This is a new bracelet I have listed on my Etsy Jewelry Shop here. I could not get a good photo of this bracelet - I must have taken over 100 pictures and none do it justice. It is very shiny and metallic and it does not come through in the photos. It is a nice design and a beautiful lime green color - just right for spring - if spring ever gets here!

This Peyote Freeform Necklace called "Ice Storm" was made for the Etsy Beadweavers March Challenge "Stormy Weather". The necklace was created using peyote stitch in a freeform format. Each bead was sewn by hand - the beads used are seed beads size 8 with some larger pearl accent beads used as decoration - all beads are in different shades of white, grey and silver. It has a hand beaded toggle and loop closure. This necklace took many hours of beading to create and is truly one-of-a-kind. The actual necklace measures 17 inches in length. It is 3 inches in width at its widest point. This necklace is in my Etsy Shop here.
