Beaded Treasures by Kristen Ho

Most of the pieces made by me have start out as a challenge wondering "how was that made"? or "what if.." I enjoy the intricate, complicated designs as much as the simply smart pieces.

Wanted to share some of my newest creations. Inspired by Kinga Nichols and her Inspiration Boxes. If you are interested in trying your hand at bead embroidery, Kinga's works are full of whimsy, bright colors, wonderful texture. These three pieces are things I made from Kingas last 3 inspiration boxes. I enjoy trying to stretch my embroidery skills. If you can't tell... I seem to love the combination of blues/reds/turquoise/bronze.

One more favorite today. This is Beloved by Heather Kingsley-Heath. I gave the keychains to my girls. I hid a little message in the middle of the beadwork. ❤️ The green one has been through a lot of wear and tear 😀. I love to wear the blue one.

Newest hot off the bead table. Took too long with this one. I usually bead in a random dot pattern. This one I wanted to mimic the leaf cabochon in the background. It's a nice textured feel.

Kinga's Inspiration Box, 2018 Winter, Volume 9

Hey Beady friends!
Did Santa forget your Beady present this year?? 🎁
If yes, check out this inspiration box from Kinga Nichols. This time the colors she uses are bright blue, scarlet red, and turquoise blue. It comes in a bright blue foil wrapped package so it can easily go under the tree.

PLEASE READ THE FULL DESCRIPTION BEFORE PURCHASING.... The first box like this was made to accompany the video I did for Interweave Publishing, called Creative Bead Embroidery 2, Stitching with shaped beads and fine fabrics. See more about the video here:

Work in progress! I started this bracelet this morning. It's 1:30am and I just finished. Of course I had other responsibilities in between but I'm happy to show my handiwork. This still needs finishing work.

"Beach Memories". Using shells collected in GA and vintage crystals from NYC. I especially love the blue one. The shell was broken at the hinge but I love the color. Used the broken part to my advantage. (Sort of hope that one doesn't sell... can't recreate the broken shell. It's truly a OOAK)

Dear beading friends, have you ever searched and searched to all ends of the Earth to find that "vintage" bead? I think I found it!! I bought the tutorial for this necklace back in 2014 and have looked ever since for a cabochon like what was used in the original. Pounced on etsy on what I believe is the real deal. I present the finished necklace. Design by Hannah Rosner.

My version of Melissa Grakowsky's Little Windows won a third place ribbon at Nelly's Needlers Needlework Competition in the Commercial Beadwork division. It's just as beautiful on the back of the bezels as it is from the front.

My newest favorite piece. Bead embroidery. Fun to make. I'm not sure what kind of cabochon I used here. It might be a willow creek jasper, or an imperial jasper.

Love this beaded bead. Amphora design by Sabine Lippert. My friend Susan picked out the colors and I thought they remind me of Marie Antoinette. I feel like I want to eat macaroons. And don a white powder wig.

My newest challenge has been a freeform rose. Had to translate a Russian YouTube video. The rose was made by stitching each petal separately. And stands on its own there on the table. I have not yet connected the petals.

Trying to figure out what craft shows to participate in this year. I usually do 4 shows in period of a month. It's hard to keep up with the work weekend to weekend. So I'm contemplating doing three shows instead.

I've been trying to finish up projects that have been sitting on my work table.
