    Hi guys. To answer the last couple questions, Crystal Canary, I am using Beadsmith super-Lon size 18 cord to knot with. So far it fits most of the beads I’ve used. I usually just have to knot once but on bigger hole beads I have to double knot for a larger knot that won’t fit through [...]

    Wow, thank you Mary S! You know the exact procedure. Thanks for your interest Crystal Canary! I actually have three Etsy jewelry shops. One is for more high end jewelry (Mayababy Jewelry), one is for more mid range jewelry (Rocknit Jewelry) and one is for lower priced jewelry using brass and copper in a more tribal [...]

    Thanks for the great comments everyone. Yes, Crystal Canary, I use a knotting tool. Once I got the hang of it, it went pretty smoothly. I had to practice a lot first because I am a perfectionist so if I made a mistake I cut the whole thing apart and started over. I almost gave up [...]

  • Wow! Gorgeous combination of colors. I used to make earrings like this all the time. Your design has inspired me to do some again after a very long time. I made a long necklace using this design with various sizes of rock crystal on a sterling silver chain. I made it for me but ended up [...]

    You are a nice friend! Beautiful combination of beads. I have this same dog tag on a necklace. I love Lipstick Ranch pendants and charms.

    I also love the use of fabric in your design. The colors are really beautiful. I know what you mean about waiting for the design to come to you for a focal or a certain bead. I have some beads I bought several years ago in San Diego while on a vacation with my cousin. She [...]

    Beautiful design bracelet, Asia. The color is so rich and your bead cups are the perfect complement to the beads. This would look perfect worn for the holiday season.

  • Rocknitjewelry commented on the Design “Moon Glow”   2 months ago

    Love your design! I have these beads also. So far I’ve just made a pair of earrings with them. They remind me of labradorite.

    I love the one without the chain also. Beautiful assortment of beads. There’s that African opal that I love!

    Hi everyone. Thanks for all the great comments! Yes, Asia, the cross is from Wondrous Strange. I love raku and theirs is so beautiful. Everyone have a great holiday weekend.

    Hi SquirrelGirl. To answer your question, yes you just tie it on long or short. I love lariats because they’re so versatile. The fluidity of knotting really works well with lariats that tie. I’ve done wire wrapped lariats before but they tend to get stuck when you tie them. The second picture shows the lariat wrapped [...]

    Beautiful combo of stones in this bracelet! I love green in all shades. Perfect for St. Paddy’s Day. Great job.

    Loving these colors for spring right now! Beautiful bracelet. Love the star toggle. I like toggles because they’re so much easier to put on by yourself.

  • Rocknitjewelry commented on the Design “Spring is Here”   4 months, 2 weeks ago

    Hi SYD, I think the metallic just refers to the finish on the leather that makes it look iridescent instead of flat. I don’t think there is such a thing as metallic leather or leather made with metal either but I could be wrong. This is my first time using this type of leather but I [...]
