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:

Blue Glass Pendant

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


Light Green Glass Pendant

Puffed coin of light green lampwork, silver-filled glass, wrapped in copper wire, plus a small, heart-stamped ring of copper-colored metal.


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.

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.


Green flower vase (FIMO on glass)

This is a glass bottle covered with green-coloured FIMO millefiori slices. Partly transparent, so when backlit with a little desk lamp, it looks marvelous.


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.


Pink polymer clay (FIMO) covered glass bowl

Big, round glass bowl covered with pink and blue millefiori canes slices.
Most probably will be used as part of a lamp.
