Heyas Everyone, I just wanted to share what I put together yesterday and this morning. I had a visit from Oskadis, and we spent the day talking beads and beadings and I finally got my first copy of Beads and Buttons!

First I have a blue set that was inspired by a shirt of mine with earrings.

Next is a bracelet I made last year and had strung on black leather, I finally tore it apart and annealed it and then added the antiques brass beads to finish it off.

This one is one of the two I'm making for the two other class moms, who happen to be my dear friends here.

Finally a brown set for myself with earrings.

Last but not least at all, is my Butterfly Kisses Set, I restrung the necklace because I was allergic to the toggle in my neck, and used Nymo thread from Oskadis to give it the more supple feel it needed and completed the bracelet.

Thanks for looking!

Common Jaci, save some beading materials for the rest of us! ;)

You know how I feel about your beads but I'll say it again, Fabulous! I can't imagine how long it would take me to make alll of those perfect little beadies.

Thank Retta and Bangs! It means a lot to me when people look and take time to comment. BTW make comments, constructive criticism is always helpful for my next round of beading attempts.

Wow! You been really busy!

I LOVE that turquoise/blue/white color combination! The three strands of seed beads between yours worked out great :clap:

I miss though the necklace you started working on ;) Will wait to see.

Still have to post all the things I made during my stay here ... made some pictures of them on me. When I finish converting them to jpeg I'll hog the next thread :p

Greetings from the overheated attic of my bf!!

sarah - great stuff - such variety! i love the black and white for it's boldness and i also like the way you've used seed beads instead of the bali and bicone treatment that i see a lot of - enjoy your B&B!

Wonderful Jewelry! Your beads are looking sooo nice. I especially love the blue one, but the red and black one is very interesting too. I really like what you've done with the seed beads and hearts.
