How to make a beaded cover of a ball ornament

Narrated in Polish, but I think the video may anyway help someone to start at least.

How to start:

How to add more wire and finish the cover:

Teal Glass Pendant

And the fourth glass coin pendant, this time it’s rich teal, with copper wire and Miyuki beads.

Teal Glass pendant


Blue Glass Pendant

Rich blue, silver-lined glass coin wrapped in copper wire with dark gold Miyuki square beads.


Brown Lampwork Glass Pendant in Copper

On my holiday visit to my parents I got some little craft shopping done and bought a few very pretty lampwork glass puffed coins in nice, rich colors. All well matching with copper wire and dark copper/gold beads.
The beads are Miyuki square “dark gold” and wires are 0,8mm and 0,3mm.


Team of beaded bacteriophages

Basing on the same design as this and this, a set of four pendants.


Dragon peyote

This is a peyote dragon, the same design used twice on different sizes of beads.

“Gold” background dragon is 2mm beads on a non-flexible, thin fishing line.
Unfortunately, the “gold” rubbed away during the work, that’s why the outlines of the dragon (which were supposed to be darker than the background) are now invisible, which makes the poor creature look somewhat gaunt.

Red backgroud dragon is done in 3,2mm beads, very regular and lasting, on thick and strong sewing thread. Makes it much softer in structure than the one done with the fishing line. Done as a birthday present for a friend.

Design is my own.


Santa Claus, beaded

Two beaded figures of Santa Claus, done for commission.


DNA Earrings (beaded)

These are DNA earrings, made basing on a project Genetic Jewels. I carefully paired together the colors, to make sure there will be no – gasp – genetic errors.


Dragon – beading, peyote

A small beaded picture of a dragon. My own design. Beads are “nonames”, 3,5mm.


Dolphin earrings

Long hanging hemalyke and glass earrings.
The little cubes are Miyuki Square “metallic hematite” beads.
The dolphins are Hemalyke ™ charms.

All together a bit on the heavy side, but wearable and really pretty.
