My name is Renata and I am from Belgium. My passion is making jewelry. 

A lot of my pieces take 3 or sometimes more days to make. But I just love making special jewelry. I always try to be original and make things that are one of a kind.

Seadbeady's Wedding Jewelry Shop

Ahah did you miss me - no - maybe just a little bit

Had my granddaughter over yesterday, she's 1.5 years old,  and I was so tired but fulfilled at the same time. She is so adorable and super energetic ๐Ÿ˜Š

Actually I wanted to tell you about my new Etsy shop. I decided to take the wedding jewelry out of my Seadbeady shop and put it in a new shop SeadbeadyBridesJewel

So that the beautiful brides to be don't have to search through the huge pile of listings from my Seadbeady shop. Haven't got loads in it at the moment. Still in the moving process. So at the moment some are in my Seadbeady and some have moved to my new shop. It's a time consuming process cause I am updating them at the same time. I know it's my own fault ๐Ÿ˜…

Here are some items I already moved to the new Bridal shop:

White Bridal Jewelry for Her Statement Gemstone Bead Necklace

At the moment I have 9 items in my shop - but no worries I will make it to more than 30 in a few days - so keep track of my new shop if you are a bride to be. I have a lot of unique one of a kind jewelry pieces that only you could be wearing on your wedding.

Hope you enjoyed .........Until next time.........Have a great weekend.........

Fashion Set By Seadbeady (5)

Today's fashion set is on how you could pair up a pair of Sneakers.

Sneakers were primarily designed for sports or any form of physical exercise. Nowadays they are a part of fashion and used for everyday wear.

Originally the term sneakers referred to how quiet the rubber soles were on the ground, in contrast to the hard leather sole shoes that were much more noisier. With Sneakers you could 'sneak up' on someone.

They have also become an important part of hip hop and rock 'n roll cultures since the 1970s. Some artist sign huge contracts with major brands such as Nike, Adidas or Puma.

Here's the set I made for you today - Boohoo is a fashion brand and in no way meant to scare you  ๐Ÿ˜œ

Boohoo Kayla Flamingo Embroidered Halter Crop for 20 €

Boohoo Katie Crop Ponte Edge To Edge Blazer for 17 €

Boohoo Helen Ripped Hem Denim Mini Skirt for 25 €

Boohoo Sophie Floral Embroidered Trainer for 25 €

Boohoo Hope Statement Strap Mini Tote Cross Body Bag for 27 €

Boohoo Clear Lip Gloss for 5.08 €



All very affordable items so that they are accessible to everyone. I know we are not all bathing in wealth - well at least I am not - but it is said that money doesn't make you happy. 
I am not so sure about that - today I went to a store with bead supplies and bought for over 200 € and it did make me happy you know. It's good though that I only do that once or twice a year lol ๐Ÿ˜€

Hope you enjoyed my post today.......Until next time.......Have a great day

Seadbeady's Finds on Etsy - Belgium

Today I decided to make some promotion for my fellow country shops - All made in Belgium

The state Belgium was founded in 1830 after the Belgian Revolution, when it separated from the Netherlands. But Belgian history goes much further back. In the prehistoric time the land was populated by different Tribes, like for example the Nervli and the Eburones under Ambiorix reign.

Some facts about Belgium:
  • Belgium has more than 800 kinds of beers.
  • Per year Belgium produces 220,000 tonnes of chocolate.
  • The first skyscraper to be built in Europe was built in Antwerp in 1928.
  • Adolphe Sax invented The saxophone was invented in the early 1840's in Dinant.
  • A few famous Belgian companies: Cรดte d'Or, Neuhaus, AB Inbev, Spa, Materne, Vandemoortele, Natan, Delvaux,...
And last but not least these Belgian Shops I picked for you.

Confessions of a Seadbeadaholic part 5

Last time I told you about my Fimo episode. Haven't made any more beads lately, but that doesn't mean I will never make them again. Never say never, that's something my husband always says. Actually he says it in Dutch "zeg nooit nooit" .

In my surfing I also discovered the art of beading. Surfing on the internet off course, although I did surf ages ago. Well not that long but I was 22 when I attended a Windsurfing Camp. Nope I am no longer a spring chicken. Ok if you really wanna know I am 54. Eek yes stop reading all the rubbish of this stupid old lady haha.

So now for the ones that are still interested ๐Ÿ˜
Here is one channel on youtube that blew my mind away:
https://www.youtube.com/user/Beading4perfectionis
Really you should go and check it out. And I also discovered a magazine that really inspired me
http://www.facetjewelry.com/magazine/bead-button
You might as well check that out at the same time ๐Ÿ˜Ž

At first I started with pretty cheap beads I found in the Veritas (Belgian shop) from Gรผtermann size 9


And I made of lot of pieces with them. Like this one that I made in 2013 ๐Ÿ˜€


The necklace wasn't too bad but a terrible picture again. It's only since 2 years that I have been working hard on improving my pictures. Let me show you one that's in my Etsy shop now and a bit similar to this one.


https://www.etsy.com/nl/listing/486821866/kralentouw-juwelen-zus-kralenketting?ref=listings_manager_grid

You could say that there is a slight difference between those pictures. I know what shop to pick if I had to choose between these two pictures. Wouldn't you??

But at the time I didn't see it, don't ask me why? Maybe I was a little too subjective?
So I opened an Etsy shop, thinking my pieces would be good enough to sell.

Eh noooo, off course not. So after half a year of waiting for my first sale I decided to close my shop again.

And I am ending my blogpost too for today.......Until next time.......Hope you enjoyed reading

Fashion Set By Seadbeady - Fall Colors

The Pantone Color Institute evaluates the colors from the fashion designers at New York Fashion Week every year. For the first time they made an evaluation of London Fashion Week. These are the top 10 colors they highlighted for fall 2017.

PANTONE Fashion Color Report Fall 2017, London





















So I thought I might make you a set with some of those lovely colors. And it's budget friendly this time too. So that means not digging to deep in your wallet (although no matter how much I try mine is not getting any deeper).

Here are the items I chose for you:

Abstract Geo Print Blouse for 13 €

Navy Velvet Elastic Booties for 41 €

Black Pebbled Faux Leather Tote Bag With Strap for 6.76 €

Women's Eau de Lacoste Sensuelle 3.0 oz Spray for 76 €


That is pretty affordable don't you agree ???
Hope you enjoyed my post for today.......Until Tomorrow.......Have a great day

Seadbeady's Finds on Etsy - Girls Dresses

Time for some more Etsy finds. Today it's all about Girl Dresses.

Aren't they super cute those little girl dresses. I have a sweet granddaughter of one and a half and I just love seeing her in a dress. And I am sure all you grandmothers are like me when you go shopping for clothes. You have to tell yourself noooo this time I am gonna buy something for myself. But I know those cute dresses are so irresistable.

Ah yes a bit of history first maybe. In the Ancient world both men and women wore a similar garment that resembled a dress and was in general called tunic.

From this tunic the dress developed into cassocks, worn by both female and male priests
.


And into Fustanella, worn by soldiers


An ancient Greek Tunic inspired an early twentieth gown designer to create the Delphos gown.


In the 19th century Dresses increased dramatically to the hoopskirt and crinoline supported styles.
Since the 1970's, no one dress type or lenght has dominated fashion for long. Short or ankle-lenght they all appeared side by side in the fashion magazines and catalogs.

Nowadays you can find a lot of girls dresses that are very much influenced by trends in adult wear.
But I have bored you enough with history - I know - you wanna see those cute little dresses I chose for you ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
