First Russian Spiral Rope

I have discovered a new hobby of beading and find it to be quite relaxing. Lately I have been on a kick to try new beading techniques. Last month I tried a new beading stitch called Russian Spiral and made a rope necklace. To top it off I paired in with a beaded owl pendant that I got from a tutorial from Etsy. The owl design is by Assza and you can find her Etsy shop here. The owl was really detailed and after re-trying sections that I kept messing up on, I finally finished it and was so happy with the way he turned out!


The rope necklace was the perfect compliment to this little guy!


The necklace is done entirely with black beads and finished off with a rhodium plated tierracast toggle clasp and measures about 18.5" in length.


Needless to say, I am addicted to russian spiral necklaces now:)
Thanks for stopping by and have a great crafty day!

CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge #117

Welcome back to another week at CAS(E) this Sketch! This will be my last challenge as a design team member. I've been finding it harder to find time to make cards and keep up with blogging because I have been busier with work and making jewellery, but hopefully I'll find time to participate with a challenge once and a while :) There is a great sketch to try this week, check it out...


I went with a easter card and one layer. I stamped eggs from a Close to My Heart stamp set I have in various shades of blue and yellow and then added an embossed frame around the edge.


We would love to have you play along with us this week. It's been great sharing inspiration with you for the past couple of years!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great crafty day!
