Lyamayeva on PCDaily

Hamburg’s Antonina Lyamayeva calls these her Bagels necklaces. This one is called Eastern Tales. The flat disks have big holes and jumble up nicely. She combines solid colors and patterned disks with a few metal circles thrown in for bling.

This design is quite trendy and it’s another good use for bits of your favorite canes. (Antonia sells a tutorial.)

She’s an accomplished caner which you can see in a separate Etsy shop here. She also works with glass and metal. Check her out on Pinterest and Facebook.

More Eastern Tales

I’m flying to Malta at the end of the week (and I’m blaming the mishap with Betsy Baker’s link yesterday on travel jitters). My speech is ready but I’m not packed.

I’ll report from EuroSynergy for a few days and then I’ll close up shop for a month, posting intermittently as I travel in Nepal and Turkey. After years of blogging daily, I’m anxious to see what happens when I unplug.

I sure hope you’ll check in often for my news from the road and be here when I get back. It’s an opportunity for you to shake up your routine too.

      I really like the way the beads slide about their neighbours, and the variety of finishes on the beads. It’s a good title for the necklace.

      If you have time, visit the Çemberlita? Hamam in Istanbul, and take a clean set of clothes for after. I guarantee you will never have felt so clean in your entire life!

                I hope you have the very best time on your travels. You’ve certainly earned a break! I’ll check in every day and study the archives while you’re unplugged. Much Joy! Peg
