old,  and I was so tired but fulfilled at the same time. She is so adorable and super energetic ๐Ÿ˜Š

    Actually I wanted to tell you about my new Etsy shop. I decided to take the wedding jewelry out of my Seadbeady shop and put it in a new shop SeadbeadyBridesJewel

    So that the beautiful brides to be don't have to search through the huge pile of listings from my Seadbeady shop. Haven't got loads in it at the moment. Still in the moving process. So at the moment some are in my Seadbeady and some have moved to my new shop. It's a time consuming process cause I am updating them at the same time. I know it's my own fault ๐Ÿ˜…

    Here are some items I already moved to the new Bridal shop:

    White Bridal Jewelry for Her Statement Gemstone Bead Necklace

    Summer Wedding Layered Bracelets, Beadwork Statement Jewelry

    White Beadwork Jewelry, White Wife Gift, Layers Beads Jewelry for Her

    Elegant Jewelry Beige Necklace for Summer Wedding

    Summer Wedding White Beadwork Jewelry, Seed Bead Necklace

    At the moment I have 9 items in my shop - but no worries I will make it to more than 30 in a few days - so keep track of my new shop if you are a bride to be. I have a lot of unique one of a kind jewelry pieces that only you could be wearing on your wedding.

    Hope you enjoyed .........Until next time.........Have a great weekend.........

    Fashion Set By Seadbeady (5)

    Today's fashion set is on how you could pair up a pair of Sneakers.

    Sneakers were primarily designed for sports or any form of physical exercise. Nowadays they are a part of fashion and used for everyday wear.

    Originally the term sneakers referred to how quiet the rubber soles were on the ground, in contrast to the hard leather sole shoes that were much more noisier. With Sneakers you could 'sneak up' on someone.

    They have also become an important part of hip hop and rock 'n roll cultures since the 1970s. Some artist sign huge contracts with major brands such as Nike, Adidas or Puma.

    Here's the set I made for you today - Boohoo is a fashion brand and in no way meant to scare you  ๐Ÿ˜œ

    Boohoo Kayla Flamingo Embroidered Halter Crop for 20 €

    Boohoo Katie Crop Ponte Edge To Edge Blazer for 17 €

    Boohoo Helen Ripped Hem Denim Mini Skirt for 25 €

    Boohoo Sophie Floral Embroidered Trainer for 25 €

    Boohoo Hope Statement Strap Mini Tote Cross Body Bag for 27 €

    Boohoo Clear Lip Gloss for 5.08 €

    All very affordable items so that they are accessible to everyone. I know we are not all bathing in wealth - well at least I am not - but it is said that money doesn't make you happy. 
    I am not so sure about that - today I went to a store with bead supplies and bought for over 200 € and it did make me happy you know. It's good though that I only do that once or twice a year lol ๐Ÿ˜€

    Hope you enjoyed my post today.......Until next time.......Have a great day

    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 ๐Ÿ˜
    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 ๐Ÿ˜Ž

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

    And I made of lot of pieces with them. Like this one that I made in 2013 ๐Ÿ˜€

    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

    Seadbeady's Finds on Etsy - Girls Dresses

    Time for some more Etsy finds. Today it's all about Girl Dresses.

    Aren't they super cute those little girl dresses. I have a sweet granddaughter of one and a half and I just love seeing her in a dress. And I am sure all you grandmothers are like me when you go shopping for clothes. You have to tell yourself noooo this time I am gonna buy something for myself. But I know those cute dresses are so irresistable.

    Ah yes a bit of history first maybe. In the Ancient world both men and women wore a similar garment that resembled a dress and was in general called tunic.

    From this tunic the dress developed into cassocks, worn by both female and male priests

    And into Fustanella, worn by soldiers

    An ancient Greek Tunic inspired an early twentieth gown designer to create the Delphos gown.

    In the 19th century Dresses increased dramatically to the hoopskirt and crinoline supported styles.
    Since the 1970's, no one dress type or lenght has dominated fashion for long. Short or ankle-lenght they all appeared side by side in the fashion magazines and catalogs.

    Nowadays you can find a lot of girls dresses that are very much influenced by trends in adult wear.
    But I have bored you enough with history - I know - you wanna see those cute little dresses I chose for you ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
