Eridhan Creations: A Loss to The Beading World (9/18/2015)
On many occasions, I have posted links to Eridhan Creations in this blog. Justyna was Eridhan Creations, and sadly she has passed away on August 10, 2015, after a long fight with cancer. Justyna was a prolific beader, making many free and paid tutorials of beautiful jewelry.
Justyna’s husband, Sebastian, has reopened her Etsy Shop under a new name:
If you’ve ever admired her work, downloaded any of her free patterns or bought patterns from her Etsy shop, please take a moment and buy some of her patterns. The money will go to charity and her family.
Sebastian also intends to keep her blog online to share with the beading community:
Justyna touch many lives in a positive way. If she touched yours, please visit her blog to share your story or just leave condolences.
I’ve collected some of her free and paid patterns below:
Just as I promised yesterday, I’ve got for you the free tutorial for a beaded bracelet. “Simplicity” is yours now. 😉
After a few bracelets it’s about time for more pendants. And for more twisted designs, as it has been a while since I have shown the last one. This time it is a twisted flower – or at least something that looks like a flower to me. Traditionally made with Delica beads and seed beads in three different sizes, with a glass pearl in the center. It is quite big, because it measures something like 6,5cm (2.5″) at the widest point.
Finally! I admit it has taken lots of time for me to force myself to some working again. But now, as the spring is already here and the flowers are in bloom, the tutorial for a beaded flower, as I promised in this post, is ready and available to all of you. So enjoy.
After some beadweaving, it was finally time to do some bead crocheting instead. So here I am with two bracelets – one with the rose pattern, matching the necklace from this post, and another one, more geometric. The first one is a bit wider, 25 beads per row, while the second one is made with only 20 beads. Both are flattened, as this is the way that I like wearing them. Also, both are made entirely with Toho size 11 seed beads.
As I promised yesterday, I have prepared a quick tutorial how to make a beaded bead… Now you will see that despite looking complicated, it is very easy to make.
A little thing that you have seen here already, but this time it is white and silver. It is also accompanied by a tutorial that is available on Craftsy and Etsy. This beaded bead is actually very easy to make – with some experience you can complete it in just one hour.
And now I’m off to spend some money in her Etsy Shop.
Rest In Peace Justyna.
