Incredibly creative and multitalented people, possibly the most gifted sign of them all in terms of ability in both music and the visual arts. Taurus lives a life of art-it literary is their life.
Taurus is too honest to play with your emotions. Never question the loyalty of these people. They will take it personally. If a Taurus feels like they are being taken for granted they will fade out of your life, just as quickly as they appeared.
Taurus likes to help others sort through they problems but doesn’t want anyone to help them when they have something going on. Taurus work in silence and make it look easy.
A Taurus is extremely generous sign. If there is something that you need and you let them know, they will make it happen. Taurus is a sign who hardly ever will lose hope and has fate that everything they do is either for the better or for a reason or meant to be.
This is the list of some crystals that are recommended for everyone who was born under this star sign.

How to make sea glass jewelry with glass seed beads

How to make sea glass jewelry with glass seed beads.

Sea glass is a glass pieces from the broken bottles and jars that had been worn smooth by the tumbling action of the sea waves against the shore. Ocean weaves drags the pieces of glass across the sand and stones, smoothing it and shaping in different shapes, creating frosted and worn surfaces.
how to make sea glass jewelry beach glass. Sea glass is so pretty that it deserves to be adorned.
Sea glass is so pretty that it deserves to be adorned. Use your most precious founded sea glass pieces to make a unique necklaces, earrings and bracelets.
There are many ways to make sea glass jewelry. Most common are:
  1. Wire wrapping. You would need 20gauge sterling silver, copper or gold-plated wire.
  2. Drilling. You would need Dremel drill and drilling press.
  3. Bezeling requires more training than drilling or wrapping sea glass.
My favorite way of making sea glass jewelry is bead weaving technique.
I like to incorporate in sea glass necklaces sea shells and drift wood pieces. Tu create this mixed necklace you will have to learn basic peyote stitch, circular and tubular peyote stitches.

The supplies I usually use for my sea glass jewelry:
  • Sea glass, beach stones
how-to-make-sea-glass-beach-stone-jewelry-with-seed-beads-ezartesa. Sea glass, beach stones
  • Driftwood
Wood has a grounding quality and it’s lightweight.
  • Sea shell
how to create sea glass jewelry with seed beads sea shell ezartesa
Some shells already have holes for stringing.
  • Natural Feathers
how-to-make-sea-glass-jewelry-with-sea-glass-feathers-ezartesa
  • Leather
I use leather for pendant bails and for clasps.
  • Cotton Cord
  • Cotton thread
  • Nylon beading thread (conditioned with beeswax).
  • Needles #12, #12 sharps
  • Scissors
  • E-6000 glue
  • Delica Glass Seed Beads
  • Rocailles seed beads
  • Beading foundation

  1. Usually I start by playing with different shapes of drift wood, beach stones, sea glass pieces till I create the desirable composition.

  1. Then I glue the chosen pieces to beading foundation: Put a dab of E-6000 glue on beading foundation, and then glue the material to the back (or around) of the piece of sea glass (beach stone, shell or driftwood).
  2. Set the sea glass (beach stone, shell or driftwood) aside and left the glue dry and cure for at least 4 hours (best would be 24 hours).
  3. Tie an overhand knot at the end of 2yd. (1.8m) of conditioned thread. Using a # 12 sharps needle, sew through the beading foundation fabric from back to front, next to the stone edge.

  1. Pick up six Delica Japanese seed beads and position them along the stone’s edge. Sew through the last three beads (figure 1). Continue working in beaded backstitch around the edge of the cab, adding an even number of beads (photo c).
  2. Using a regular beading needle and Delica seed beads, work in tubular, even-count peyote stitch around the ring. Changing seed bead colors for each round, continue adding rounds of peyote until the top edge of the cab is covered (photo d, e).
  3. Then I create a bail for pendant: usually I cut desirable piece of natural leather. Then I create gorgeous print/pattern from tiny glass seed beads.

Making Jewelry from Sea Glass with Interesting Materials: Seed Beads, Leather, Cotton Tassels, Driftwood, Feathers and Cotton Cord


Many
sea glass collectors simply choose to keep their treasures in jars, while others enjoy giving pieces to friends or relatives. I collect these frosted gems for my jewelry making projects and crafts. I love combining sea glass with tiny glass seed beads, leather, driftwood, shells, and feathers to form a beachy style Jewelry.

Making Jewelry From Sea Glass, Tutorial by Ezartesa.

What I love about the sea glass? There is no two identical pieces of sea glass. Every shape is unique and exiting! When I look for the quality pieces of sea glass for me is very important smoothness, absence of chips, shape and size. If I find a piece that’s still has a sharp edges or is not opaque, I just let it stay on the beach for more rolling.
cape cod sea glass
When I designing a piece of jewelry, I always start with the color combinations, shape and size of the sea glass. Then I decide what seed bead color palette will be, or what patter I need to create to enhance the beauty of sea glass.
unique-shape-sea-glass-necklace
I like using a natural leather for my jewelry base. Usually wider and longer leather strip is cut for the centerpiece, and two or four smaller pieces arranged around it.
Beaded Cotton Tassel Necklace Tutorial by Ezartesa
Beaded Cotton Tassel Necklace Tutorial by Ezartesa

Seed bead TUTORIAL: My favorite sea glass jewelry designs have incorporated handmade tassels, which are not difficult to make.
Step 1: Cut a winding board from heavy card stock, or cardboard; for the big tassel 6cm cardboard, for two small 4,5cm.
tassel-1
Step 2: Wind thread around board in loops until you reach desired fullness (as you work, you can change thread colors)
Step 3: Tie 5-inch thread into a tight knot around top of looped thread.

Step 4: Cut through looped ends (take it off board), and adjust it into tassel shape
Step 5: Cut a 12-inch length of thread to wrap tassel neck: Fashion 1 end of thread into a loop shape, then lay loop on tassel. Grasp the other end, and wrap it tightly around tassel and over the top of the loop to secure it. Wrap slowly, working from the top of the neck down, so neck threads lie evenly next to one another. As you wrap, ensure all the threads in the head and skirt are neatly in place. After wrapping neck, pass end of thread through loop and gently close loop, tucking ends into the head of the tassel. Trim tassel ends, a few threads at a time, to even them if necessary. On top of the tassel, cut the thread tales of too.
tassel-2

Step 6: Wash the tassels with shampoo, brush and dry.
tassel-3
I like to use natural feathers for my sea glass necklaces. I usually glue the feather to the middle of leather strip, and fold the other end of leather on top of feather. Then I work in flat, odd-count peyote stitch to make a strip form glass seed beads to put it on top of leather.

Cape Cod Beachcomber Beaded Jewelry Collection 2016

Combing the beaches there in Cape Cod has become one of my most favorite things to do. For a long time, I was collecting completely flawless and beautifully shaped pieces of sea glass, beach stones, driftwood, and feathers. My idea was to design one-of-a-kind beaded jewelry from the find objects on the beach.

When I design the jewelry peace, first I play around with textures, colors, and shapes. Then I think what color, and what kind of pattern I need to create of tiny seed beads to enhance the beauty of sea glass or beach shone.

In this Beachcomber collection I decided to use a warm brown color objects with cool blues, sea greens, and blacks with strong greens. These combinations give to my jewelry the soothing calm feeling of the seashore.
The style of this collection is casual, and artsy chic: a sleek, very well made pendants dangling from a woven cotton cord. I use natural leather as a base, and embellish it with tiny glass seed beads. Combination of leather and beadwork gives a rich texture to my one-of-a-kind hand beaded jewelry.
