Kelleys Island Sea Glass Memory Locket Necklace

    Kelleys Island is a very special place for me. It's a small rocky island in Ohio, USA located on one of the Great Lakes- Lake Erie. Very beautiful nature, magical atmosphere, so unreal... like a little paradise. For a girl from different country experience something like that was pretty impressive. I worked for 2 summers,  had so much fun with my friends and met my future husband  there.

Easy Bead Bracelet

It's been a while sense I posted anything... well it's a new year and time to start back up. It was a good year of hand-making for me and learning new technique - bead embroidery. I love to do cross stitching, but I find bead embroidery easier and faster, piece comes really beautifully and stunning, the 3d effect works. I made 7 pictures with beads, you can check it out at needlework section. I'm working on my eighth picture right now and just can't stop. I opened my Etsy shop - ElockaCreations.

Today I have very beautiful and easy bead bracelet to make for you...

Cute Little Purse

I made a nice summer hat for my friend’s daughter and I had a little bit yarn left, so I decided to crochet her a little purse to go with a hat. That was really bright and colorful yarn and purse looks really cute, I kind of want it too :)
It is simple to make, follow the pattern and crochet a rectangle, then fold it and sew sides, make a string long enough, sew the flower or button on and make a loop to hold top part from opening. Done!
