Bead Embroidery

Yesterday I learnt a new technique called Bead Embroidery in jewelry making…I can already tell you this is my favorite so far. Its fascinating that this technique allows to create endless pattern. I made a simple pendent but the options are multiple…I have here some inspirations from the web…simple to complicated..but every piece is beautiful in its own way…

I started with a pendent and wanted to wire to a thick black thread but I had some black beads….i had got them for a different project few months ago…so i made a chain out of it and used for this pendent and I love the look! Do ya ? 🙂

For those who are interested to learn this technique, I found a tutorial that could help…

Body butter with coco butter

I did not expect my body butter that i made couple of weeks ago to get finished so soon but it did. So I started making another batch and thought I will explore with coco butter this time. Instead of shea butter, I made coco butter as base and added few more essential oils this time.

The picture says it all!!

coco butter – 1 cup

coconut oil – 1/2 cup

olive oil – 1/2 cup grapeseed oil (preservative) – 1/8 cup

Vit E oil – 1/8 cup

I melted coconut oil, shea butter, olive oil and mixed grapeseed oil and vit E oil to it. Put it in freezer for 45 mins and whipped the butter and there I have my coco butter body butter!! No more dry skin 🙂
