Embracing pink

Hello,

Nanno Nanno, Mork calling Olson๐Ÿ˜Ž..... haha. Contact with bead lovers please!

I love๐Ÿ’—pink and it's soooooo not obvious in the meantime, I think๐Ÿ˜‹! And I often wear pink around my arms well. So that makes a bridge to the title of my blogpost today: "Embracing pink". How original I am huh ๐Ÿ˜Pink is my favorite color, and has been all my life! I just love this gorgeous color forever!๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒทI am so boring and predictable actually, hehe.

This is a floral charm bracelet I created recently. I only used pink and warm gold colors this time. I had this little box in my stash filled with gold coin charms and stumbled upon it as going through my bead stash and it inspired me immediately to go make this 'priceless' floral charm bracelet despite all the money that's hanging on it, he he. I'm totally hooked on those pink acrylic bead flowers, by the way. I once bought those in a textile discounter here in the Netherlands. Although they are made of the cheap acrylic material and they actually were meant for kids I just adore them! I still consider myself a kid, so...... there you go! I bought them in several different colors and use them a lot in earrings, dangles and bracelets. This bracelet is fully made with using eyepins, no chain involved.

I hope you found some inspiration again and that you like my floral charm bracelet. On to the next creative splash! Enjoy the day!

I am that girl

Hi there,

Here I am again! ๐Ÿ˜‹

I always find it hard to write an interesting blogpost that matches the eyecandy I want to show off!  Of course the art speaks for itself, but to share only pictures is so boring on the other hand, I think. So.......... I will try to do my best, haha.

I have been through hell the past 30 years and as a result I have become a bit speechless and numb, so I guess that's why it's hard to speak and write. ๐Ÿ˜ข My heart is blocked and broken and I am working hard to reopen it and find peace.

Yes yes, I am that girl on the picture. Like Marie.......... on the outside a lot of 'Can Can' as if everything is fine but on the inside a very opposite life.Thank God I can play with color and flowers! They always cheer me up! I hope this little piece of artwork will cheer you up as well! Have a wonderful day! Blessings,

Memory wire bracelets in purple and blue

Handmade memory wire bracelets with purple and blue beads by Ingeborg van Zuiden
Hello there!

It's in the middle of the night and I can't sleep so I decided to break the bad circle by getting up and writing this little post here. Maybe mr. Sandman will come nearer this way๐Ÿ˜‹

I wanted to share some of my latest memory wire bracelets with you as well as a little key chain, all created in blue and purple shades. I'm a bit addicted to creating these kind of bracelets lately. They are so easy to make! Just some memory wire and beads and your beadtools, that's all!

Memorywire is a type of wire that has a memory for coils. It comes back in the same shape all the time and the most wonderful thing is it fits any wrist, so is very easy to put on! On Youtube you can find many tutorials on making memory wire bracelets. I'm just showing off here to inspire you. I'm don't like to teach, to be honest. ๐Ÿ˜Ž I do hope I actually could inspire you and that you like my bracelets. Come back soon, as I made more of them and will share some soon! See you later alligator!

Happy Easter to you!

Hi there,

Just before heading to bed quickly sharing some of my latest handmade artist trading cards with you and some pictures from the garden flowers from early spring. I made a quick wreath from pruned willow branches and added it to the fence my dear husband made on our terrace. Three years ago our Easter was very much different as we then had to spend the holidays in the hospital because my husband had heart surgery then and had to stay there almost one month. We are thankful that he made it and God blessed him with a very good surgeon. My husband is the best man on earth๐Ÿ’“!

I also added some branches behind a wall basket filled with pansies. I thought that is pretty and Easter fancy. I hope you like the eyecandy and I will make my blogpost short today.

Happy Easter ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’›to you and blessings from the Netherlands, where it's pretty cold and freezing temperatures during the nights are expected! Of course my hydrangea buds will freeze off yet again this year ๐Ÿ˜•

Playing with wires

Handmade memory wire bracelets with purple and blue beads by Ingeborg van Zuiden
Dear reader,

It's in the middle of the night here in the Netherlands. I can't sleep so I decided to break the circle and get up and update my blog and then try to get back to sleep again.

I wanted to share some of my latest handmade memory wire bracelets with you as well as a little beaded keychain I created. It's all created in blue and purple. I shared the blue memory wire bracelet with the feathers  the other day.

I'm starting to become addicted on making memory wire bracelets lately, haha. A lot of beads go into them though, so if you want to get rid of your bead stash...... start making one of your own.๐Ÿ˜ There are tons of memory wire bracelet tutorials to find on YouTube. I just share the inspiration here with you๐Ÿ˜Ž. I hope you like my bracelets! I also fabricated a simple blue silver toned keychain with dangling beads, lace and trimmings. I use all kinds of beads in my projects, both cheap and expensive and like to match them together. I think all materials have a beauty of their own. I hope you can agree with me!

Enjoy the eyecandy! I'm going to try to get some sleep again! Happy Sunday to you!
