Sabine Lippert's Lovely Designs

Back in March, I became the proud owner of Sabine Lippert's Beaded Fantasies: 30 Romantic Jewelry Projects ( )! This book is fantastic and has so many great projects and I've been busy dabbling in a couple but haven't had a chance to blog about it. The first project I tackled was Nathalie's Pendant:

Next up was another in blue/silver:

The next one I rushed in making and accidentally did only three sides and inadvertently ended up with a triangle.  I think it made its way into my sons pocket (he loves kidnapping my rejects to keep in his pocket!) and it got a little rough around the edges!

Last week I opened the book again and started trying out the Scheherazade pendants! Once again I am thrilled with the results!

I absolutely love these two projects.  Sabine's instructions are fantastic and these projects work up pretty quickly.  A beautiful combination of cubic raw and netting!

In other news - autumn is presenting itself in its full glory here in New England!  Weather was warm earlier this week so we took the kayaks out and it was really spectacular!

Also - here is the maple tree in front of one of the restaurants where I work.  I feel so lucky I get to work here and see this beautiful scenery!

Enjoy your weekend!


  1. Pretty. I too made the Scheherazade pendant and was very pleased by the result.

  2. Love your projects. Sabine's designs are so beautiful. You 're pictures of Fall in New England are beautiful! Have a great weekend.

  3. Gorgeous - both the beading and scenery! I was up in Salem last weekend and there's way more foliage up there than down the Cape yet.

  4. Both the Nathalie's and Scheherazade pendants came out gorgeous! I'm glad you're enjoying the fall scenery. That maple tree with the blue sky looks so pretty.

  5. Oh how I love Fall in New England. The colors are on fire, the bugs are gone and the weather has just a touch of coolness to it so you can enjoy long strolls, a paddle or just a relaxing sit in the warming sun. Loving the depth to these beaded pieces. they are stunning and really stand on their own!

  6. Your Fall photos are spectacular...New England in Fall ~ you are a very fortunate woman!!!
    I think you wore that first pendant and earrings when we had dinner & it looked beautiful! Those circles ~ OMG do I love them!!! A lot.
    But what I love even more is that your son carries your projects in his pockets :-)


Thank you for your comments!! They really mean a lot!
