Thursday, February 15, 2007
This uses cultured pearls, labrodite and gold spacers.
This was in the June 2006 issue of Bead and Button magazine, the pattern is called Arabesque Bracelet by Joanie Jenniges. This is one of two color combinations that I did.
Another Sandra Halpenny design

This is a necklace/bracelet set that I made for another online friend!!
And yet another for an online friend. This one was for a Secret Valentine exchange.
This is actually the first piece of jewelry that I made. While on a women's retreat I noticed a bead store where you could actually make something there. That was how I spent my free time at the retreat. Needless to say the addiction started!
So here goes:
This is a pattern by Sandra Halpenny called "Seed and Fire". I wanted to make something for fall and this reminded me of little leaves.
This bracelet is based on a pattern by Glenda Payseno. I came up with the colors for it. It is one of my favorite bracelets to wear. The picture following is a close-up. I made this to wear with the necklace that is following. It uses the same beads that were used in the necklace but isn't an exact match but I like it.
This necklace uses beaded beads based on a pattern by Florence Turnour and Gwen Fisher. They just add so much to the necklace. I am so HOOKED on making beaded beads. This is one of my favorite necklaces as well. (Of course I have several that I could say that about! :-))
This necklace as well incorporates beaded beads. This was made for a special online friend as part of a Secret Santa exchange at Christmas. She mentioned that her favorite color was green so I made this for her with that in mind. The first picture in next post is a close-up of the beads.
