Elspeth Series

I hope that you are having a wonderful summer weekend.  I have been enjoying this holiday weekend.  Tonight we will be heading out for fireworks and a picnic supper. What a great way to celebrate the 4th of July!

I also wanted to share with you this series I've done.  It is made up of a bracelet, ring and earrings.  The bracelet goes together quickly and is a perfect summer accent. 

The earrings are my first try at making a layered earring.  I had a hard time getting a photo to show the two layers but what is particularly nice is that the second layer gives the earring a lot of stability and makes it hang nice.

Last but not least is this lacey ring that finishes the set.  It makes a very nice accent ring.  It is great for a index or middle finger ring.  I love the shadow in first picture that highlights its lacy-ness.

I hope that you are having a great summer and enjoying the warm weather.  Happy Beading!!

These are just stunning! I am truly in awe once again of your sheer talent with seed beads. How long does a set like this take to make? You used the perfect summer colors! If you ever sell earrings in this style, I'd love a pair! I rarely wear earrings but want to give it a try...something like this would be perfect. These would be popular in all shades of the rainbow!

I love the new set. It's so summery and cool looking with your choice of colors and the lacy stitch. Wonderful!
