I have recently gotten back into making beaded and sequined ornaments. It’s something I used to do all the time and then making jewelry and doing all the things I’ve been doing lately I got out of the habit of making them and so I decided to get back to what I really love!!
Back when I started making beaded inset. Items I didn’t have very many beads or sequins to choose from. Nowadays, however, there is are so many to choose from.
I tried a new ornament I’ve never done based on some vintage ones I found it at a yard sale that didn’t have backs on them. So I made to the first one didn’t come out good and I figured out how to make it look right into the second one. The next set I did were two Christmas trees a traditional green one, and then I use I tried a new ornament I’ve never done based on some vintage ones I found at a yard sale that didn’t have backs on them. So I made to the first one , I was not happy wit it , it didn’t come out good , did not look round , and then I figured out how to make it look right on the second one. The next set I did were two Christmas trees a traditional green one, and then fir the second one I used some vintage blue metallic, and some red metallic sequins I’ve had for close to 30 years. I added some blue silver lined beads I have also had for 30 years !! I did layering of the sequins for the red ornaments. I am happy with how they came out.
I plan on doing dozens more but wanted to share with you what I have done so far !!
I will be doing a video on my YouTube channel showing how I make these in the next week or two. I just want to have more made up before I do it!
My YouTube channel is called Stephies beads and Baubles!
